I came to digital art creation much later than ink. I enjoy drawing and painting directly with digital tools (this image was 'painted' in Photoshop). I also love the more blocky, flat styles you get with vector art.
Pen and INK
My first and most natural tool of expression is pen and ink drawing. I sketch the shape in pencil and then work up the detail directly in pen. I mostly use fineliner pens. My pen and ink drawings tend to be the larger pieces I do. This was drawn on an A2 cartridge paper sheet (420 594 mm).
I mainly use watercolours for capturing landscapes, often working outside, but also working from photos I have taken.
Largely self-taught, I have been drawing since I was very young, and have never really stopped. Early inspiration came from Edward Burne-Jones and Aubrey Beardsley, as well as the broader Arts & Craft movement. I mostly work in pen and ink and pencil, with some watercolour. I also do digital painting using Photoshop and vector art using Illustrator.
