Test

Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.

Kuretake Brush Pen Review

So I recently purchased a pack of 12 of Kuretake’s Clean Color Brush Pens. Here is a review I have done of them so far.

So I first swatched all the colours to see what they looked like.  They have great pigment to them, are really bright and don’t appear to bleed through the paper (I used a plain moleskine notebook). Afterwards I played around with some doodles.  These pens create finer lines than Pentel’s brush pen, which I like. You can see with the flowers I tried blending the colours, I learned afterwards that there was a better way to blend them. The tree branches and leaves were testing brushstrokes.

Overall,  I like these pens, they’d be amazing for when I do gesture drawings.  Furthermore,  I’d like to see if I can use water with these pens, so you may see a secondary review on them in the future.

Bright colourful sparrow with ribbon. The above is a reference.

None of the original artworks are mine, they came from a tattoo flash artbook. I’m not certain which.

Kiss Me Kill Me Love Me – WIP

IMG-20110726-00128-2

Work in Progress of a future tattoo for myself. Of course now that it’s posted I’m going to have to change it. The words “Kiss Me, Kill Me, Love Me” are from the song “Child Prey” by Dir en Grey. I apologize for the blurriness.

Done using pencil crayons and ink.
