Mystic Woods Dragon

When I don't like the way a drawing has turned out, I start adding blacks. And more blacks. And even more blacks. Usually it doesn't help any. I don't think it hurt this one too much, though.
This is much larger than I normally draw, on a 14" X 17" sheet of bristol. Inked with pocket brush pen and a trusty Sharpie.


  1. Hi. I enjoyed your blog. It seems like a lot of fun.

  2. It's tough to see what it would've looked like without the added black areas, but it looks just fine.

  3. Hey Mike, if you look at Ted's YouTube video below, you can see what he did with it before he added the larger black areas.

    I like both of them.

    Using big black areas like that is risky, but it makes the drawing so much more dramatic.

    I could use some of that in my drawings.

    Great job, Ted!
