Another pen sketch last night, and one that got a bit sprawling as I kind of got carried away! Eyeballed the perspective as I went, so not as tight as it could have been, but not terrible considering I started with just the dude at the table :-D
A quick pen only doodle from my sketchbook last night as I went to bed. Think I’m going to try and do more straight to pen sketches as it really forces you to commit to the design and not pussyfoot about. I’ve also found it builds good fine liner control using different pressures for underdrawing and detailing. More to follow!
Here’s the live inking demo I did last Friday night on my Ustream channel, this week focusing on Line Weight Usage. I’m going to try to broadcast every Friday night, so if you’ve got a topic you’d like to see covered or a suggestion drop me a Tweet to @Tom_Parrish or email me using the link to the left!
A freebie for Wednesday - My textured inking brush. I often use this for grittier elements and things I’d usually use either a nib or a grease pencil/crayon for if I were working traditionally. Gives some interesting results, very responsive to pressure and tilt. Give it a whirl and see what you think :-) Drop me a Tweet or a comment if you enjoyed it or have suggestions and feel free to share it or retweet etc!
