looks like this is a popular one already! :)

playing with ink again, and mixed it with conte. i kinda like how this came out for a quickie.

Ink and Conte on 9 X 12 Strathmore Bristol Smooth. about 1 1/2 hours.

P.S. i gave up on coloring the dragon last week. i found that the WC pencils i had are not very good quality, so i'll wait another day to try it with a better set. either that, or i'll learn to handle watercolors first. i'm starting to like it better in b & w anyway. :rolleyes:

Fantastic Mike!! Everyone loves the pier shack!!! It seems to be the most popular!! I love the pen work, and the bit of color wash from the conte just completes it!!! Great work!!!

Who needs color if they can draw as well as you do? But splash of just one color is inspired. A different mood from all the others.
