Some pages I’ve been working on for the second book.
I finally bought a set of Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph technical pens, and they’ve been a life saver. Before, I used single-use disposable drawing pens, which was a bad idea for someone who inks as much as I do — the nibs wore down quickly, making me have to apply more pressure the more worn down they became, thus hurting my wrist. Now with the metallic tips and refillable ink of the technical pens, the ink flows so nicely and smoothly that barely any pressure is needed at all. I should’ve bought these YEARS ago. They save a lot of time and grief (and money, in the long run). The pages I just posted would not have been possible without them. As such, the art in the second book is already looking a lot more detailed than the art in the first.
ETA: See how terrible I am with art supplies? I’m only just starting to learn what professional artists should be using! This is why I don’t like it when people ask me for advice when it comes to what tools to use — I’m clueless!
