Shaun Waugh at the drawing board uses a 0.35mm Rotring technical pen to illustrate the Jewelled Gecko (Naultinus Gemmeus) in a pointillist illustration style onto a dimensionally stable sheet of translucent mylar substrate. The original illustration is rendered in landscape orientation at an enlarged size, 600 x 450mm.
Shaun is using a perspex drawing ‘bridge’ to assist drawing in the centre of the large artwork and to eliminate the risk of smearing or damaging the drawing in any way. Using the bridge also avoids getting any skin oil onto the Mylar surface. Drawing ink will not adhere to fingerprints, or any skin oils, and oils from the skin once on the Mylar are very difficult to remove.
