This was how my #Inktober began: With a tree warmup.
So I saw this cool gif* on Twitter of an artist using stippling to draw a tree. It was amazing how alive that tree looked with just black ink. I decided to try it. . . and it was just going to be a warmup, right?
Cut to: Four days later, when I finally finished that darn tree.
I don’t think I want to stipple anything ever again. . . .
(Now watch as I fall in love with the effect of stippling, and decide that I will do a whole comic in this art style. Haha.)
The trunk looked a little bare when it was one, so I decided to a little shading with my new Tombow markers. They’re so much fun. ❤️
*Couldn’t find it again, sorry! I’ll link it when I do.
