You know for so long I’ve been trying to find a good brush pen that doesn’t go floppy or dry out after 5 minutes. It occured to me the other day that maybe I should try using a brush.
I’ve been drawing my latest comic inks with a brush, and it’s hard. So I was nervous about trying it out at life drawing, but it just so happened tonight was meant to be…
It’s a massive revelation! I can fill areas and do really fine details without changing tools. And there’s a flow to it I can’t get with a technical pen, or even a pen nib.
When I started this challenge back in October, one of my big goals was to learn to do comic inks like a pro.
Not saying this is pro level by any stretch of the imagination, but man it feels good to get a glimpse at another level.
You want to see my first comic ink in this challenge? It was from last October, just under 6 months ago. You’ll see what I mean, and why I’m so happy tonight.
