I love the hooded figures and ominous sky on this.
Is it a reference to the cryptid?

Hi Laury thanks and yes it is!

I've been doing a bunch of crytptozoology posts on my other blog them on my other blog. I'm going to use a couple of images as part of a found notebook in a two page Happy Undertaker story.
the others are here

Awesome!
I love cryptozoology and any pictures or impressions are always a great sight :)

Can I perhaps ask what kind of pens you use?
Your images always look so neat and fine.

I'm doing them as a morning warm up so I give I myself a time limit..I have about 30 i want to do but we'll see how far I get:-)

since its in the sketchbook I grab any pen handy that isn't' dry:-) For a larger piece I would use a dip crow quill but these are all done with Prismicolor fine, those beige microns or a fine line sharpie .. all no larger then a 1 maybe 2. Usual stuff... there's a fountain pen i use that I really like but ints not waterproof and none of these are done with it.

On the link to the other images theres a picture with the stuff I used on it.

Laury Coenen said...

Ah right, thank you for explaining :)
I feel sometimes my smallest pen (0.1 mm) is still too large to do the finer details I'm so used to easily do with pencil.
I think it's time to invest in some more!

And indeed, please continue the morning warm ups (and all the rest), they're lovely!

this paper is quite heavy and more toothy then smooth.. so a really fine pen unless its brand new gets beaten up quick even tho the pen I use is fine not the fines if it was a really smooth paper.
