„Seven“ 1998 – Ink on Paper

Hello Comic fans!

Here's a closer peek into the vintage treasure chest, again. 🙂

The drawing is from 1998 and shows the character "Seven of Nine" from the TV show "Start Trek - Voyager" (played by actress Jeri Lynn Ryan).

It's completely hand-drawn. Back then, I copied the workflow of design draftsmen/architects for my pictures. Above my light pencils, I inked with an ink pen and finally added the technical looking shades with T-square and set square. At the end, I used a kneaded eraser to remove most of the pencils and got rid of the rest after scanning with "posterization."

I like this technique, because it provides a noticeable contrast between the round, smooth form of the female body and the mechanical and clean 45° lines of the shadows. It never fitted better than with "Seven of Nine," a character half human, half machine.

What do you think?

Your HOK 🙂
