This is the second portrait I’ve tried in pen and ink. I wonder if anyone will recognize him. (Unlikely, unless you’re an American football fan.) It was fun to do, and I’d like to try more human faces in ink. I find you have to be careful with the strokes or you can really age a person.
Pen is an interesting medium. I’m really enjoying the precision that’s possible, particularly with these Copic multiliners. This one has a 0.1 mm tip. If you think about it, that is whisker thin. I like that. It also makes it easier to try and cover up mistakes, a useful thing when using ink! 😀 So much to learn. It’s always fun & challenging, this art journey!
Happy, Happy Thursday to you…….the long weekend approacheth! Peace.
