Sketchbook: De Drud Druckt

Quick colour test sketch for a new art project...
... and to try out my new inks.

It's a really small sketch, which is why it is so rough. I'm really impressed with the colour intensity of these inks, though. Thus far, I've only tried out Rohrer & Klingner's Calligraphy Ink, but I also have a few other brands lying around that I've yet to open.

As for the title, a Drud or Drude is the German name for a witch/fairy type creature that likes to sit on people and beasts (either while walking or sleeping), thereby sucking the life energy from them.

Anyway, here's the sketch now...
