well - yesterday I inked the images for the first time, and as I deared, the inking was hard work....

(BTW: I don't use brushes for liquid emulsion bromoils, but spunges..)

The images turned out too flat - so I left them to dry over night, and now I have just added some more blacks into the images..

Too much? I am unsure (the images submitted here are actually higher in contrast than the originals..)

Maybe tomorrow, I'll add some warmth to the images.. maybe some more pencil drawings, or maybe I'll tone them in coffee (I think the white background is a little disturbing - makes the contrasts higher..)

Again: time will tell - I havn't given up .. yet......
