Traditional ink sketch of Sakirah Rodaun based on a scrapped pose from my Bluelight project using a combination of a series of black ink ball pens for shading and a Uni-Ball Vision for darker lines and fully inked areas.
The 3D pose I used for a reference was scrapped because the angel dress I was clothing her with was not giving dynamic simulation results I was happy without clothing it looked too seductive. There was also strange forms resulting from the topology in the ankles that were apparent when they were twisted into the pose. Bare skin is fun to sketch with pens however so I saved a screenshot of a pixelated test render.
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.
