SCARLET Wednesday…


There’s another great drawing jam over at DRAWINGBOARD.ORG— this time featuring THE AVENGERS (the MARVEL comics characters… not the old TV show starring Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg). I always loved Wanda, the SCARLET WITCH character, so I did a sketch of her for the jam– and thought I’d post it here for you to see –although you should also follow the link and check out all the wonderful stuff done in the thread… lots of very cool stuff to see there. Not much by way of brush-pen used this time…. the sketch is mostly inked with a Pigma Fountain Pentel made in Japan. It’s got a very flexible plastic nib at the point that allows you to get a variety of thick-to-thin lines that can emulate a brush if you use it that way. Unfortunately, the tip tends to wear down quickly after not that many uses. I love the pen– and haven’t been able to find them online for quite some time. I don’t know if they still make them or not. I’ve only got about 10 of them or so left… so I use them sparingly these days. Brian Stelfreeze originally turned me on to them, so maybe I should give him a shout to see if he knows if they’re still being offered anywhere. Wanda’s hair is done with a Faber-Castell PITT brush pen. I’ve been using that as well as a Pigma brush pen on the previous two sketches. They have permanent india ink in them, so they’re not going to fade, which is a good thing.

That’s it for today.

This is Entry 212.
