So last night I took a few moments and finished an illustration project. It was intended for our house, but my friend Julie likes it a bunch and she talked me into selling it to her. I will end up making another copy for hubby (he says I never keep his favorites, including this one).
This is the first big project I finished with my Koh-i-noor 7 pen set. I am so happy with the performance of these pens compared to the Staedtler Pigment Liners I am used to. And so far these pens have not been quite as high maintenance as I expected. I get a greater variety of line width with the 7 pen set than the four pen set of Staedtlers, and since these are refillable I will end up saving a ton in the long run. If you invest in these and have a Hobby Lobby nearby, consider buying them there. I paid about $70 for mine after the 40% off coupon I printed off. And I didn't have to worry about them being damaged during shipping.
Here is the completed drawing. It was done on a 14x17" piece of Strathmore bristol board, and the image itself is almost 12" across.
I am selling PDF downloads in my Etsy shop for $4, and hope soon to offer prints.
