I got that big A* ink illustration I've been threatening to do done finally! So it is up for auction on eBay right now and I hope you will check it out but here's a preview just in case:

Image

It's 10"x14" and I inked it with a "size 0" brush, which is way tinier than the size 4 brush I've been used to using for ink work—the smaller brush helped me do all the thin little lines there, especially the longer, sinuous ones; I'd been pretty worried that I just wouldn't be able to pull those off in ink—I've never really inked anything like them before—but I was surprised to find myself unconsciously falling into doing them with a series of medium-length strokes, just kind of carefully going along them bit by bit. It was actually a lot of fun, if a little nerve/hand-muscle-wracking.

So I hope everyone bids on it and then I will be pumped up to do more and also able to pay some rent and buy some groceries! (Mmm, groceries : d) I'm hoping this will be kind of a little I dunno pin-up series or whatever I guess, so I optimistically labelled this one #1. : D At most I'll only be able to manage one or maaaaaybe two a month, though, so they're always gonna be LQQK R@R3 and all that. : p Anyway yeah, ink! It's kind of been a while (but this one actually went waaaay better than I'd expected—didn't even hafta use any white ink to cover up boo-boos! : o).

(By the way, if you missed it in an earlier article, you can see what the original pencil sketch looked like right here.)

Selenis takes some time to read a few web-comics.

This and your latest page are really well composed. Great contrast between the soft colors and rough lines.
