In class demo. INK DRAWING!

In my Materials and Techniques class, we did something that is fun, and a bit nerve racking, ink drawing. No pencils first, just using ink as a drawing medium. I found a bunch of random photos online and had them draw what they saw. I also forced them to use specific inking mediums, and some were a bit unusual. Below is what I came up with.
Above was drawn with a stick (like, from tree) and a pink towel someone left in my room.

Above was stick, G-nib, brush, and screentone.

Above was dip pen, stick, and towel

Above was everything. Pen, brush, stick, towel.


  1. Welcome back to the blogosphere! You were missed. I really liked the one with zipatone. They all look great, though.

    I need to do something like this to get back comfortable with ink.

  2. Thanks PS! I know,...this is the reason why it's hard to have a blog, the guilt that sets in when you don't post for a long time. Oh but don't worry I'm almost done with my Harry Potter piece for PH. I think I've hit a slower part of the quarter now so watch out!
