I’ve been really into Japanese woodblock prints and tattoos lately, so I wanted to play around with some flash-type drawings. This is the result; first attempt at Japanese style & spit-shading.
PAPER: Srathmore Watercolor Paper: Cold Press 140lb
PENCILS: Prismacolor (Light Cerulean Blue #PC904), Staedtler Mars Techno (Engineering Pencil)
ERASER: Staedler Mars Plastic
PENS: Staedtker Pigment Liner Pens (#0.1, #0.5)
INK: Speedball Super Pigment Acrylic (Primrose Yellow, Scarlet Red)
BRUSHES: Simply Simmons (Round #0, Filbert #8)
I chose these materials specifically because they’re all acid free, waterproof, light fast, and archival.
