INKvember 2016, #3: BRAINSICK : Imprisonment
Trussed in ropes that span the night
and threads that cover day,
We each hang victim to delight
in seeing others fray.
Initial rough sketch of Paranoid; adjusted proportions.
|Decay's markings penciled in.|
Marking's filled with tightly-spaced scribbles.
|Drawing board setup!|
Nothing triggers my astigmatism like inking fine lines...
|Working at my aunt and uncle's Rockaway Beach home.|
At 22.5" high and 15" wide, this is my largest ink drawing to date!
Goofy self-portrait for reference.
I wasn't happy with how I'd inked Lily's face; I removed the line with an X-Acto knife and redrew it.
|First-pass outlines on Paranoid.|
|I worked at the kitchen table for a few hours. Good to change it up sometimes!|
|Diluted FW Acrylic ink.|
|First-pass ink wash on Lily.|
|Tying the comp together... almost literally.|
|Lily's markings brushed in with diluted acrylic.|
Due to its size, I can't scan this from home. I made nineteen scans earlier this week and they still won't piece together properly in Photoshop. If I want to scan this, I'm going to have to take it in!
