Inktober 2018 – Day 02; Pelikan 4001 Dark Green

Welcome to Day #02 of Inktober! 😀

I actually tried to stick to the theme of the day so I gave it a go myself and drew some Koi fish using Pelikan 4001 Dark Green. Now this ink for some of you guys might not be anything special, but I firmly believe that the 4001 is one of the most iconic and best lines of ink available. Interestingly you can’t buy this ink Romania! Unfortunately Pelikan doesn’t distribute it in the country because they think it wouldn’t sell. So we’re stuck with the standard blue, black and red because those are the most popular colors.

As you can see from the drawing and swab as well, the ink is quite dark and muted which for some might be a no-no. I on the other hand love green! Don’t care if it’s dark or light, it’s an awesome color! 😀


If you don’t know what Inktober is then check out the official website here, or if you don’t want to click away I’ll quote it here for you! 😉

Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.I created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
