Fun with Ink and Color

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

Royal portrait

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.

Inktober 2015

We interrupt this month’s Daily Sketches to bring you Inktober 2015.

Tyra Inktober 2nd

Inktober 2nd

This year we are both throwing our hats into the ring and participating. Right now my goal is to draw more details and arrange values to look aesthetically pleasant. Tyra is going to work on framing drawings, conveying form through value, and making cohesive illustrations. #inktober
