Penguins! - student project

Hi Yasmina,

thanks again for the free link (I found it on Insta)! Love your classes and your encouragement! 

I tried a what I thought simple image, but it turns out black and white shading is kinda hard, LOL!

Here are some process pics. The reference image is page 96 from "The simple truth about love" by Bradley Trevor Greive. I'd love to hear your thoughts on how to use ink in images like this one for penguins, who have black and white feathers, but then the sunlight hits them in different ways... I tried different pressure with the pencil sketch, but how can I make them look shiny in ink?

Thank you for any tips! :-)
