Sketch of Inna. I used ArtPen Rotring, filled ink converter with J.Herbin ink. May be I should try to color it in Photoshop?
Lovely work, Nikira. Do you have details of this type of ink? I always find, when I load up my Rotring pens with coloured inks they clog up.
Beautiful, direct, spontanteous. I really admire people who can draw this way. Have fun coloring it in Photoshop, but I sort of feel that it cheapens the result (and it’s what I do for a living!).
Bob, why don’t you use Rotring coloured ink? It shouldn’t clog!
Nikira, by all means colour it in Photoshop, but only if you have Bijou toolbar available there…
However I tend to agree with Bjax about cheapening the result, but there’s no harm in it since original in the Moly remains the same!
I’d like to see the results both ways, in Photoshop and with the Bijou. But it’s also a lovely portrait of a lovely young woman just as it is.
@Bob, it is my first time I used converter, I always used cartridges with ArtPen. I love browns, sepia ink. Which one is safe for Rotring?
@Ziza, never saw Rotring bottle of ink.
@bjax, please, can you give me quick advise how to color in photoshop, just a schema?
Nikira… wonderful spontaneous feel to the drawing, agree with Bjax. And thank you Bob and Ziza… now I need to look up Bijou and Rotring. Please post the psd version , if you do it.
Look into forums,I started new topic about Art materials, i’ll post more info after I come back.
very briefly, make a new layer with blending set to darken. This protects the original scan. Beg borrow or steal the use of a Wacom tablet. Play with the different brushes and get into the options of the brush palette for different effects… just have fun and experiment!
Thank you Bjax. I got the Wacom and even Painter 11. tried to add some color yesterday. look http://nikiraart.blogspot.com/2009/11/scarfgreen.html
I have hard time to blend. I used opacity to make it softer. Palette of colors is stiff and too plain compare to real palette.
