A long-sized ink artwork about the Mermaid’s life 🙂 This drawing is a part of my new Marine Fantasy series, three large-scale ink artworks about sea creatures and exciting adventures.

The process photos and video
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).
