Sketching in Ink

Sometimes, I like to go right to ink. All of these sketches were just thrown down on the paper with little regard to outcome. I love the scratchy feel of pen on paper. Usually, I draw pencil outlines, but not with theses. It helps build control, comfort, confidence and skill. 

A few of the weapons towards the end have pencil marks, to show the comparison. The symbol of Sol Invictus was penciled quickly and those flaws showed right up in ink. 










Inklings

I like working in black and white, with a fine marker. Sometimes it works for me and other times, it doesn't. Most of the time, I lay down fine pencil lines to control the ink and erase later. The two Stave Churches on this page were direct to ink while the rest were inked over pencil.













Ironmen and Ironwomen

I wanted to get in to markers, but didn't really know where to start. The Iron Man drawings are with either sharpies (black and white) or Tul markers. They aren't very good markers and I really didn't understand that.

The final image was done with a full set of grey tone markers and despite being a copy of someone else's work, I am rather proud of the results.
