Fast & Loose Ink Portraits

Recently I was messing around with ink portraits and drawing my face as I do quite often. I seem to be more relaxed drawing my face as I feel if I fuck it up then it’s alright. So after drawing mine I thought I would try a few friends portraits. I tried to focus on keeping loose and not getting bogged down with realism and as luck would have it,  they actually look like the people. I drew them with dip pen and ink and occasionally a v tec pen without pencilling first.

It’s a challenge to draw straight to paper ( you know what I mean) and yes it also helps to draw separate parts, as I do mess them up from time to time and then comp together digitally. Extra textures and colour was also added digitally.
