When drawn with knowledge, a great pen drawing carries a certain evocative power that stems from the cleanliness of the finished work. However, that same cleanliness can also leave you vulnerable because high contrast line drawings give you nowhere to hide.

Words: 4, Pages: T u bbs I n the mids, I was sensing a lack of focus and accomplishment in my drawings and pastel paintings. I felt a need to concentrate on one medium and develop into the very best artist I was capable of becoming—and, at the same time, to create work that was marketable.
Those concerns led me to find a medium few other artists were using, and determine how to provide a service people valued. At about that time, my sister came to me with the kind of request artists often receive. However, in this case, it gave me an idea of how I might change the direction of my art career. I put a lot of effort into that house portrait, and several people who saw my pen-andink drawing ordered similar renderings of their dwellings.
With that encouragement, I asked a local gift shop to display a few of my drawings of historic homes in hopes of attracting more commissions. Tubbs, house in Montgomery and , pen-and-ink, 12 x 9. This content has been abridged from an original article written by Melissa B.

Within a relatively short period of time, I began to concentrate on drawing buildings of architectural significance or the decorative ornaments on those structures. Some were in danger of being altered or demolished, and a few fragments were already removed from their original place of honor.
My work became an act of preservation, something that was and still is very satisfying to me. Those drawings brought me a great deal of additional attention in the region and reinforced my standing as an artist available for drawing private homes and public buildings. In , I ended a career as an art director and the managing editor of a magazine to become a fulltime fine artist.
I simply needed more time to fulfill commissions, and I had ideas about expanding my art business by making proposals to area businesses and institutions. Three months after I resigned from my job, the Montgomery Area Business Committee for the Arts accepted my proposal to create five drawings that were given to businesses supporting the arts; a year later, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts commissioned a series of eight drawings of the interior and exterior of its building, and a short time later, the museum asked me to teach drawing classes.
Papers to create drawings for their newly re-designed drawing pad covers, Series smooth surface and Series Bristol plate finish.
Urban Lion was created for the series pads and a drawing of their logo, the thistle, was created for the series. Terra-Cotta Faces, Goatman Materials and Techniques My drawings are based on photographs I take with Nikon D50 digital SLR camera with a zoom lens and an additional longer range zoom lens for taking pictures of ornamentation on taller buildings.
I shoot overall photographs of the subjects, trying to get the best composition within the lens so I can use one of those images as the basis of a drawing. I take a lot of detail photographs at different exposures so I capture important information in both the shadow and sunlit areas.
I determine when to take photographs of buildings in order to get the best shadows by noting which direction they face.
If facing east, take pictures in mid-to-late 4 www. If facing west, mid-to-late afternoon. If the building faces south, the best time is either early morning or late afternoon. I prefer late afternoon because I like the shadows going from left to right. It is almost impossible to get a photograph with strong shadows of a building facing north because the sun stays so low in the sky—especially in the winter.
I print color images on HP Premium Plus glossy photo paper from which to work. After trying a number of different pens, inks, papers, and boards, I found the combination of materials that works best for me. The pen I preferred to use is no longer available. I have had to find a new pen to use twice now because the manufacturers stopped making the pens that I used. I now primarily use the Rotring Isograph. The barrel is shorter than a rapidograph so there is less chance of clogging.
It is always ready to use. The point glides smoothly along the paper and the ink is a rich, dense black and lightfast. These pens come in several point sizes. I use the smallest which is. Rotring pens are no longer sold in North America so I purchase them online. In my search for a pen to use for my architectural drawings I discovered two pens that work well for other types of drawings.
The Copic Multiliner SPs, a Japanese made pen, is wonderful for very small drawings requiring more wispy type line; and Prismacolor Premier Fine Line Markers for drawings when a warmer black ink is needed..
Both of these pens come in several point sizes and may be purchased in artist supply stores and hobby shops or online. The inks in these pens are also lightfast. I prefer to work on sheets of Strathmore series drawing paper because of its rich, warm, off-white color and the way the surface accepts the ink. I know many other pen-andink artists work on illustration boards, but I find them to be either too stiff or too glaringly bright.
This archival drawing paper can be purchased in pads, in rolls and in sheets. The rolls of paper have been very useful when creating a drawing larger than the largest pad or sheet size. After sketching the basic design of a subject with a graphite pencil, I lay in the underlying details in the first layers of ink. Those details include the shadow areas that may not be clearly seen in the finished drawing, but add depth to the image. I slowly build up layers of lines in one small area at a time, changing the direction of my parallel lines so the combination of hatched and crosshatched marks adequately describes the shape and volume of the subject.
When I put a line down, I want the marks to be deliberate and confident, not tentative and sketchy. In addition to the number of layers of lines, I can also control values by the amount of space I leave between the lines.
As the drawing progresses, I continually add several more layers of lines to the darkest areas to strengthen value contrast. If I am uncertain how to handle a pen and ink drawing techniques passage in a drawing or how to presby Melissa R. Tubbs, ent a new subject, , pen-and-ink, I look through my 13 x9. The variety of line patterns in the reproduced wood engravings, etchings, ink drawings, and woodcuts can suggest new ways of developing flat patterns, dimensional shadows, strong contrasts, clear edges, and effective compositions.
I work best in intervals of two hours or so, with minute breaks between each session. It can take anywhere from two hours, for the smallest drawing, to 70 hours, for the largest drawing, to complete a work.
These scans hold the line detail of my drawings beautifully. I can e-mail images, upload images to show entry sites, burn to CDs to mail and reproduce images as needed. The cost is nominal because the work is black and white.
Technology has really made it so much easier than when we had to have slides made. This content has been abridged from an original article written by John A. In the lateth- and earlyth centuries, the advent of mass printing, the widespread distribution of magazines, and the somewhat primitive state of photography combined to give illustration a unique power. A number of immensely skilled artists were able to deploy their talents before an enormous public and amass considerable riches.
Along the way they established an approach to representation that is uniquely American. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the pen-and-ink sketches of Charles Dana Gibson 7 www.
Gibson reworked the ven- title. Not only is the subject a celebration erable art of pen-and-ink to suit the of modernity but the way the image is ebullience and optimism of a new conti- made also conveys a very modern sense nent and a new age.
He invented the defined by a certain zippiness and gencharacter of the Gibson Girl, a smart, eral light-heartedness. In order to understand just how this independent, vivacious, and attractive type of young lady whose presence and look is achieved it is worth comparing the piece to a pen-and-ink poise command the respect work by a European draftsand admiration of the entire Hercules Overpowering man of the previous genmale gender.
And yet we sense immeby David Beynon Pena, diately that the , pen-and-ink. You can see this very clearly in the extended legs of the nearest girl in Picturesque America, where the lines all run down the leg. The Daumier, on the other hand, runs pen lines both along and around the forms.
In European drawing, going back to the Renaissance, the idea was to use hatching to both build tone and to display the contour top left Subway Commuter 8 www. A drawing by Raphael, Hercules Overpowering a Lion, shows typical freehand hatching running both ways around the form, particularly in the legs and in the back of the figure. We can see in the Gibson drawing that the artist abandoned the attempt to fully describe the form.
By simply running the line one way along the form he stated only the tonal position and thereby created a much more lively appearance in the image as a whole. This effort is combined with a greater simplification of contour than Daumier attempted. While nearly all drawing involves editing and selection, Gibson seems to have taken an extra step, reducing figures, clothing, and space to a concise repertoire of highly readable shapes.
For the viewer it is like eating ice cream—and the American public really did lap it up. He owned an island off the coast of Maine and, when one of his principal publishers—Life magazine—got into financial difficulties he simply bought the whole thing. He married into the Astor family, and even had the Gibson martini named after him.
Most famous for his work in color, which included the legendary recruitment poster of Uncle Sam, Flagg did many pen-and-ink drawings that clearly owe a considerable debt to Gibson. Flagg worked directly in ink, without any preparatory graphite, to achieve a powerfully decisive finish. The illustrator and portraitist Everett Raymond Kinstler — continued the tradition. He was captivated. There he found himself working under Clifford Young, a brilliant illustrator who had also been a mentor to Kinstler many years before at the Dunn School of Illustration, in Leonia, New Jersey.
Today Pena keeps a studio on Union Square in Manhattan and plies the trade of a portrait painter with great success.
Neil McMillan grew up in South Carolina and was an avid artist as a child. When it came time for college, however, he attended The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina, intending to take up a career in medicine.

Сьюзан заглянула в распечатку через плечо Джаббы. - Выходит, нас атакует всего лишь первый набросок червя Танкадо. - Набросок или отшлифованный до блеска экземпляр, - проворчал Джабба, - но он дал нам под зад коленом.
- И он положил конверт на стойку. Консьерж взглянул на конверт и что-то грустно пробормотал себе под нос. Еще один любитель молоденьких девочек, - подумал .
Что случилось. По голосу Стратмора, мягкому и спокойному, никто никогда не догадался бы, что мир, в котором он жил, рушится у него на глазах. Он отступил от двери и отошел чуть в сторону, пропуская Чатрукьяна в святая святых Третьего узла. Тот в нерешительности застыл в дверях, как хорошо обученная служебная собака, знающая, что ей запрещено переступать порог. По изумлению на лице Чатрукьяна было видно, что он никогда прежде не бывал в этой комнате.
