This is another artwork from the Marine series, and it’s time to write about it and show you the overview. I feel like it took me ages to complete this drawing but the result is worth it 🙂
The artwork is a cut A2 size of paper, so it’s quite a large format, especially for the liners of such small width like 0.05 or 0.1 (I used them a lot for creating textures and details).
The main technical difference between the large-scale drawings I made a year and a half ago, and those I worked on recently is the variation of the line width and increased contrast.
My older artworks were lacy and low-contrast because I used many tiny lines, the thinner, the better. And now I use more liners of broader widths (like number 0.3 or 0.4) and, situationally, apply brush strokes for contouring.
On this photo, you can see me working with an S liner of the Faber-Castell Pitt line (S means 0.3).

I hope you like the process and the result. I can’t wait to finish the last drawing of this series!
By the way, I have already started the work on that artwork, and today I’ll show the first process photo (if you don’t follow me on social media, check out my Links page and be sure to keep up with my progress! 🙂 )
Have a great day and happy spring! 😀
