I decided to try out my Inktense pencils on some dragons. I had the line art from previous colouring attempts at these designs, so I just transferred it onto the paper and inked the outlines. There are 4 different designs, all supposed to look like they are trapped in the art card. I thought that they could be matted together in one long frame in the order of the colours of the rainbow. Like ROYGBIV. (red,orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet), because each dragon has a main body colour that would go in that order.
Anyone else have any other way to remember the order colours go in a rainbow??
I really like this paper. The ink flowed smoothly over the surface and didn't bleed through the other side. The Inktense pencils also laid down very smoothly and were easy to blend. It does also work very well with watercolour pencils and normal watercolours.
This is the pencils laid down before I added water. I like the light green colour as it is without having been watered down. But since this is an experiment to see how the pencils work I need to add water to it. So come back tomorrow to see the final outcome and the other 4 designs. :) If anyone has any questions about the Inktense pencils, please ask.
And having inked these designs reminded me of how much I enjoy it. :)
