IF3Y49 - wilderness



I gave up this silly idea that I don't need pen and paper.
now I need to find a way to merge the lines into the colors. better luck next time.
let's face it, I usually use brushed that cost more than $50, and I order uniball pens by dozens because they are the only one I want to use. It just won't work with a heavy thick plastic wacom pen. not as long as I can't afford something more sophisticated than a volito.

other than that, snow is finally starting to melt but the roads suffered from the month long freezing temperatures. no ride planned yet.

**edit**
by popular demand (well yes, Rolly IS popular) here is the original pencil scan

  1. Hah! I thought I was the only one with a Uniball fetish. Nothing else I've tried ever feels right. And the plastic on plastic of the tablet just feels so off.
    Looks great! I like to see the lines, I may be odd though.

  2. hi! thanks for your comment.

    "la Station indienne" was integrally made with mitsubishi uniballs. In the middle of the book I tried dozens of other ballpens untill I could finally buy a full box of new uniballs. nothing like entering a big shop, ask to see all their ballpens and nod "naa, just not the one I want" :)

    here's the original sketch, I was too lazy to post it yesterday. (it's not ballpen, just pencil)
    I love your last image with the bike by the way. I'm just sick of trying to draw a single line with the wacom.
    maybe I'll try to switch to a bigger model.
