The initial drawing and line work was done using a Parker fountain pen (see video).
My favourite property of this pen’s ink is its reaction to water.
With an aqua brush, I used the water to let the lines bleed slightly and paint in some tone and details.
Moving to digital, I scanned in the page from my Moleskine journal (providing the background yellowish colour), then cropped and coloured the image using a complimentary red, set to multiply and drawn in with a wacom tablet and pen.
Finally, resizing the artwork for download as desktop and phone wallpapers.
