A Handful of Ink Blotches

In an effort to be a more regular poster here, I thought I would start two new threads: One covering my digital sketches, and this one that deals with any ink based scribbles. That's it, I guess. Not much more to say.

Starting with a few re-scans (I think I might have posted them somewhere on WC) that I've at some point added to at a later date, and then I'll progress from there...

Re: A Handful of Ink Blotches

These are super cool, what a wonderful use of lines. They make me want to do ink drawings.

Thanks, guys.

Re: A Handful of Ink Blotches

Great ink work, Munin. Echoing comments that it makes me want to explore pen-and-ink at some point. What pens did you use in the tree trunk sketch?

Re: A Handful of Ink Blotches

Thanks, as always, for all the encouragement.

Hobbyartist: The tree trunk was done with a cheap pack of multi-coloured Stabilo fibre-tip pens.

Re: A Handful of Ink Blotches

Your encouraging words are appreciated.

This post is actually digital (using a roughly decade old version of Corel Painter). I decided to throw it in here just to have at least one representation of digital ink (boo-hiss!)

I'm not someone that will bend a knee to the purists (they dislike biro too), but I do understand the reasoning. I'll be sure to include some totally analogue inky goodness in the following update (plus some more biro sketches... because why not), but it won't be a stippled 50+ hour portrait of a celebrity that is personally sterile to me in every sense: Some skill, no soul!

Hehe... I'm feeling like I've been a little naughty on WC, but in the journal section, so maybe I can slip under the radar. Actually, no. Doug is always there!

Anyway... digital ink thingies revolving around my love of crows and a old verse.








I love all the different variations of the rhyme, but like most things of this nature; it's very hard to find an absolute. I love that more!

I love crows - they are Lisbon's symbol!

Love your work, just love it!
