Planning

Having worked out your ideas you can use pencils to construct the composition and also produce independent studies of individual sections of the design. The illustration (right) is a preliminary sketch for a science fiction composition.

Wet medium techniques

Fantasy artists usually use wet medium tools to produce drawings intended for reproduction as they make clear, strong marks. Since these marks are difficult to erase the artist normally preplans his design in light pencil or chalk. Working with a wet medium requires you to use stronger papers than with pencils or chalks, as the moisture can cause the surface to buckle. There are two types of tool, those containing their own ink; technical pens, ball point pens, felt tip pens, and those you dip into ink such as brushes and dip-in pens.
