Time to try something a little different for day 9 of the Art Improvement Hell challenge. If you’ve ever seen Chasing Amy, a movie chronicling the love life a one comic book artist, you know that inkers sometimes get the short end of the stick. Despite what critics say in the movie, inkers do a lot more than simply tracing the artwork of another artist. There’s great skill necessary to outline scenes, expressing action and emotion in harsh black and white. I figured I’d give inking a try on this drawing.
The assignment: to draw a place I’ve never been to or drawn before. I’ve never been to Middle Earth or to a hobbit home in the Shire 🙂
