Inktober 2018- “Giraffe”

Inktober 14- "Giraffe"

Inktober 14- “Giraffe” I really loved the curve of his neck and the light and shadow pattern in my reference photo. This is the third of the toned papers I’m trying out for Inktober, a Stillman and Birn Nova series sketchbook. I used a Gillott 303 EF nib and Perle Noire ink for the drawing. The white is mostly a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, also using a UniBall Signo for a bit of touch up.

Inktober 2018- “Baby African Elephant”

Inktober 11- Baby African elephant

Inktober 11- “Baby African Elephant”– Finally have gotten started using my dip pens! I saw this baby elephant at the San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Park some years ago. I’v e also seen them in Kenya. They always make me think of that wonderful piece of music from “Hatari”, “Baby Elephant Walk”. Strathmore 300 vellum bristol, P. Soennecken Bremerburseneeder EF nib, Perle Noire ink.
