Black ink and B2 pencil base with black, white, and grey charcoal (textured over a copper board). Highlights done in white ink (bleached not synthetic).
Going back to my roots a little bit. I’ve felt like I’ve been relying on color a little too much to fix contour and compositional issues, so I wanted to practice some pure black and white. I messed up the nose pretty bad, but I’m happy with the hand and how the jackets texture turned out!
Been writing a lot and loving it. Need to focus more on Organic chem 2, but I’m sure I’ll strike a better balance.
Finally got around to adding another layer. I didn’t have a blue, so I used a very light coat of “Midnight Violet”. I’m actually okay with how the purple turned out. I think it amplifies the pinks muted tones.
