I am taking a break from ink, after InkTober. I went for broke yesterday and bought myself two 4B pencils. I remember when I first started to draw, these things scared the daylights out of me. You could make a mark and it showed up. What if it was the wrong mark? What if someone could see it? I am now embracing the hairy black mark and adding color to it.
This started out as a quick doodle done over lunch at Panera. I scanned it and began to experimenting at adding digital color. It was fun, but in all honestly, color in the physical world is just a lot faster. Maybe if I had a teacher… So here is digital pencil sketch #1 with color.
