Week 2. First and second attempts at comic style inking. These are 8x10s. I started with a blue pastel sketch of my facehead, then did the inking with design markers on tracing paper, laid over the sketch. The first one (seen below, with crosshatching and parallel lines) took me a little over 3 hours. The second one (seen at the top, with pointillism and some other new technique I’m calling ‘squarism’), took me about 5 hours. 

pointillism (pointl-izem): n. the gateway to controlled madness.
