As far as traditional mediums go, I’ve always been rubbish with a brush. That being said, I think I found love in dip pens and drawing ink. This one was done for a musical side project of mine called LunaRift, and the drawing was used on album artwork as well as a poster.

I sketched this rabbit earlier today trying out something called Mineral Paper by Yasutomo, which claims “made from rocks, not trees!” The paper is heavy and super smooth, and I’ve been trying different media on it.

Drawing with a dip pen was interesting, the nib glided across it and it felt surprisingly gentle with the tines of the nib, but I couldn’t get much like variation without digging into the paper. Also, the ink didn’t dry as fast as it would on Bristol, and it smudged a few times (which I was very careful about)

Not sure I would recommend this paper, but it is certainly interesting and I’m going to try a few more techniques with it!

ZELO!!! I finally drew all of them but im probably gonna do some more YongGuks idk #fanart #fan #kpop #kpopfanart #kpopfan #anime #animefan #animefanart #illustration #linework #drawing #pencil #pen #art #artwork #design #portrait #lines #lineart #blackandgray #korea #korean #bap #choijunhong #junhong #zelo #bapzelo #최준홍 #bapbabyz #babyz


I neglected this for the past 4 weeks (what it looked like then) so decided to put some time on it today. And after about 4h I think the ink stage is almost done, I need to decide on the contour (faint outline of circle in pencil). And, yes I’m building/creating as I go.

Note the two dragon open/close mouth opposition is loosely based of the guardian statue in Japanese temples.

I’m not sure I can salvage the ink smear, but I want to finish it anyway (finished not perfect). On the upside it’s removing a small amount of pressure from fear of messing up :P. I’ll get this shield design done.
