I was just gonna play around with character designs, I said. Don’t get carried away, I said.
Thinking of making a post on how artists can save up by getting the cheaper alternatives. So, I need to know what you guys want to see first. If I know it, I might be able to help.
No promises though, I’ll do this on my spare time. So just message me, reply, or reblog with what you want see?
Commissions are open, info is at my sidebar c:
This is a little art challenge I’ve done for myself in the free time I managed before work tomorrow. The palette is from colourpod.
hi, i really love your art, and if you arent too busy i was wondering if you could give me a few tips for drawing with ink pen, especially shading with one. im trying to improve my art and any tips would be really cool!!
Apologies for typos dsgjn
If you’re on a budget, ordinary pens are spankin’, mi amigo. I usually use them for life-drawing (meaning I practice by seeing a thing, I draw the thing, lookit dat, Skill Level Unlocked). Though ball-pens don’t always make great inking pens, gel pens or sign pens do.
BUT YOU GOTTA REMEMBER, USE THE SIGN PEN/GEL PEN ON PENCIL—NOT COLOURED PENCIL. They don’t dry as fast, so you’re gonna have the smudge of your life if you use colour. Be. Care. Full.
Normally I use felt pens. Now these are sold individually or as a pack (usually in thickness’ .1, .2, .3, .4, and .5). I suggest you buy one, and the one being .3, Middle Earth. That way you know if Felt Pens are for you or not (‘cause they pricey, home bro).
I have a .005 because I get nervous on faces, and a flat calligraphy pen ‘cause I get lazy in shading. Also, that’ll help save ink. Speaking of which—
Permanent markers are great if you just wanna fill in some huge space—BUT THEY WILL BLEED THE SAME WAY YOU ENEMIES WILL CRY. Annoyingly. So be sure to place something thick and perishable beneath your paper.
FUN CRAP TO SAVE YOUR STUFF:
I usually use a watercolour pencil ‘cause they’re cheap and come in a variety of colours. And I can even use them for something else, if ever.
Now, what if you were the murderer in Edgar Allan Poe’s Tell Tale Heart? Spoiler, you killed a dude and are now nervous as heckie. Chances are, your hands will shake and your cute bunny drawing ends up with a cowlick
Gosh golly, how do we fix this? Why, by making it thicker!
If you ever make a mistake with your inking, you can usually save yourself with either thickening the lines, OR covering it up with more design.
Thick lines are also helpful ‘cause they could help create depth. Example, a dude is far and a dude is all up in your face? Thick lines!
MY INKING PROCESS HOLLAHOLLA:
When it comes to shading, it’s really done something by eye. When I do it I usually ink the base:
Fill in the shadows with the calligraphy or permanent markers.
And add detail
This is the part where you have to find yo self. Calm yer life, drink some tea, and draw ‘cause you want to not ‘cause you need to. When you do that, you look at other artists’ works for pegs, see how you want something to look like and use them for reference, et voila—you have your own process.
However, if you ever need some white ink, you can always buy Liquid Paper/Eraser/Whiteout/Why does everyone call them something different. It’s liquid whiteness, here’s how it looks like:
You can either be more traditional and detail oriented Queen Emanuela Lupacchino.
Or highly stylised like King Mike Mignanarlafldsgsdlslng
And that’s p much all I got atm :D If you guys got more questions, don’t hesitate to ask ;D
