I’ve always loved Hitchcock movies.
I am enjoying your drawings Rubin. What materials are you using? I loke the colors in the face of this one.
For moleskine standard paper, I lay down a base with tombow dual tip markers because I can do two or three layers without bleeding thru. On top of the tombow brush strokes, I put down a light grey prisma color. On top of that I do my highlights with pro-white.
Thanks for the explanation. I am not familiar with pro-white, is it a type of pencil, ink, paint…?
It is a white touch-up water color that is thick and applies bright white. I tried higgins white ink but it required multiple applications to get up to white. Pro white is used for highlights and to cover up ink mistakes because of how well it applies. I am never without a jar or two.
I am also curious what is it? Can you, please, post a link? I bought Kamei white ink for manga and a bit frustrated because its bubbling with dip pen and I don’t know which marker or other pen I can fill it with. I want it to be portable, can’t run around with bottle. Do you use it with brush?
Thanks again for the info Rubin.
Thats the stuff. I buy it from Dick Blick. It seems his supplies are half the price of everywhere else.
It is thick stuff, but you can water it down quite a bit before it becomes terribly translucent.
I use it with a brush. I would love to know what you use tho, your drawings make my brain melt!
Thank you very much, Rubin Pingk. I read that people leave Pro-White open, so it dries like cake and use it with wet brush.(Interesting, because it makes possible to carry it). I draw first with all that antique pencils I am obsessed about, I like to mix my own ink, I like earthy colors. I use Kuretake pens, Twin, Brushables, Clean Color, water brushes- Kuretake kindly sent me to play with. I try to draw everything the way it is. Van Gogh said he draws the truth he sees. I like it. Like most of us I am crazy about art tools and get everything I can – to try from house paint cans, venetian knives to Japanese pens from JetPens.
Rubin, what is the dry time on the pro-white?
Pro white dries super fast. I often have to re-wet the dab I put in my paint tray.
I got Zig Opaque Writer (white) from Kuretake, but somehow it doesn’t work smooth enough, may be we r not compatible. You gotta shake it first, than press, than it leaks and not consistent. Same with gold Zig which I use for walls sometimes. So I stick with gel pen and my new fat Woody 3-in-1 Stabilo pencil.
