White Phoenix inks

I don’t often post just my inks but I thought it would be interesting to do it for this piece. I used a brush on about half of this drawing, then switched to my standard #102 quill. After that, I went nuts and literally threw ink at the page. It looks pretty cool (to me, at least) and I thought the linework was worth posting for others to see. I’m going to color it digitally and post the finished piece in the next day or two (whenever I finish it).

Most importantly, I think I pretty much nailed the anatomy of Jean Grey in this image. I used a photo reference to get the torso correct and then moved around a few of the other pieces to better suit the pose. Overall, it’s better (and more accurate) than most of the other pieces I’ve done lately and I’m excited to keep plugging away at fixing some of the problems I’ve been having with my drawings.
