How you build up the layers in your drawings is fascinating. Perhaps you should consider doing a tutorial for those of us who only dream of being able to draw like. Maybe that would get you out of your funk?BTW, where/how did you learn your calligraphy skills? I'm always as blown away with the different styles of writing you use in your drawings as I am by your actual drawing skills.
Hurrah! I am LOVING this work in progress thing. I've been wanting to see how you work for so long. Do you sketch it out in pencil first? This is really wonderful.
I am in total agreement, seeing the phases of your work is so interesting!
There is yet a ghost-like quality to this piece which is really seducing.
I love seeing your progress picks...a very, very smart way to update the blog during the aforementioned dry-spell (of which I am noticing none of, by the way)!You're so good my friend. So good.
Your pen is taking you to a good place! Wonderful to see the progression.
I am fascinated with how you can get such detail from a ball point pen! Do you use any special techniques for making sure it doesn't get all goopey? This is really fantastic... keep going with this idea -- I love it!
Cheers, peeps.Rhomany, this is the closest I'll get to a tutorial. I don't think I'd ever be able to put into words how I do this stuff. I just draw. Everything i do is self taught, so as far as the calligraphy is concerned it's just years of practice. I've always enjoyed it. Even when I wasn't drawing I was always doing the calligraphy stuff.Pip, nope, I don't sketch this stuff in pencil first. Just light outlines of where things go. Then if I want to change it I can always draw over them.Lynne, I do usually keep a pice of tissue to wipt the pens in case they get 'goopey'. Although if I do get pens that are like that I just stop using them for drawing. It's too annoying.Thank you all, guys.
