The area had a lively but relaxing atmosphere. I kept doodling on the same page as I visited different places, while trying to fit them together into one scene. Then I colored in digitally, trying to keep the feel of the pen strokes.
생기 있으면서도 편안한 느낌을 주는 곳이었다. 장소를 옮겨가면서도 같은 페이지에 낙서를 추가해 나가면서 한 장면으로 만들어 보았다. 나중에 디지털 채색을 하면서 낙서의 볼펜 자국 느낌을 살리려고 해보았다.
Last year, I drew with dip pens and sketched more on site. I also tried weaving in stories, be it on science or others.
Next year, I’d like to try one-cut cartoons, starting from re-drawing classics, and hopefully at some point weaving in more from my day job, neuroscience and cognitive science. I know this part of my resolution is the same as last year’s. I found it difficult to start from vacuum, and that’s why I want to start from reinterpreting existing works.
After reading the comparison of Fude Nib fountain pens, I decided to get the one with the widest nib. I used to think pen strokes are too dry, and brushstrokes too wet, and this one seems to strike the right balance for me. It’s stiffer than I expected, but I like it since it gives a clean edge at the tip and a rough edge on the other side, which feels like carving.
Then – although I love admiring everyday objects, one point of drawing them is to see them from fresh angles, so I let My in.
