Guess most of you know
William the lurcher!
I have just done a short video
of how I go about sketching him.
Thought I would share it with you here.
Most times I pencil in the sketch first, but sometimes (as now) I just go straight in with Ink. Using my Sailor Calligraphy pen (I bought it here) took a bit of getting used to, but was worth the effort...I love using it - plus the ink is just the right colour for William. Some inks are too blue or yellow - i.e. with Quink, as it is made up of those colours. The Sailor cartridge ink is great though.
When it dried I added his collar, but did nothing else to it.
As you see, where the ink had got away from me in the video,
it actually worked for me in the end and it looks as
if William has a stroppy expression ....as if!
