I am developing work in a style where I draw with a dip pen nib and then shade using a wash of ink. I also plan to use watercolor. In the past I have created very little work which could be considered illustration, and even less with humans as a subject. I haven't drawn horses in more than 10 years. As a result, I am still learning a great deal from each piece I create, and I see a lot of things in this drawing which can be improved. I would greatly appreciate any feedback about things you see, as I am sure for every item I do see there is at least one that I do not yet see.
The drawing is an illustration created for the Airship Pirates RPG, a steampunk tabletop RPG set in a post-apocalyptic future. The woman is a tribal neo-bedouin warrior, scouting through the deserts of Southwest North America.
It is dark brown shellac-based ink, drawn with a dip pen and then shaded with a wash using a round brush.
It is on 8.5"x11" watercolor paper.
I used free stock images for reference.
Thank you for any feedback.
The day we stop learning about art is the day we stop making art.
