Rooster

22 May

Surprise!  I’ve been keeping this pen and ink drawing to myself, and now that it’s complete, it is time to share it here.

Whether it’s my farm girl roots or a coincidence, I seem to draw a lot of farm animals.  I love the legacy of farming, and the animals that go along with it are a big reason for that.  Plus, bonus, people seem to love farm animals, be it a horse, cow, pig, goat, dog, cat, duck, or chicken.  Thus, my rooster was a long time coming. 🙂

Rooster

– This drawing measures 5×7 inches, and is drawn on Strathmore 500 series Bristol Plate paper.

– Drawn with Sakura Pigma Micron pens, ranging in size from 005 (primarily), 01, and a tiny touch of 03 for those inky blacks.  When I first used Sakura Pigma Micron pens, I felt they were very inky and a little out-of-control feeling.  However, the rich, warm blacks they produce are unsurpassed by any pen I’ve tried so far, and I have a fair collection of different brands of pens.  These are great!
