Hatched Branches by Mystalia Hatched Branches by Mystalia
I started this one in a sketchbook when I was waiting at the hairdressers and finished it while waiting for LoL queue timers. Took a lot of ink and hatching, haha. I spent an entire brand new 0.1 pen making this; I'd just bought it and it's empty now.

Watchers of mine might recognize a returning pattern of dragons surrounded by branches and trees. Cuz I love 'em.

Medium: Staedtler inking pens

The line work is fascinating...really gives us the feel f the shape of the dragon. I also love the shadow casting within the branches! Beautiful.

Pens are the best though ^^ Easy to take with you, easy to use without access to a big work space, they don't require a lot of time to prep. So good. Although working with indian ink and dip pen will give a darker and more pure black.

This is great, the hatching gives a strong sense of three dimensionality, and the anatomy is wonderful~ Plus, nice horns, they look very branch-like.

Hatching is the best <3 It's such a zen activity for me, putting line after line after line on paper. Very anti-stress.

The shading on the trees is beautiful, I'm going to try to adopt it for my drawings, and  the line work is earned by a lot of practice, this piece really shows your experience. <3

thank you! I love inking and cross hatching. There are so many ways to create depth and texture and light with just lines.

I wish you good luck in learning it and using it in your own work!

This is a really beautiful design even if it's a theme you've used before. I really love how you drew all the spines~

Thank you! Lots of spines and horns and teeth are my favorites :)

I keep making these dead-looking trees in my inkings and I don't particularly know why. They're fun to ink and are really handy to get a good composition without thinking too much about it. And they also look kind of spooky, which is nice.
