Pirates of the Caribbean by Terrauh Pirates of the Caribbean by Terrauh
Finally a new ink and coffee drawing. My Haunted Mansion was looking a tad lonely and out of place on my wall.

I had to make a companion piece for it. What better than the Pirates of the Carribean?

Okay. Once again, I can only express love for your art. There are so many things I love in this I can't even name them all! I love how the leaves are defined but not so defined that it just looks like a mess. I love how there are different tones in the brown/sepia coloring to add depth and values. The bridge is gorgeous, and the clean lines on the building just make me swoon.

Now question time, since this is an ink piece, what type of ink do you use? Do you use india ink or like an inking pen or maybe just a ball point pen? And when you say coffee, are you using coffee to stain the paper to add the different tones in the brown/sepia? And if so, how do you control the amount of coffee you put on it so well?

I love this piece so much and it is most definitely a worthy companion to the Haunted Mansion piece.

heehee! Thank you! I love your attention to detail, and very glad that you like this piece!

The ink is just a regular office supply ink pen (0.5 tip width up to 0.7 depending and sometimes a ball point papermate pen thrown in too for shading variation) The coffee is just refular medium-dark roast that I brew in my Keurig coffee pot. I add creamer to it as well (like I would if I were making the cup for myself to drink)because it seems to give me better control of the color saturation.

Sometimes I go over a spot a few times with thte coffee. I just dip one of my paintbrushes in the coffee and the ink from the pen blends with the strokes. It is not a very precise art, in fact, it's easy to slosh all the colors in a hurried blend to make the final product. If I want darker shading, I drag the brush through the ink lines a few more times, and if not, I use plain water or leave it alone entirely.
