Figure Started in Putti Victorious DrawingJanuary 3, 2012
I have part of the figure to show here in the “Putti Victorious” ink drawing. This should give you an idea of what I’m trying to achieve. Click the thumbnail for a larger view.
One benefit to drawing in ink on a shellac primed surface is it allows me to fairly easily scratch away areas of ink. I spoke about this before in how to make your own scratchboard. It also helps me tidy up some of the lines. An example of this effect is the feathers that I scratched in behind the hand. I wanted the make it a bit more obvious that he had wings.
