Inky Starry Berliner

Inky Starry Berliner - student project

Here are some photos of my inky journey :)
I started with black and white warm-up exercises and moved to the silhouettes right away.

It was almost impossible to stop since I discovered that lettering is a great practice for inks.
So it took me two days (evenings actually - after my working projects) instead of one.

I was happy to fill new pages in the watercolor sketchbook.

Then I tried my favourite colored acrylic inks ...

The digital part was challenging since it was a specific project. I was thinking about the character's personality a lot during the whole process. Tried different versions of contrasts and shadings. I'm happy with a final result and the challenge always brings satisfaction!
