This started out as a tattoo design, and today I decided to make an illustration from the initial design. Should be finished tomorrow

Bit of downtime in the studio so ended up doodling this on the front counter.

Did this today, wish summer was here. I wish I had better pens for inking too, so many mistakes sad.png. Maybe I should redo the lines. Turning this into a tropical sheet later I guess but I don't have any ideas.

Invest in the $100 set of Copic technical pens,,,Theyre worth every penny.

The core of this design was drawn up for a client, but I decided to render an illustration from it. Started this today, Not Finished

These aren't runny like the Copic drawing pen right? I quite liked the Faber & Castell Pitt brush pen but the Arches cold pressed 300 g/m has such a rough texture it wears the nib down when lining one small piece. It would be better with a sturdier nib. I've been searching for the one lining pen for 15 years now, something that gives a bold waterproof line, around 6 and 8 mm. I need to go with a less textured paper after I run out, you just can't get a nice even line when you do it in one go because of all the raised edges that leave empty spots.

Also badass whale. I like.

Well the copic tech pens have replaceable nibs, theyre not runny at all. That toothy paper is best for trad with bold lines, I'd use a micron size 1. It'll work for a page or two on that 300 lb cold press

Never liked microns myself, the line is too dry in my opinion. I find the nib on these types on pens in actually too hard for me to work comfortably especially on textured paper. Never mind that no store here carries these pens in 0.8 or 1mm, not that I've seen anyway. Forgot the zeros from the previous comment because of this.

Buying pens online is always a hit and miss as well, as I don't have a ton of money to throw around on art supplies :(. It sucks when you get a pen you don't like at all. I suppose I should start training how to line with a brush, but one still needs a good pen. I guess I'll try the copics once I'll have some money again.

Not a fan on microns either, but that 1 is great, different type of nibs when they jump to that size

Then I'll hunt some of these down, the nib is the only thing I have a problem with. Thanks for the tips!
