This was done completely in ink. I thought I’d try using it solely in an illustration and see how it goes.
I’m using two aquabrushes/aquashes simultaneously; one filled with just water as normal, and the other one I’ve put in a mixture of the ink + water in. I like how much easier this makes gradating the shadow areas. And painting is less stressful on my part since I get harrowed so easily with the speed that it dries.
