Pen and Ink lovers
Where are you guys? Post your artwork in Pen and Ink here, I Will be pleased to know your work as a fellow student of this beautiful yet demanding medium! Here some of my studies:
Latest work that wasn't just an exercise. Portrait of my young cousin as the Terminator. I have to work more on metal textures with ink. Anyone have tips or resources?
This is the final version of "Red Shoes". Dip pen, Indian Ink and red pencil pastel Carbothello on Bristol board. I posted a study months ago and now I have got back to it using better paper, better ink (thank you @queennobleart, eventually I managed to buy somewhere on line that Talens you suggested me ... and it's very good !). Hopefully the final result is better too.
Hi my name is Regina and I work mostly with Indian ink and a small dipping pen. Animals are my favorite to draw and all my work is done without pre sketching.
Glad to find a place for ink lovers. This is just anatomy study based on Stan's tips of trying to maintain gesture, but also an attempt to be less dependent on hatching. Done with brush an ink ( though I did use the computer to make the paper completely white).
Asked for help
This is my first final work in a long while, maybe 18 months. So happy to eventually have worked out something that's not just an exercise. It's an application of triangular composition to a symbolic subject. Dip pen, manga nibs, indian ink on bristol paper. I'm experiencing some issues with the ink I'm using (Encre de Chine - by Herbin). Not dark as I'd like and it dries too fast on the nib. I tried Sennelier too but it gives a glossy effect if the layer is too thick. I want it matt. Any suggestions about brands I could try ? Thought about something from manga world ?:)
Your pieces are beautiful, I love the lighness and etherical atmosphere in the third one. I really love ink, pencil and also charcoal. I mostly draw digital, but I so wish I had more time, more hours per day would be perfect :D. So I am still at a total beginner level, but I thought I share these pieces anyways because I enjoyed creating them so much. :) They are done with fountain pen with a small and a bigger nib.

Hi Allan, I like your use of coloured inks, and I love the third one with the man in shadow (is it done in ballpoint pen?). I've posted some of my Inktober drawings from this year. I love drawing in ink, but my go-to medium is pencil.
I like your different shading methods in your drawings :) Nice touch with the darker areas around the skulls, gives them some punch. I'm new here, just registered today, so I'm still getting the hang of the site. I have not even set up my profile yet ;) But I guess I could manage to post an image, so here it goes. A portrait, done with fountain pens, technical pens and fineliners (for the lightest parts).
These look great - that shading in the skull must have taken you forever! I applaud your precision. I actually need to do more in ink, I find ink drawings soooo beautiful, but I am lazy and they get sloppy quickly.
