2.20.08 - trying inks
Ink has always been my kryptonite. It is one of those mediums I never felt I did anything that looked very good. Oddly, I am a huge fan of ink masters as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Joseph Clement Coll, Franklin Booth and Edwin Austin Abbey, just to mention a few. I figured it was time to try some inking again, and maybe find my own way with the medium. And the other pencil sketch was just a quirky warrior I did to have some fun.
I started off with some pencil, than added the ink. I decided to try and ink wash on top of that, and popped a few highlights with acrylic paint. I did it on Bristol Vellum paper, but I think I need to experiment on different papers to find the ideal inking surface.
This one was real quick. No pencil, just shot in with the ink with no plan. A little scary but fun.
