Here is another of my pen and ink drawings with coloured pencil background.
I was supposed to be concentrating on pen and ink drawings of horses, but I had already started on this drawing of a tiger and I couldn't resist finishing it.
I am still learning how to do pen and inks in the 6 x 4 inch format. I have probably got too much colour in the background here.
I use an eraser to soften the pen marks. It can make them lighter and/or thinner and makes the drawing more subtle. Here I let the drawing dry too long and I couldn't delete the excess ink.
I know I am telling you all too much about what is wrong with this drawing. I should pretend that it is exactly how I planned. But that is not my character.
The original does look much better than this scan. Scans exaggerate the black pen marks.
