Here's a sketch of Revan I did recently. It's fun to play around with markers and pens every so often since all the work I do on KOTOR is in pencil. The black ink creates such great shapes and strong contrast. I get such a clear idea right away whether or not the drawing is working out okay too, plus it's a lot of fun to spread white-out all over the place. :)

I'm a big fan of this blog.
Just one question:
What markers and pens do you use ?

Have you ever considered usin that style artwork in a book like KOTOR?
Even if its just in a flashback sequence....
It's a very dynamic look...

Beautiful work - I love to work in pen and ink and agree with your observation on its effects - some of my favorite work is in pen and ink! Revan rules!

I use pretty much whatever markers I have laying around, I'm not overly picky about that kind of thing. I used a combination of Sakura Micron Pigmas (01, 02, and 005), Sharpies, Prismacolor Cool Gray markers ( 20-60%), and a Uniball Gel pen ( I use them regularly in my sketchbook). Hope this helps out on your own sketches:)

You know, I like the immediate result from using solid blacks-- it helps creat great shapes and weight within the drawing. But I already spend about 12-14 hrs at the drawing table, and adding ink to the process would mean I wouldn't get any sleep :0

But never say never I guess...
