More ink line art and a color illustration

Texstar was an interesting company to visit as they produced some very interesting items such as space helmets for the astronauts and aircraft canopies. They even built a full scale mock up of an Navy VFX aircraft out of plastic.

Those are very nice "loose" style drawings... In your book "Pen and pencil Drawing techniques" you talked about the use of Bestine to dissolve graphite pencil for transfering... It is just Bestine or it can be done with another solvent, like turpentine?

Hi Kalinides,
I think Bestine is the best way to dissolve graphite. I've never tried using turpentine, it may work as well.
