Orochi WIP by Ahkward Orochi WIP by Ahkward
Sorry for the photo, my scanner is already packed and my car is sold. e___e I don't want to ride for 2 hours just to go to the school to get a scan of it. Since pretty much everything is packed, I have my sketchbooks only to draw in. I've been working on this Orochi fanart (from Okami).

22x17 in
Ink brush pen
moleskine sketchbook

Ahh it's beautiful so far! I always find it amazing how well you can detail the picture in ink, rather than just line art it!
*secretly tries to find money to commission you*

YES!
I'll definitely be ready to commission you by then! :D Can't wait!! (Although technically I have enough for an ink wash, but I want to work toward that colored ink wash we talked about before :D)

Yes, I was very surprised to not see much of it on dA. I am definitely trying hard to mimic the original style of the game. hehe Idk if I can mimic the coloring though. e____e coloring isn't the best thing for me.

ahh, yes. i would love to try the sumi-e, but i never know where the line thinknesses go! o:
coloring isn't my strength either, but i'm sure you'll do it decent! (:

There really isn't a set of rules persay. Sumi-e is mostly about showing life and motion in the painting. It's all about how you want to show it. Do you want serenity? Or strength? What about motion and grace? IT really depends. XD

Art block! ono Usually I fight art block by drawing fanart or something totally new that I've never drawn before. That way if it doesn't come out the way I want, it's ok, because it is the first time I tried something. XD

I'm suuuper jealous of your inking. May I ask what you use to do it? I use something similar to India Ink and never seem to get good lines.

Ahkward Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
I sometimes use a normal brush and india ink sometimes I use a brush pen, it really depends on my mood. For this drawing, I'm using a brush pen made by pentel

www.dickblick.com/products/pen…

They have cartridges and are my favorite brush pen out of everything I have tried so far. IMO of course. I've been using ink about 3 years now on a consistent basis and so I've had lots of practice. e___e It helps when your teachers are comic artists and cartoonists. XD

Yes, so slowly. XD I've been so busy packing I haven't had a lot of time. I got a lot done yesterday though so I felt it was ok to sit down and draw without feeling guilty.

 Ahh it's so annoying when you have stuff to do but all you wanna do is draw. The teachers at my school pile homework on us in the summer holidays, but often I just put it off. I'm like "Nah, it's summer, I want to hardcore draw" XD
