Daily Post: Robin with Inks

Here's the bird I posted pencils of earlier, again, a part of a larger image that I'll post soon. I got to do more feathering in this one ( a brush technique involving a series of tapering brush strokes) something I've been incorporating more and more into my ink drawings. I've always been heavily dependent on contour, (the outlines of the image) and so this is new, riskier territory for me, but I really like the effect. Usually I rely on color to give the drawing substance and weight, but lately I've been getting a little more adventurous.
