Here is my warm up sketch for the day, some sort of Viking-esq guy (with a few hastily drawn ravens for good measure) Hi-res is available for download if anyone wants to take a crack at it for some inking or colouring practice!
Your lines are awesome - I was curious what your process is like. Is it just pen and paper, or is this digital? I am a total newb myself, so I'm trying to get a feel for how guys like you work. I'm guessing it's mostly just practice, haha. Long road ahead of me...
Thanks for the compliments! I use an #F pencil, as I feel that gives me nice line-darkness and smoothness without getting overly smudgy. I do know a lot of people do digital, but I really like drawing on paper, so I don't think I'll personally make the switch any time soon.
And yeah, I draw a ton, its the only way to get better, I have good days and bad days but it's important to just keep at it. A lot of times, improvements will happen in little bursts. It's great when that happens!
