Ink and watercolor on 7.5x10 inch 4-ply 500 series cold press Strathmore Bristol. This was based on a b/w drawing that was printed in Sketchbook 12.

Penciled with .5mm HB mechanical pencil.

Inked with Koh-i-Noor ArtPen, a nice flexible tip pen which was, unfortunately, discontinued about 15 years ago. The ink Is a mixture of different brands that is free-flowing and yet waterproof.

Pencils erased. I used a Sakura Sumo eraser, if you are interested in the minutest detail.

Background in watercolor applied with a medium Pentel AquaBrush.

They're zombies, so I used zombie colors.


Almost there. Just some highlights need to be added with white watercolor paint.
