Three Smiles, No Winks

Three SmilesThis creature and the Muck Thing from a couple of days ago were drawn last month – December 2011. I have a group of friends that likes to get together every few weeks, have lunch and draw. Some days I just do random sketches. Some days I manage a finished drawing or two.

When I’m working for publication I usually like to ink the work with a brush and maybe use a pen to fill in details. My brush and inkpot don’t travel well so, when I’m away from home I ink my work with Sharpie and Micron brand felt markers. I use the Microns for the line work and the Sharpies to fill in large areas of black. The main lines are done with an .08 Micron. I use .05, .03, and .02 for variety and finishing details.
