Trying a Brush Pen

Oh, it's only taken me almost 3 years into sketching to get brave enough to try out a Pentel brush pen.  Goofy, I know, but it's SO bold and while it produces interesting brush textures and heightened shadows, it's easy to go overboard in an instant! 

After a little practice, I was pretty pleased with these early experiments.  Still much technique to learn!

  1. VERY nice! I like these a lot. As you know, I'm a big fan of the brush pen.

    1. Thanks Sue! Yes, you had the courage to use it 3 years before I'd try it, but you inspired me. Takes a lot of getting used to!!
