Pen and Ink Texture Thumbnails

This was an exercise for Illustration class - practice rendering textures in wood, water, and stone using only pen and ink. I think my favourite is actually the first in the water series, because it reminds me of wet cobblestones.

Hey, great illustration exercise. I should do that more often. I'm glad to find another pen and ink artist/student. I always think slimy surfaces are the hardest to depict. I did a giant octopus image and it was SO hard to figure out.

Thanks for the comment! Yeah, the exercises are lots of fun...although I can't even imagine trying to do slimy! I'm pretty new to the pen & ink but I loooove it. I checked out your stuff and it's fantastic!

These are great! I'm doing a self portrait with pen and using different textures to convey value. Definitely giving me some great ideas. Love the wood grain and the water! Ok I like them all lol.
