details of an ink horse drawing

This drawing is part of a series with animals created using colored pens and India ink (permanent and really dark). There were no sketches, only the brush and the ink to make the shapes.

Using a brush allowed me to create diverse line’s thickness, which brought some life to the drawing.

Then, I colored with only three markers (prismacolor and magic color). I id not buy many of those markers because I wanted to test them before making a bigger investment (it is really expensive to have a set of prismacolor or other international brand here in Brazil). I made shadows with purple and the background with green and gray 10%. That gray percentage is great for shadows.

Below you can see more pictures with drawings from this series. 😉
