Ready to go

Well looking at the stretched paper this morning, it is ready to work on. Paper is a very strong thing, it has stretched so taught that the board itself is bending, ever so slightly, which does sometimes happen.

It's good paper, I use Fabriano paper, which is hand-made in Italy. It has no tooth on it at all, which is useful when you work with a mapping pen with a needle point, which catches on everything if you're not careful! Hopefully I will at least get it inked today.

Yesterday I showed you a sketch of a Goblin artist. These are the roughs for Goblin Lunch, which I will publish tomorrow. I work in a scribbly way initially to get the character right.
