"Elbereth, Gilthoniel" for Day 8 of Inktober: Star using references from SenshiStock and this post from :iconredditgetsdrawn: user butternotbutterflies. This is 8.5x11" I would need a paper 4 times that size to complete the whole post, but someday maybe I'll do a large painting on canvas... the white is a combination of Bombay white india ink applied with a brush and a Marvy "Reminisce" gel pen, hatching with Pigma Micron pens. The black background is a combination of Pigma brush pen which was running out of ink that I subsequently dipped into Bombay black india ink for finish it. Still some streaking remained, so I increased the contrast in my scan. Drawn on Strathmore Toned Gray paper.

The use of white for accentuating is gorgeous here. Such a wonderful harmony in this work.
