Pen and a little pencil with some white gel pen.
Soon to be colored (maybe), I love black and white because things don’t need color.
I spent a long time on the sky, (Tedious, but a lot of fun for me.) l worked it left to right, slowly with my micron pen, and the stars were only dots until I moved eastward. I started to draw in the stars because those dots were not doing it for me. When I was done, I went back to the area by the moon and used my white gel pen to add some shape to the dots.
One would ask, why I don’t just do all the stars with white gel pen?
Because there is a difference between round vs sharp and deliberate vs happy accident. (I love happy accidents) (Also, I hold myself to a standard, and if I use the white gel pen too often, I’ll feel like I cheated…)
