Added 1 new A* page:I've got to be up tomorrow, so it's another late/early morning of cut-rate bloggetry! Here's a photo of an early version of today's page:|
Hm, I probably overdid the hatching and feathering by the end, but this new ink I'm using has this fascinating property of holding the brush firmly together in a strong tip, which makes such details a lot easier to do! Must be whatever binding agent makes it more waterproof than the sumi ink I was using before. Anyway I will probably have this increased lining urge worked out of my system in a week or so, at which point we'll hopefully get back to art that's a little less cluttered. :P
Oh hey and that's the old board I've been using as a drawing board for the past few weeks, just holding it in my lap, usually propped up on one crossed knee. Works pretty well! It's 3/4" thick and I know you can go buy nice thin and light drawing boards, but this one just so happens to fit my pages pretty much perfectly, so I have become attached to it. Also I'm the one who cut it to this peculiar size--that was a while back, to serve as a bit of elevation for when I stand at my stand-up computer "desk" (which is really just an old bookshelf); but I've got others that are currently providing plenty of height in a little wooden platform I constructed for that purpose, so this one was free to get ink on it; I suppose eventually it'll be pretty black around the edges.
