This was drawn with a Pilot Falcon SEF using Platinum Carbon Black ink and colored with Holbein watercolors in a Canson Mix Media spiral sketchbook.
I upgraded from iPhone to Android recently and I don't think I'll ever go back to Apple. The phones just got too expensive for my needs, although I do miss the higher quality camera from my iPhone.
My new phone is the Moto G7 which I got, unlocked, for just $250. It does everything I need to do, and the OS is way more user friendly than iOS... so I'm really happy. And at the lower price I can get a new phone more often.
"Say hello to these rabbits & they'll say hello right back,
Just don't offer them carrot flavored jello as a snack.
'Cause it's more than they can stand, and they're likely to attack,
And when a rabbit bites your hand then you'll have to bite it back!"
I drew these rabbits with a new pen - Pilot Custom Heritage 912 SF. It's another favorite: perfect size & weight, and its nib is a true pleasure to write and draw with. Another favorite, for sure.
He sits up in his teacup with his hands wrapped 'round a porg,
Thinking up new ways to join forces with the Borg.
To eradicate the Rebels by infecting them with spores,
And assimilate the hive mind to become one with the Force.
Rebelle is really good for digital watercolor. You know how when you work in digital there tends to be harsh edges, and you have to sort of manage that? In Rebelle, the watercolor sort of "soaks into the paper" and you just don't have to think about it much. You can kind of work in it the same way you would with real color and end up with similar results.
The series continues:
Dropping bombs on people's moms...
All because he's mad that his own mom named him "Tom."
He overreacted but there's more to explain, though-
Keep in mind the fact that his last name is "Aito."
This is all digital. Photoshop. I miss my pens, but time is of the essence at the moment...
"You think your car's cool? Well mine is better than yours.
My car is so fly it doesn't even have doors.
You can't show ME up - the girlies know what's up,
When they see me roll up in my Speedy Teacup."
I hit a breakthrough with this one. This is all digital. I'm simulating the opacity that certain colors have -- an opacity that blocks out the line work.
Drawn and colored in Photoshop.
Happy people in my life.
Precisely just what they look like.
They smile big and some wear hats.
They hatched from eggs all laid by cats.
I drew these guys with a Duke 551 Confucius fountain pen. It has a fude nib with 3 tines. That nib allows for really interesting line variation and it's a whole lot of fun to draw with.
