Fun with Ink and Color

I’m currently working on a series of illustrations chronicling the life of a royal family.

I’m using ink and color pencil on my old standby, Bristol paper. I’ve been playing around with the medium for the past two days and did some experimenting with toned paper.

I want to work on marrying the ink and color more, and using the tone of the paper is just an added bonus. This just goes to show the breakthroughs you can get when you don’t rely on the same techniques all the time. I have a whole sketchbook to fill, the last page will be very interesting.
