Super Beast WIP by manic-in-tricolour Super Beast WIP by manic-in-tricolour
Something I have been working on off-and-on since Friday. It's been a very long time (a few years, even) since I last worked in mircon, and I have forgotten how work-intensive they are. This already has quite a few hours invested in it, despite it being a very small drawing, only 7"x8".

Unlike ballpoint which responds to pressure, sketching and improvising with mircon is incredibly difficult. It's a very unforgiving tool. There is pencil underneath the ink, but it's very light, messy, and not very useful. I only sketched out some vague placements of important or confusing elements in the image - the rest is all ink.

Lighting practice.

WOW!! you can really see the effort gone into this piece, the weird defomed boned legs are the best part in my opinion, along with that killer cross hatching :+fav:

Thank you very much! It's been quite the battle, I'm hoping to have this done soon, it's devouring my ink like it's going out of style.
