Terminator Ink Wash

Since I’ve been so very taken with ink wash of late, I want to show the progression of a highly referenced ink wash piece. For subject matter, I have used an Endoskeleton.


I apply lighter tones to the penciled drawing. This is the first few photos.terminator endoskeleton terminator


Then I add dark grays.terminator

Then black, and I adjusted the levels in photoshop.terminator

Then a color layer in PSterminator

And some gradients to render the Endoskeleton a little more.terminator

Coloring General Ursus


I wanted to share with y’all my coloring process. I recently drew and colored General Ursus. Here’s the original black and white line drawing:

What I should have done at this point is create a blank layer to sandwich between this and a duplicate layer, then multiplied the top layer (if you have questions about this process, feel free to ask in the comments section). But I was doing this for fun, so I colored directly on the line drawing! I know, I should be tried for war crimes, but I just wanted to get to the coloring!

I will color something else in the future and show my step by step process.

I have been getting into ink wash lately, and it turns out to be an excellent medium for rendering ghosts.

I applied a color layer to all of these ghosts except for the doll monster in the bottom right, who has only had his levels adjusted.ghosts
