In lieu of doing something valid for black and white, I did studies for my 12 monkeys dvd cover. Why is it that I work best at 3-4 in the morning? These were referenced for once, but the final won't be, because sadly... I do not have a monkey to photograph screaming angrily at me. I just couldn't bring myself to start on the final. It's been too long since I feel like I actually worked with ink still, and I want this sucker to turn out decent. Not to say I hate these. I am immensely happy with how these went.
Oh and the red, on the what I like to call "monkey made of nightmares and sadness", is acrylic ink. Bought my first bottle after a small adventure out to dick blick. I see a beautiful relationship forming between me and acrylic ink. Ink that can build up into brighter colors? Yes. Please. And boy, is it ever vibrant when put on straight.
