The Big Fish Eat the Little Ones



I've come to a greater appreciation for the difference paper choice can make on an ink drawing. For a long while, my assumption had always been a general "smoother = better," but with a certain degree of control, rough paper can have some really interesting, subtle effects.

I also find myself getting fussier with the linework when I'm using smoother paper. A toothier surface seems to bring out all the "happy accidents" in a way that does not antagonize my OCD as much.

Beautiful drawing!
