INKtober 2015, Day 15, Drawing 1!

INKtober 2015, Day 15 (1): Tell Me Why
9x12 brush and ink on stipple paper

Tell me why I:

Cannot distinguish
(Reason extinguished)

Cannot cope
(Loss of hope)

Cannot feel
(Unwilling to heal)

Cannot fight
(Wrong is what's right)

Sketch compared to sketchbook drawing from last year.

Sketchbook page from Brain Drain 17.5

I was inspired to try dry brush after reading Greg Ruth's The Lost Boy. If you haven't heard of Ruth, do yourself a favor and check out his work!

My drawing is not fully dry-brushed; the darkest brushstrokes are wet ink. But I kept drawing until the ink began to run out, creating heavy textures. Relaxing and engaging!
