ink

I have been posting a lot of pencil work but I also enjoy working in ink.  Sometimes I grab my extra fine ink pens….sometimes I really just want a cheap ballpoint pen.  I can really achieve a much sketchier effect with the ballpoint, but both have nice results.  Here are some examples.  Some are colored a bit as well.

This was done with different Micron pens.  Since they go all the way down to a .005 point they are really up my alley (detail, detail, detail)!

A pretty nymph gazes into the water.  This was hand inked but cleaned up a bit in Photoshop.

This was inspired by the classic fairy tale, The Snow Queen but also the children's book I have been working on, which will be a retelling of the classic Rapunzel.

Here's an example of working in ballpoint pen.  The hand drawn image was brought into Photoshop where I added a few extras - like the shine in her hair.

Here is something with a much less realistic looking approach, plus I added in some pencil, color pencil and marker.

I love this goofy drawing of the smurf village done on the fly in a notebook.
