HOW TO DRAW A WOMAN WITH PEN AND INK – SKETCH


Hello my friends and welcome to another
Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today we
will make two ink sketches of two women. They’re going to be fairly quick
sketches, not in detail and so I’m not worrying very much about proportions. In this case I began with the hair and then we can come down to the neck and draw
the shoulders… the torso, and the legs. I’m doing this layout with a brush pen
which I loaded with watercolor paint. We can get the same result using a regular small brush and watercolor. Let’s draw the upper and lower legs and then her dress a long and elegant dress. And now I switch to a fountain pen, with this we give the details and reinforce the shadows We can go over the outline and we can also make any corrections or adjustments as needed. Let’s draw the eyes, nose and mouth. Just a suggestion of them not in detail, this is a quick sketch as I said more an expression of the pose and not too concerned about its correctness I’m just enjoying drawing. We can reinforce the hatching and cross-hatching in a few spots… and it’s ready! Good! and let’s do one more! Again I´ll start with the head and with the
shape of the hair, that’s usually a good beginning point for me when I’m using ink which cannot be erased, so I don’t want to make a lot of guidelines or things like that which I would do with pencil. I drew the arms up and now the body, even though she will have clothes, sometimes it is a good idea to first sketch the figure to make sure it is correct, as a
structure before drawing the clothing and we give it some shading. Let’s also add the cast shadow, like so. The lighting is coming from the left. Now I’m ready to switch to the fountain pen I’m using a burgundy red ink that’s in the pen, while for the brush I made up a similar color but much lighter, in watercolor, as I
mentioned. At first I tried diluting the fountain pen ink with water to a lighter version but it changed a bit to a pinkish, which I didn’t like too much. My chemistry knowledge can stand some improvements! [laughter]. The list of materials, however as always, is in the description below the video. If you like this technique I recommend you to sketch and sketch and sketch freely and do not be concerned too much about the result. They will become better and better with time. We give it the last touches and it´s ready!

And I will see you on Tuesday 😉 Subtitled by Grethel Trejo
