Well, as you all may know, I have more free time. A lot less income, but more free time is still always a welcomed change! I've been meaning to brush up on my inking for a long time (no pun intended). For the most part I've been trying to figure out what my favorite method is. I tried these new fangled brush pens, but they seem to be no good. The dried ink isn't stable enough to withstand the eraser.
I've been rockin' the dip pen, micron, brush, and sumi ink combo, and that seems to give good results. The ink dries stable enough to just rub an eraser over it to clean up all the graphite. The pen is manageable, though I'm trying to relax more when I use it. And microns are just easy mode for cross hatching.
Also trying to familiarize myself with this adjustable curve. It makes drawing cars waaaaay cleaner, and easier to hold a steady line.
You'll be seeing more of these!
