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. 🙂
– 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!
A short video of the work-in-progress.
And a couple of close-up photos.
I hope you like the drawing. Thank you for looking! 🙂
