Lil' illustration. Ink on paper. I did a humble little breakdown of the inking process. Hope you all can find it useful. Thanks!
The finished piece.
This are my main tools: My good old 3 year old pencil, a bottle of water, a #2 Series 7 Winsor and Newton brush, and drawing ink. The one I use is Kaimei Lettering Sol. Very nice ink and super water resistant.
Step 1: The sketch. Nothing fancy here just try to get the pencil lines as clean as possible so you don't get confused on wich lines to ink later on.
Step 2: I take a deep breath and begin inking. I always like to begin inking the face and the longest lines on the drawing, in this case her arms and I continue like that until I cover the whole silhouette.
Step 3: I continue inking until covering her whole silhouette and then I start adding lil' details on the inside. All of this while being extremely concentrated, a slighty off movement and you will get a wobbly line and that is no nice.
The drawing is pretty much finished. Less is more so I will leave her like this. She only needs a lil' background and a cleanup in Photoshop. After that, the piece is finished : ) Whole process takes 1 to 2 hours depending how much I procrastinate, ha!
