X-Files Ink Sketch
Click for a closer look

I ran across this partially completed ink drawing of “The X-Files” stars Robert Patrick and Gillian Anderson (this was when David Duchovny had left the show for his brilliant film career) from a number of years ago and thought, given the new movie coming out, it might be somewhat timely. I did the drawing just for testing out some new ink nibs and different kinds of ink when I was experimenting with different tools. You can see I used a sepia ink for some of it, which I found way too watery. In fact there are four different inks on this, and I also used several nibs and brushes as well. You can see where I duplicated outside lines and forms to test different tools and materials. It’s bluish because of the crappy RGB scan.

    I know you were just testing out the lines, but I like how it looks like Agent Doggett is vibrating! Or perhaps he’s beginning to transform into T-1000!
