Some Inks and a Lifedrawing sketch

What have I been up to you ask~? Well I'll show you!

High Roads

 My first inks of professional pencils. This is the cover of High Roads #3, art by Leinil Yu. Overall I am pretty pleased with how this turned out. I used a brush for this one.

Yanick Paquette

This is some artwork from Yanick Paquette, a page from a book called Terra Obscura. The objective here was to use different tools to ink different panels.

From top left - G-Nib, Tech Pen, Brush, Brush, Marker/Nail/Knife.

I am pretty happy with this one as well, we will be doing a toning assignment on these inks as well.

I am also working on a cartoon style comic that I think I'll be hosting here online. Look forward to that over the next week.

Lastly a little life drawing from the open model session this afternoon.


  1. Oh, and did you have a favorite tool for the inks? I assume you've used all of them before. And conversely, was there one or two that you don't think you'll use as often?

  2. I have used most of the tools before. I have preferred brush since I first use them, the lines are fluid and beautiful, and can be both precise and gestural.

    I don't particularly like technical pens, while the lines are totally controlled, they feel dead to me and I like the environment to seem more alive.
