I have so far been creating expressive inky imagery to use within my illustrations, i had wondered whether a more refined drawing style would lend itself to this interpretation of the “12 dancing princesses” and to my illustrative style that is developing throughout this project. I created a small grassy scene using a fine liner and although i did not like the results i will consider it for future projects, perhaps those that require more detail? But i do much prefer the loose quality that pen/ brush and indian ink has to it, this is a bit sharper and more geometric in its nature.

here they are whilst being created, the geometric pattern was at first intended to be water but the sharpness of the shapes lends itself more to a path. but i do like the grassy aspects of this and edited one or two images to see the result:

experiment 1 experiment 2

they still arent what i am looking for in terms of this project, but the style is something i can revisit at a later date and see if it holds any promise or can be improved upon 🙂
