(2400 x 1800)
Traditional ink sketch of Sakirah using a combination of a series of Bic Soft Feel black ink pens for shading and a Uni-Ball Vision and Precise V5 Extra Fine for darker lines and fully inked areas.
I set up this scene in 3D first to use as a reference for sketching out proportions and lightly planning shadows and highlights with a pen. I spent twenty hours across a few days sketching this on 9 x 12 in Canson Watercolor paper.
This isn't the first time I have filled a page with ink so I knew to skip straight to the pen that was best suited for the task rather than work up a frustration with cheaper pens that were more conservative with their flow. Cheap pens however are my favorite for gradients as their flow is slow enough to make soft shades when moving quickly. The greatest challenge with the piece was to avoid smudges and avoid darkening areas too much as there is no way to erase ink.
