I’ve been drawing in ink, with a ballpoint pen, for the last few days. This is sort of an “inktober” thing, I suppose. I start with a light colerase rough drawing, then switch to ballpoint for rendering and details. Obviously the pen is less forgiving than the colerase pencil!
I wanted to use some intense darks on this one, while maintaining a readable line direction to describe the forms. This gets a bit lost in the chest feathers, but I’m fairly happy with the effect on the head.
Also, I moved the penguin’s beak a little bit to get a better overlap on the side of the face.
Thanks for taking a look!
