Playing with ink

I got to draw again! I'm not really done with it yet since I only give myself 2 hours to draw these days because I've been quite busy ;-; I've been itching to draw since yesterday. And today I just couldn't help myself. I decided to post this sooner then sleep before a certain someone catches me still awake ;-;

So here goes!

For this random sketch, I decided to make a fanart of alastor from hazbin hotel. I loved the pilot episode but it's sad that the animation was never continued

While my mom was cleaning up, she found my old bottle of calligraphy ink on the shelves so I thought to play with it for a bit. It was surprising to see that it didn't dry up too

Working with ink is actually just a series of adding it drop by drop. Way different from watercolor where you can easily mix the water to paint ratio but same concept on application, lightest shade first

I was... in a rush to maximize the 2 hours I gave myself to draw.. so I couldn't take photos bit by bit. And I don't think I can provide much guides here because, in the end, it's based on my imagination (like what @heartbeat1515 wanted to see somehow) since it's a fan art. (Ignore my bears, they watch over me while I thesis :"D)

Then I penned alastor in. I am way too sleepy to fix my proportions so I just went with whatever. I'm not really done with the shading but my pen ran out of ink so I'll need to get a new red one tomorrow ;-;

I found a gel pen in my pencil case, actually and I used that to give alastor's shadow (inner demon tbh) an ominous glow/aura that would match the darkening ink layers but since my 2 hours are up. I will continue this tomorrow and upload the finished piece in the fanart corner community :")

Wow! You haven't used ink since hs but you can still make something cool like that. Your hands sure can remember how. Ink sure is very difficult to control

It's not really hard? It's just like with water color, only, it dries faster and the color is way too solid so it's almost impossible to blend

Cool! I know using ink is a bit harder than other medium, right? You need to be very cautious in applying as well as the control in volume of the ink because one wrong move will ruin the drawing. Good for you, you were able to use it neatly 😊😊😊

Very ;-; that's why i only add ink in drop by drop, same with how I play with gel pens since i didn't have colored inks anymore. Those were the ones that dried up ;-;

I don't think hard work alone is enough to be that good. You need a talent to work on and hard work to evolve. Well at least that's my opinion.

Not really? I know a lot of artists from my old artist groups who sucked when they first joined but they got better when they learned the technicalities of each medium and the basics

I can't argue about arts because i really suck with that. So i will just go with your point haha

She made me laugh out loud. Thank you @hanzell and I do not need a lot of drawing tips for the community as long as there is one. You already gave me the important one. If you gave me ink for the drawing will use it like watercolour, can you imagine how my drawing would look like? 😅😅 that is the main reason emphasize on giving tips in the community.

See your imagination is not bad. Maybe I can expect a drawing of me next? 🥰

Oof why laugh? :"" I tried using ink like watercolors when i first tried it out. It was so messy so i stopped using it for a while. I only tried it again when i met people who knew how to use it and based off there

I laughed because I am happy that you took the challenge to draw from your imagination only. You did not use picture for guidelines, and your drawing still looks amazing as always.

You don't need luck actually. You just need a little bit of passion. Try thinking about it this way, "Of I finish this quick, I will have my freedom sooner".
