I had an inspiration last week, while looking for more drawing pens at Michaels (arts and crafts store).
I saw black drawing paper … ideas came to mind … so I picked it up and went looking for white ink pens. I found them over at the scrapbooks section, and bought two different types/brands. One was a Manger opaque white, and the other the Sakura Gelli pen. Here’s what I came up with:
I started to fill in the spaces with the white, but didn’t like the effect. I’m leaving this as it is – I’ll probably do another version later. It’s harder to cover up mistakes with white pens, I find. It doesn’t translate to the same shading effect as when I am using black ink.
Also, I didn’t like working with the opaque white pens – as you can see, blobs of ink would come out, or else there was no ink coming out, and then I would have to retrace the lines. The Sakura Gelli pen works so much better for me. I’ll have to look for more of those … do they come in different point sizes? hmmm …
