Here's another inking experiment using the lead singer to a punkband for subject matter. I don't honestly know who this is. I found him on the net while doing an image search for "punk". A character I'm designing is supposed to have a similar build, so I thought I could get some great anatomy study out of this as well as inking. For the figure I started out with a small micron pen and then added some nice chunky line weights with a tiny angular/flat brush. I wanted this to be fast and energetic. For the background I used a flat bristle oil brush that separates easily when you use it for ink. I love the texture it gives. And finally I used white Holbein ink in a G-pen nib to bring some detail back and add some lighting effects. OH, and I used a white china marker on top of the white ink to give that grainy affect. This was really fun, and out of all the inking experiments I've done lately its the closest to what I'm envisioning for a comic project I'm trying out for.
