I’m glad I added them, it breathed a little life and dimension into the piece.
This was created with a 3 tight liner, #08 08 bugpin liner (it creates some of the most beautiful lines I have experienced. I’m hooked on this needle), #08 11 bugpin curved magnum, #08 17 curved magnum and intenze and eternal inks.
