Do you find it hard drawing cute fuzzy creatures with ink?
My top tips are:
1. Make sure your proportions are right before you spend an age shading. I mostly draw freehand with my fineliner but I often use pencil just to plan where the eyes will be. It doesn't matter how well you shade your little animal face, if its eyes are too close together then it will look wrong.
2. Pay attention to the lightest areas of fur. If you add too many strokes you'll lose them. Use super light quick strokes and build them up. If you're not used to shading with ink, don't worry! It does take practice to learn how to achieve those super light lines.
3. Fineliners! I drew the botanicals with a 0.05 and the little possum with a 0.03. To create a fine, detailed drawing grab the tiniest liner you can get your hands on.
