Wizened Old Scholar by CrimsonMagpie Wizened Old Scholar by CrimsonMagpie
A quick sample of a fantasy book character I did, meant to look old and frail, with a wispy little beard. I knocked this out quickly on a scrap of paper I had lying around (hence the unusual format), but am more pleased with it than with most images I draw... isn't it always the way? :B

Big blocks of black are fun. :la:

I appreciate when artists are able to make so much with only two colors. It's "simple", but still, it carries many details through it's lines, by just using the black color on the pure, white background. As for the drawing itself, I like it, his expression seems serene, and transmits an interesting feeling of wiseness.

Thanks, since starting to draw comic stuff purely in black & white I've learned a lot about shape, form, and all that! :la:

Loving this! It's got a nice Mike Mignola vibe to it!

Cheers, the 'Mignola style' is my favourite comic style, and one I try to get right. :la:

Really like the thick black lines used to pick out the details of the face.

Cheers, I'm quite fond of using just lines to convey detail. Saves time on hatching too.... :dummy:

I just did a big drawing and used a worn-out permanent marker to make shading. So quick! :iconrlyplz:
