Above are two drawings which I had painted entirely in ink. The first is some fan art of a lead singer of a German band I listen to, whilst the second image is one of my more detailed owl characters. I had used finer brushes and less water for the main features of the characters, while thicker brushes and more water was used for areas which did not require as much detail, such as the background. Ink was an ideal medium for blending and indicating tone and depth in comparison to a drier medium like graphite. While both images have the contrast and mood that I had been aiming to achieve, it would also be worthwhile exploring with more detail in the backgrounds with ink for future works.
