Hey everyone, here's my version from this weeks reference. One of the main things I want to do with these forthcoming pieces is to experiment with some techniques I don't normally use. For this one I used ink and brush, then ink wash, ink splatter with a toothbrush, and then finished up by adding some details to the hair with a fine point Pitt pen. I've been wanting to try some of the splatter effects with ink and white paint for a while...This is literally the first time I've tried it and I really like the look! Definitely adds some spontaneity and energy that isn't possible with any other method that I know of. Anyway, this was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to doing it again tomorrow!
