@vousrein - Love seeing your style in ink. Beautiful as always!
Here's day four. I have been trying to work on heads, but I got bored of them and went for a full body today. Thanks so much to TenPenny for his critique. I think this is working a bit better. Surely I'll be raking in the commission cash by the end of the month. :P
Ooooh, I really like the one from CreatureBox. It almost looks like a sketch, but when you see how every line is very purposefully put in there, it's even extra amazing.
I also love the Elektra image. I'm not typically a fan of heavier ink lines either, as they're sometimes too muddy for me to figure out what's going on, but these are very deliberate in directing your eye and utilizing white space well!
@TenPenny - Thanks so much for the critique! I think part of the reason the initial sketch is wonky is that I was trying to get a bit of a bottom-up POV, but I don't think it was working very well. @.@ I think what you said about the lips really struck something in my brain, and I see it in the other pieces too. I feel like I'm not thinking about ink as showing form. I should be using the thicker lines to make the white part pop forward more. And the thicker the line, the more bold the white becomes, which is maybe why the hair looks like tentacles. I have a lot of food for thought for today's inking. Thanks so much!!
