What are the red lines? does it erase out after you are done, or what?

The "red lines" are pink ink. They'll be gone as I overlay details.

I draw my base "skeleton" in light colored ink (in this case, pink). When I overlay the black ink, it 'disappears.' All drawn by hand!

I usually draw my base in pencil and then develop from there, erasing later. I haven't drawn in so long that I decided to give myself "no choices" and draw in ink. (I'm very fussy about anatomy.)

As a friend said:

Quote:
Paige: I like pens better simply because it forces you to learn to "cope" with mistakes. You learn the art of being able to cover up something you can't erase. Not only that but you learn better how to balance out the pressure you put on your drawing utensil. Marker work is the same. I've learned how to blend better and have a smoother finished product. None of what I put on paper can be erased. I HAVE to learn to make it work.
Paige and I have been friends for almost a decade now. She's watched me develop and we've been each others' "harsh critic" throughout the years. And for giggles, a throw-back:


Circa 2008




Circa 2007
(Just starting to play with a teeny bit if 'realism')




Circa 2006

"Scarred" wolf character

2005 and back...

(Using an 'alias' a lot)

You know I stumbled across your DA randomly I think a few weeks ago. I just LOVE your work and am super jealous of your fur work. You make your furry creatures look so simple to draw. It looks so basic and yet I can't even get close. =P

Love the idea quote, if only I could be so brave. xD


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

It took me a while Lol If you look back at the "old stuff," you can see it all used to be pretty contrived. It's like riding... You have to learn how to be tense (so you don't sit like a wet noodle & slip off) but loose, so you don't pinch/over-ask.

Got a few more to add. You guys can always creep up at Missile Sweet Studio and watch my sketchbook, WIPs, and more.
