I'm really into drawing with white materials on a black background - scratchboard, digital, white pens and pencil like these drawings, I absolutely love it. It's like adding a free bit of instant drama to your picture, and I much prefer bringing out the highlights to working in the shadows.

(oh, and I rudely forgot to add Alt-text to my pics yesterday, so I've sorted that for these ones!)

@nixnada these are beautiful. really liked the portrait of the old man. felt his presence deep. just great...

@Ged Thank you - I wasn't too sure about the white pen on top of the pencil, so I'm glad you liked it!

@nixnada i really agree, it makes me feel like I’m creating, not that black doesn’t but it just yeah, as you said bringing out the light rather then creating the shadows

@foxes I think I might have forgotten how to do black on white drawings! 😄
