Inktober Day 3: BULKY

BULKY, with dip pen

In Bolivia, there are porters who carry these immense loads up and down the packed streets (and mountainside of La Paz) all day.

I tried this 2 ways: first with my trusty dip pen, and then with copic markers for some midtones. While I like applying the midtones, I still like the hatching, and if I’m honest, ink-staining and paper scratching character of the dip pen better. I’m going to keep experimenting through this Inktober to find that balance I really enjoy.
