I just discovered your blog this week. It's been fun trying to catch up. Your art is very inspiring. I would love to read more about your technique and materials.
Hi Joanne,Thanks! My technique right now for most of what you see here is as follows: I draw my initial sketch VERY rough with a prismacolor warm grey marker 30%. At this stage I am usually just seeing what happens, playing with shapes and trying to get a nice pose and good proportions. If and when that coalesces into something I want to develop further, I then take my pocket brush pen and add the linework, being careful with the weight of the lines because the brush pen lets you do really thin or really thick lines. Using the brush pen is a new thing for me, but it's a great tool. I've been toying with the idea of putting some videos up, I just need to figure out the best way to do it. Hopefully you'll see that soon. Thanks for the nice comment!
I'll be looking for those videos. Thanks!
