I decided to do an ink drawing and I had no idea of what, so this ended up being of a kind of steam-punk castle thing. As it evolved, I realised it needed zeppelins, so I added them in. I did this while watching the last few episodes of series five Face Off – I’ve been a big addict of that show for all five seasons. The person I wanted to win this round, won – they totally deserved it.
Anyway, I like to do a pen drawing every now and then. This was done on watercolour paper (it’s nice and thick to use), using an art felt tipped pen of 1mm wide, I like the fine-ness of them and I tend to go through them pretty quickly. I did a very rough sketch in first with pencil and added the detail as i got to it. My hand was really over doing this much fine detail by the end.
