I am a web designer, flash developer and illustrator. I live in Bendigo with my lovely wife Cheryl and out little kids Oscar and Lily and...

Ink

I’ve been playing with watercolours for quite some time now. I’ve learned a lot, which I hope comparing my first one to my most recent one will attest.

I’m still enjoying that, but I’d like to try something new. The next thing I’d like to look at is ink.. specifically ink washes and the like.

Anyone have any advice for what brands or types of ink I should look at.. and any techniques to try out? Does it work like watercolour, with gradually building up shadows and using the white of the paper for highlights? Are textures defined by the roughness of the paper? Can you draw over the top of the ink, or is it like watercolours where light pencils wont show up? Anything else you might care to share?

Thanks everyone :)

Oh, as a P.S. that Ghost Rider watercolour is being auctioned off, with all the funds going to support one of the creators of Ghost Rider through his financial difficulties. Right now it’s only $20 so you can definitely get it for cheap :)
