    to start things off, here is my old 2006 pen sketchbook--about 51 images worth. it starts getting "good" at about image #9 or 10, but please scroll down anyway.

    Thanks for looking,
    ccsears

    ps. leave feedback if you want.

    these are some of the better ones

    screw it. i'll put up the rest of the pages. here are pages 31-36. 31 is a study after max turner. i've met max, he's a great guy. draws a lot like nicolai fechin. beautiful charcoal work that i'm adapting here to pen.

    32-36 are studies after joseph clement coll, a very famous pen and ink illustrator from the late 1800's and early 1900's. his work tends to be pretty dark, and maybe even overworked, but his light/dark patterns and shapes are good.

    i'm also a fan of franklin booth--check him out as well.

    the eye and face stuff was done with reference--i can't draw celebrities from memory. most of the eyes were done from "hollywood glamor portraits of the 50's." the skulls were done from life. some of the other stuff were studies after artists i like--max turner, joseph clement coll, etc. some were done from anatomy books--vanderpoel.

    this stuff at the bottom here (the environments) was done from life, markers, ballpoint and some white watercolor paint.
