Ink



(I'm kind of cheating, but since the Purple Dodo just LOVE Tea, I'm linking this old post to Illustration Friday, please forgive me!)

Well, not so common, but not for that less enjoyable, is just inking all style.
Here the Purple Dodo, the principal character of a series of storys, long and short, of my creation. Here I was testing a technique, I was planning to do all the illustrations for this future book in an "old" style, like the medioeval engravings, but not really. So I inked this drawing to see what I can manage to do with inks and art pens.
I kind of like this.
