Ethan Inks One

Ethan did a swell job on Ernie here. I added my little nitpick notes. What Ethan did best was make all the lines come together to make a living character. It all holds together. Sometimes inkers will think of each line in terns of itself and then you end up looking at a collection of lines instead of a living breathing cartoon character. Ethan FEELS the life of Ernie and that's the ultimate goal. He also felt Jim Smith's style and did a good job bringing out Jim's natural feel for solidity and 3 dimensional caricaturing.
