Project Description

Create your own ink drawing using texture

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to create your own ink drawing from start to finish. Use my favorite techniques and materials you will find a subject and illustrate it with 6 different textures in your ink drawing. I have many unconventional ways of creating unique textures, so be sure to get creative when making your own.

DELIVERABLE

Share an ink drawing. A complete drawing will include at least 6 different textures.

Note: It would be great to track your progress in the project gallery, feel free to share photos of your work from start to finish!
