Inking, inking!!!

Inking, inking!!! - student project


I'm Nuria Otte. I'm an Illustrator, Printmaker and Tshirt designer. I've always loved the black and white on drawings. Thanks to Yuko and her course, I'm brave enough to try inking techniques and start new challenges.

If you want to follow my adventure,you can find me on Twitter/Instagram: @nuriaotte or Facebook (Nuria Otte Illustration).

I find really difficult to draw hair, and animal hair is really tricky. This was made from a photo using a watercolour brush. It took me around 8 hours to finish it. I've used a razor blade to scrape off the ink from the end of very thin hairs and whiskers.The best advice is not to overwork the sketch, as Yuko says on her video and the result will be less rigid.

I'm afraid on this picture the small details can't be seen. I've enjoyed a lot inking. It's very relaxing.
