Will You Let Me Pet the Kitty? by maina Will You Let Me Pet the Kitty? by maina
This little black and white illustration is a test among other little doodles tests for an idea that popped in my head.

I'm trying something new also: ink with ink washes. I need to focus on tones a little more these days. I'm hoping this idea will help improve my inking skills also.

This is Batty meeting a strange mermaid. I don't think I would trust her though...

5x7 ink and ink washes on Bristol paper.
