So inspired by Mignola, I decided to try my hand at a Hellboy illustration (the tentacled horror is a bit of a swipe. . .). And I have been wanting/trying to do a comic book style page using watercolors like this one. Every time I start one, I decide to leave it as ink alone. This time, however, with the aforementioned inspiration, I was able to make the leap.
Watercolor and ink 14x10 on 200 lbs paper
And here is the pen and ink drawing before I applied the watercolor over it.
The inking was done use a folded pen (see below) from Toronto Pen Company. By varying the angle (and pressure), the nib allows for thin and very thick lines.
