Pen & Ink Sea Turtle

I was inspired by Matt’s live lesson. I admit, I didn’t follow the lesson along exactly, instead I traced the basic contour outline and used his finished drawing as a reference for the contour and shading. It was definitely a great lesson in using a dip pen and India ink and I had to force myself to take my time and work one pen stroke at a time. I wasn’t always successful, but the drawing as a whole is satisfying for me.

BTW: I used Bristol Vellum paper.



Susan, that’s beautiful!

Awesome! You did well on the shading, there’s definitely a difference in texture between the shell and turtle! :turtle:
