I hadn't drawn using ink and wash for a long, long time so last night I tried it out on this study of Johnny Alpha. Building layers of wash, letting the ink bleed and the brown tinge from the pencil lead gives a nice worn, rusty feel. Not perfect, but fairly pleased with the result...and couldn't help but think that Alpha reminded me of the brilliant Alex Harvey.... albeit a bit more muscled and with glowing mutant eyes!
