Before draw night, I wanted to ink my picture of Bearclaw for Derek to see if the gray thing I came up with a week earlier still produced happy results. Before I began, I played around with the ink brushes to get in the swing of things. The actual doodles didn't matter too much, but I thought someone might enjoy seeing them.
The actual inks -- finished at draw night -- still made me happy with the approach, but of my two light-gray Pitt pens, I may prefer the warm over the cold gray, the latter of which was used here. The next thing I ink, I'll try a warm. It's weird, I was just looking at some amazing inks by James Harren over at Ottley's new side project and found myself wishing I could do stuff like that, but the real point of all this fiddling lately is finding something that matches my pencils, so if anything, I might just be wishing I could wield a pencil the way that guy does inks. O artist envy.
Once draw night got going, it was the usual fare, which I was happy with. I doodled naked ladies, which I always love; hair, which I also always love, and a weird demon-looking fella with scary wings. The page started with a guy on a saddle (top-center), but I had no reference for a horse so I caved.
Sometime last week I got stuck on game progress, and when I'm busy thinking about different approaches to my Unity scripts, I start mindlessly doodling in the borders. That's what this and the next two pages are.
