1000 drawings, Contrast sketchbook, Nature

Another piece from my contrast sketchbook — where the left page is in black & white, and the right in colour — here is a close up of iguana skin.

I’m doing this to:
1. teach myself how to extract black values from what I see (namely to improve my comic inks)
2. find different ways of creating textures with just ink (and have it not look like the dog’s dinner)
3. improve my watercolour textures

There IS method to my madness!
