V for Vendetta

Remember, remember

I was in the mood for a little high-contrast inking yesterday, so I picked this pose is from the back of V for Vendetta DVD case.

The black ink from the brush pen was not very dark at all. Rather than try to black it out entirely, I added an extra layer of crosshatching which gives it a nice depth. The gray is from a Prismacolor art marker with a fantastically overpowering scent. My head hurts thinking about it.

It seemed unfinished with an empty background, so I decided to throw in a dramatically-angled Parliament building. After I drew it I realized you can see his hair hanging down. Hmm. Instead, image you’re looking at it from an angle, and it’s windy up there.

True size: 2.5″x3.5″. Completed over a leisurely two hours watching TV, including the much-needed-end to Heroes.
