I have only one thing to add:

What did you add? The link is broken.

 

Oh, when I reposted it showed... a black rectangle? Hmm.... are you trying to readjust your eyes?

The negative space is a cool drink of water to eyes that have been burned! ;)

It shows up now. :) I'm sure if I stared at black long enough, it too would be retinal searing.

Pardon me, I'll be looking at some nice Mark Rothko canvases now... :cloud9:

But, Jon, you don't understand, I NEED a new ink. Okay, well maybe I don't need it, but I want it. I want another vibrant ink. What do you suggest?

 

BTW, I want to see a recent picture of your ink stash.

OK, Amber Lea: here's THE place to make your own: http://www.dayglo.com/design_center/

 

They claim they can make a Day-glo anything with their dyes and such. Maybe you could specifiy the ultimate eye-searing ink series? (NO...not for me! BSB looks OK for a signature, but a few pages written in it?)

MY EYES!

:D

In a world where there are no eyes the sun would not be light, and in a world where there were no soft skins rocks would not be hard, nor in a world where there were no muscles would they be heavy. Existence is relationship and you're smack in the middle of it.

Ooo..... I've had fun.

 

I asked if they could make inks that are FP safe.

Diamine Peach Haze

 

http://sheismylawyer.com/She_Thinks_In_Ink/Colors/Orange/Diamine_Peach_Haze.jpg

I love the peach, wish I would have bought this one instead of Diamine's orange. The orange is realllly bright but too light for use as anything other than a highlighter/drawing ink.

Right now I only have a sample. The first time I tried it it didn't mesmerize me. The second time, I really started to like it. Here it is with Dragon's Napalm.

Ooo, I haven't tried it, but it should go on the list?

When colors are used, I like the very brightest and richest. A note or letter that leaves me with smoking hair and radiation burns is a very special one B)

What are the outlines done with here? Marker, I am presuming. Otherwise, I want that tan ink!

Amber, I really love your drawings! Thanks for sharing so much with us!

 

As far as some bright inks, here's a few I'd throw out there to the list:

 

Oranges: Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin, Iroshizuku Fuyu-Gaki,

 

Green: Iroshizuku Chiku-Rin (yes it should go on the list), J. Herbin Vert Pre, J. Herbin Diabolo Menthe, Diamine Soft Mint

 

Purple: Noodler's Bay State Concord Grape, Private Reserve Purple Haze

 

Blue: Diamine Aqua Lagoon, Diamine Steel Blue (dark yet bright), Diamine Beau Blue, Noodlers Lightning Blue, J.H. Blue Azure

 

Those are all one's I've tried and enjoy for various purposes, some writing, some highlighting.

 

What has caught my eye, but I have yet to try, are the Organic Studios inks. They seem to have some bright ones, like: Emily Dickinson, Neon, Nickel, Uranium, and Vanadium.

 

And whatever you do try, please keep us posted with more great pics!

 

Edit: Looking back at the whole post I realized you had a couple of those...

Orange: Diamine Pumpkin, Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki

Purple: Private Reserve DC Supershow Violet

Green: MB Irish Green

Noodler's Blue Ghost (obviously only under black light)

 

Of course, so many of my inks are black, these seem bright to me.

Well, see, I'm going to add to my collection and I'm getting ideas from you. If any of you have some pics to post, I'd love to see them.
