ink study

I previously posted some mixed media studies where I was trying out some different mark making techniques to see what I liked and what might work for my graphic novel. I posted them on Making Graphic Novels and got a piece of feedback that I should try a person in a background and see how that goes. Below is a series of drawings that should take you through the process. The first is the pencil drawing. I’m including this just to give some context. Next is the ink drawing. This is probably tighter than the previous studies. And finally is a rough of how I might paint/colour my comic. The colouring is still pretty experimental, but it’s my first thought and I just wanted to see how it would work out.

I’m not completely happy with this and I’ll definitely keep working on the exact way I want to colour it. But for now, it’s an interesting start. And I had to start somewhere.
