Anonymous said: Can I ask you what equipment do you use? I mean like pens. Is it gel pen? I can not believe that you can make so smooth and uninterrupted lines. Sometimes thick sometimes thin… How’re you doing this? You’re a magician!
I wish I was a magician~~ It’s more than gel pens (that would be really amazing if I did all the ink drawings with just gel pens though haha XD), here are the pen/ink stuff I’ve been using/have used in my Inktober/other ink drawings~ I generally work with the micron pens and brush pens, also the brush on the far right in the brush photo + the FW ink (I’m more comfortable with brush than dip pens/croquill @w@; but I don’t use it as often because I always end up with ink all over my hands lol). The other brushes, the white gel pens, and the white container thing are all of adding white to places (either to correct/erase ink or for added detail) I’ve had practice with the tools I’m using before, so there’s familiarity with how to work with them. There’s not much magic, it’s just a lot of trial and error I’ve went through with the tools before haha Also a lot of patience and going over the lines a couple of times so they look better~ XD
My friends Lynn and Tegan join me in a collab. I did the original sketch that I drew small, scanned, resized, printed and traced for this video. Tegan did the inking potion a few days later. On the same day Lynn coloured.
The character belongs to Lynn, his name is Samir and he’s an original character from her work in progress comic & story Roots.
Be Thou My Vision - original print from The Worship Project.
This is one of my all-time favorite hymns. Written by Irish Christian poet Saint Dallan in the 6th century, it was later translated to English in 1912 to the tune that we know commonly today.
The lyrics have deeply impacted me over the years, and spurred me forward in my walk with Christ. A new imagining of this timeless hymn was recently released by Audrey Assad for her “Inheritance” record - which is flawless if you’re looking for a new worship album.
I want to leave you with the full lyrics of this beautiful hymn. My hope is that you’ll let these lyrics wash over you afresh - even if you can recite them in your sleep.
Holy Spirit, would you come and lead us, draw us back to you. Gently take us by the hand, wooing and calling us further and deeper into Your glorious presence. Be our vision; our complete 360-blueprint. We don’t want to take a single step without you.
“Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that thou art; Thou my best thought, by day or by night, Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.
Be thou my Wisdom, and thou my true Word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father, and I thy true son, Thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise; Thou mine inheritance, now and always; Thou and thou only, first in my heart, High King of heaven, my treasure thou art.
High King of heaven, my victory won, May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.”
Wanted to practice stippling so I doodled my favorite ghosties! I love these three so much. Cute little troublemakers ;w;
(Pen used is a Kuretake no. 55 double-ended brush pen, one of my absolute favorites)
