Tall Skies by Nambroth Tall Skies by Nambroth
Part of a trade for :icongryphoness203:

"Blond" gryphons are one of my favorite colorations to use... I'm sure you'll see more of this color scheme!

Ink and watercolor on 9" x 6" cold press.

I have to ask. Do you use a brush, or regular microns for the inking? The thickness varies so much and so neatly I thought it was a brush, but then you also have these nice bold, smooth lines I associate with microns. So is it a brush, or pen? Or both? Brush pens? Such a mystery...:sherlock:

I, embarrassingly, have never inked with a brush (I lack the materials to do so), and so these are all felt-tipped art pens that I do my inking with!

Really? Its great fun if you have a fine brush(I got mine from Hobby Lobby on sale) and don't mind dipping it in the ink pot every little bit. I have two picture I inked that way ([link] [link]) and the result looks fairly similar to your inking style, so I thought maybe that was how you got the flowing bold lines and fine details.

Those are some pretty wicked pen skills. I suddenly feel the need to go play with my microns. It's been a while. I'm probably rusty, lol.

I love this style, by the way. It's one of my favorites. :D

How lovely! Yes, brush inking can be a lot more expressive. It would probably save me time in doing so, rather than going back over my own lines many times to achieve different line weights! I hope to play with this someday. The problem with having so many different artistic pursuits is that I have such limited time to mess with each....
