And now, the most frightening monster I’ve drawn to date… Mickey!
INKTober Day 28: Mickey
Mickey adopted us a couple years ago, but he belonged to our next door neighbors. He didn’t seem to understand and spent a lot of time with us. A few months ago the neighbors told me they were moving and asked us if we wanted to keep him. So we are behind the curve as far as Mickey is concerned.
My husband requested I draw something with tentacles for one of my INKTober drawings.
INKTober Day 20: Tentacles.
I have been working with the Tachikawa comic pens since Day 10, and I LOVE them!! I used a couple different Maru nibs for this drawing, one a bit stiffer than the other that creates really fine lines. They work well with Speedball ink.
Ironically I tried the Speedball nibs a while back, and was not impressed with the way they work.
But working with the nibs and ink takes me back to my art classes with Mr. Wong in high school. Had a generic pen nib, and he later gave me a croquill pen, which is similar to the Maru, but larger.
Someday I’ll do another pointillism drawing. All those dots…
