I've recently started playing around more seriously with grey ink markers to do black and white illustrations. For the past couple weeks, I've been experimenting with them in all aspects: How to best apply grey tones, which markers/inks to use, process of drawing the actual page, realization that I have to go back to erasing(ugh), process of digital cleanup(that's the toughest part for me)... But I like what I've been making. I love that I'm spending more time working on paper than on a computer, I love the finished and clean artwork that exists on the page when I'm done, and I love the textured feel of the grey on my linework.
This week, I practiced by drawing a T-Rex on a skateboard... because that's what I do when I have the freedom to draw whatever I want.
This is the rough pencil of T-Rad. I put bristol over top of this on the lightbox and draw a much cleaner, lighter pencil version on the bristol. Then I ink over top of that, erase the pencils, and add the grey.
