Cannibal Island


The above is a splash page illustration from a recent commission showing our doughty adventurers rowing up to an island no doubt inhabited by cannibals and worse.

For one of the illustrations for the same book, I tried doing the illustration in both pen-and-ink and digital means:

Pen and ink:




Both used the same original pencil drawing. Although the digital work flow allows easier changes and revisions, I like the line quality of pen and ink better.
