I wanted to go back to pen & ink for the letter “M” because I really like the the smooth surface on the paper in this sketchbook and I was in the mood to draw detail instead of color washes. Negative space was created for the letter by using tiny shapes that are similar to popcorn. This was fun in the beginning, but by the time I finished, I had a bit of a headache and my hand was cramped up. To create the darker areas, I drew the blobs closer together and I spread them apart when I wanted to lighten the background. This was one of those I was glad to finish.
