Ink Drawing Illustrations : Ink Drawing Line Continuation


Hi I’m Seth Maxomalus and I’m an artist and
an illustrator. Longer lines are harder to do because most drawings especially what I
am doing with a brush are like little strokes connected to each other and connected to each
other but like long curves you are running out of ink on a pull and you’ll need to pick
up where you last left off. For example I will do his cheek and it will probably stop
part way into it and I went that far but that line actually needs to connect to here but
I stopped there and pulled off because for one re-inking and re-filling the brush whenever
I am pulling this through the ink and turning it, pointing it, put the brush where I last
left it and this is where you kind of aim a little bit, put the brush at that last line
and continue with your line and pull. Now this is also where the optical illusion thing
kicks in like even if you miss the line it doesn’t matter because essentially what you
are doing is when you are drawing or inking something in you are pretty much creating
an illusion of form and shape and your brain fills in what is missing. Like I am not drawing
every single like whisker or mole or iota on here but I am giving the illusion that
it exists. Like with hair I won’t be drawing every single strand but back to the line continuing
one straight line, stopping and then with the brush inking it and see I am finishing
this ear here. It is not like I did the ear in one stroke, I am putting the brush back
on and pulling it in.
