This is a new style I am trying out. I have found a great Sumi ink from Japan and it smells awesome and the blacks are really dark. I have been on a quest for a really nice Black ink that only goes into the gray scale if I add water or something else...not turn gray right out of the bottle. I used to really like Higgins Black Magic ink but it lost its darkness over time.
Anyhow I approached this draawing with very little pencil work for the underdrawing, basically enough to get the idea. The main drawing was done in ink, something a artist named Grant Lund many years ago told me to to do...to gain more confidence in your drawing skills...draw in ink.
He was right!
And this is Star Wars...something that got me into drawing many years ago!
