So it’s been years since I’ve actually drawn in ink. But, yesterday I picked up a new set of pens and a new sketch pad, though I’d forgotten about the whole InkTober thing until today.
I know that I said I wanted to write out the story of Nefol, but then I decided to see what it would be like if I rough inked by hand and painted the outcomes frame by frame instead. So every day this month, I’m going to attempt to draw a frame from the Nefol story. If I like it, then I may continue it in a comic form. We’ll have to see how much time it takes!
The first frame is a young JinRai sitting at a campfire where he is responding to his father after a story. The top is the plain ink, the bottom is the quick paint version. Not too terrible for a first ink in many, many years. I could certainly use some practice to get a bit more line confidence and structure, though.
