Sketch of a Proboscis Monkey I did just before falling asleep in bed last night. I frequently get asked if I do prep sketches for my ink drawings: not always but often! Here you can see the initial soft gestural Colorase pencil sketch which I put under a fresh sheet of paper to do the Pentel Aquash ink sketch. This is not a necessary step but I find it actually makes the finished product more gestural since I can be quite expressive in the pencil sketch and work out the overall shape before committing to ink. #jawcooper #colorasepencil #pentelaquash #monkey #proboscislyfe #tipsandtricks
