I love drawing and painting with ink. Recently I've been experimenting with ink washes. First I draw the image with water, which is harder than it seems because you have to be super fast and the lighting has to be right so you can see what you're doing. Then I use a dropper to add ink. He'res an experiment I did yesterday of the Ghost of the Gulag.
The tiger is finally in the comic. As you may have guessed he is the titular character in this comic. Here's a little "how to" video on drawing tigers. The story takes place in the Russian Far East so the Tiger is an Amur or Siberian subspecies- the largest big cat in the world.
