I got my hands on some walnut-based sepia ink. This is my first time using it.
Monsters are such innnnnteresting people…
My favorite Looney Tunes character, but this is my first time drawing him.
I don’t think this monster needs any introduction. This is drawn a promotional still of Boris Karloff as the Creature in the 1935 movie “Bride of Frankenstein.”
The background was unintentional… the pen left a big blob of ink at the back of his head. I tried to use a coffee filter that I use for wiping the pen to blot up excess ink and it smeared. So I improvised, dipping a folded bit of coffee filter in the ink then ‘smearing’ it outward. I’m actually happy with how it turned out.
And the inking… I think I had a breakthrough tonight.
