I received a Japanese nib holder and assortment of nibs back in Christmas 2014 and was inspired to create something with a Japanese vibe. I intended to ink the entire thing with the dip pen......... but I've actually yet to use it. I actually inked this with the usual tools - Kuretake No. 8 brush pen, Micron /Copic 0.1, 0.35 and 0.5 pitt pens and Kuretake PK3-10S disposable brush pen.
I always intended to colour this digitally too but I'd put so much of myself into the ink that I felt it deserved better than my MS Paint skills - so I handed it over to Chris "Burbs" Jenkins of Reckless Hero who is like a wizard but better. I couldn't be happy with it. the final image really reaffirms my decision to let someone who knows their stuff tackle the colours.
Using my art to help charity is something I do quite often and I am finding so much satisfaction in doing so, which far outweighs the pleasure I receive from pocketing the proceeds of my art myself.
