small ambiguous comic noodle, about 3” wide

Some smallish sketchbook watercolour studies! The odd brownish clumps in the first image are what gold ink looks like scanned. Normally I take photos when I use gold ink, but I didn’t really feel up to it today.

I don’t know if the 100% meme is still going around, but I got a question about what resolution I usually work at/how big my files are for digital illustration, and the answer is, fucking ridiculous resolutions. These are some 800x500 px, 100% resolution crops of recent work that is either digital or has enough digital finishing done that I can’t call it traditional. I also captioned each image with the pixel dimensions of the images the crops are from, but let it be known that the smallest image was originally 2000x2000 px.

Of the work that started in traditional media, the largest piece was roughly 6x8”. I scan everything in at 600 dpi (which turns into a 3600x4800 canvas, if you’re too lazy to work it out, except for the deer - for stuff with gold ink, I take photos, but it works out about the same) so that I have some paper texture to work with. They are so huge that you can see little blooms along the edges of lines where the ink bled into the paper.

gold ink+light digital colours experiments

I’ve been experimenting with bees and gold ink! Also my scanner crapped out, which is just as well because the ink looks better photographed than scanned.
