Well, I’ve been experimenting more with color. Working with color is more time intensive and far less easy to cover up if you blend the wrong colors for a particular effect. So far things are going okay but I’m on the fence. I admit, I’m a bit nervous about making color a permanent stay in my style. Past attempts haven’t faired too well for my liking and I can’t really tell if I’ve made any progress over the years. Below are two past attempts at color. What do you think?
Here’s a time lapse video of me inking one of my ACEO drawings titled “Phree”. It’s just over a minute long but in reality it was five straight hours of stippling. In the world of stippling that’s really not a long time since larger pieces can take up to more than 36 hours. But to a hiny on a bench with no cushion, it felt like eternity.
