BARBARELLA PSYCHEDELLA.

Barbarella Lineart.


This is a new Barbarella piece I started last night while watching Persepolis (and because I was sick of looking at my previously mentioned Hellboy piece). Seems almost kind of inappropriate to draw sleepy-eyed space babes while watching a movie like that, but... Well, I really have no excuse. For what it's worth, Persepolis was totally amazing. As for Barbarella and her hidden sweetheart, Pygar, they are going to be submitted to "Crazy 4 Cult." No idea if I'll get in, but whatever. It's an excuse to draw more fan art.

My pen nib died partway through inking so a lot of this was done with a thin brush. I've never inked with a brush before, so it was interesting. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I kind of miss the scratchiness of taking pen to paper and those little surprises when the nib catches and clicks, sending specks of ink flying. Happy accidents and whatnot.
