This illustration is not based on actual tribes (though that is a future idea called ‘tribes’), it merely had a tribal feel to it. That and hidden layers of ‘deep meaning’. This skull ink drawing was created with a variety of pens, from fineliner to Pentel Brush Pen (also known as ‘pocket brush). The larger areas of black are Indian ink and the slash of colour is simply pink ink (though says purple on bottle).

I loathe drawing feathers but figured I would give it a go. Skull ref from Pale Horses skull reference book called New Life, available as digital download from Illustrated Monthly
