Two Elves and a Tree

Two elves

Two elves and a tree. Ink and copics on drawing paper. Ulla Hennig, May 2012

I am still knee deep in the world of fantasy. I had no reference for that drawing. The only thing I had in mind before I began with the pencil sketch was one elf and one tree and something for the elf to look at. And somehow this drawing developed.

And for the first time I applied the copic markers in some kind of pointilism – applying one dot beneath the other in order to get a kind of grassy look. I used the brush end of the marker for it. The next time I will use the chisel end trying to get more defined strokes.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
