Today I am finishing a few spot illustrations for a job. But in order to warm up I thought I would ink this Poison Ivy pin-up I penciled yesterday. This was done entirely with Micron Pens. Mostly an 08 nib. I was playing with using a "dead weight" line. Meaning there isn't any variation in the line weight. No "thick and thins". There are several artists who use this style and I really admire it. It's harder than you would think. Somehow they still manage to breathe some life into the drawing in spite of one line weight and, most of the time, no black areas. This is the first attempt I have been pleased with in trying this style. Most of the time I end up going back with a brush and beefing it up.
