This Christmas, I was very happy to have a Faber Castell Pitt artist pen. So happy, I left it in my cupcake pencil bag with the lid off and it dried out. No! I was so disappointed. It was like five dollars for one artist pen!
Then while I was at Michael’s, I saw this sale on Sakura Micron pens, three different sizes in one pack, which I of course bought. I used them to try my hand at inking Toothless.
First, I used my non-photo blue pencil for guidelines, then I went over it in pencil to give myself a good line art, and then I inked it with my Micron pen.
After I had a clean outline, I went and looked at MonoFlax’s Deviantart gallery for inspiration.
And finally, I used my pens for inking Toothless. Ta da!
I like it! I’m probably going to do more pieces like this to turn my simple sketches into something more.
