Hey hey howdy. I've been lurking the forums for a while, soaking my brain in the massive amount of talent around the place and generally working on getting inspired. What follows is a bunch of pages from my sketchbook. Pencil and ink for the most part, with a few coloured pencil bits mixed in.
I got a Chinese calligraphy set for Christmas, with the ink stick and brushes and everything. Spent a while playing around with it, and this is the result.
I'm pretty new to inking stuff, normally working in digital format and thus relying heavily on the safety net of ctrl-z. This is a foray into the scary world of real ink, where if you get it wrong you're stuck with it. Dip-pen and black ink. Crosshatching makes me crazy.
Further updates as I fill up the pages.
