Sorry for the tardiness of today's "Sunday Art Blog". It's been a hectic weekend playing with my daughters, reconnecting with my old friends and catching up on paying bills, etc.

I have a big project coming up which I'll be illustrating in my pure pen and ink style. So I've decided to do some practice runs doing these elegant stand alone illustrations in that pure ink style, and show all the fans out there how I do these ink line drawings step by step.

This is pretty much step one. I draw the figure using several photo references and focusing heavily on the light and shadow. Once I've established the gray tones and the outline of the drawing, I start inking in the lines which I'll show in my next Art Blog.

Awesome Frank! I'm soo looking forward for your pen & ink style, which is quite rare nowadays. That will inspire me & others to create the same.

"Step one I draw the figure..."
SHEESH!  
If I drew that I would stop right there and retire!

I thinking of adding Frankenstein monster in the background, behind the curtain, as a nod to Bernie Wrightson's masterpiece, Frankenstein.

Ah! Bernie's Frankenstein is one the best pen & ink style. I literally start drawing Franky using that style. Looking forward for the finished artwork. :squeal:

When I hear illustrations in the classic pen and ink style I think of classic literature to be illustrated. The Lost World? 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?
Dracula? I'm sure you'd do a killer job on any of those but I also think of some of the gorgeous preproduction art that was done for the original King Kong which was very much in that classic style.

Can't wait to see your take on Frankenstein's monster. I don't think I've ever seen that except the painting you did of the Boris Karloff version.

Caped....not sparkling.

Oh yeah, I'd love to see Mr. Cho's take on the scene where Dracula's three hungry brides find Jonathan Harker sleeping in the castle.
