    Been meaning to contribute to this thread for a while now... and I'm glad I've found the chance. Here's a couple of pieces I'm proud enough to display here, both drawn from reference.

    The first, is the bandit character from "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (sorry, his name escapes me ).

    And the second, a drawing of the Greek bust of Aristotle.

    Edit: Bah! I forgot one, Katsumoto from "Last Samurai". Again, drawn from reference.

    some older abstract ink images i did a few years back. i still like them, some more than other. Micron pens or ball point, most of these are microns.

    This is one of my favorites out of this little series

    These keep getting more awesome with each post!

    I love the fact that Ink may start receiving the respect it is due, it's a hard medium to work with in my opinion.

    I was really surprised to be notified of this, which just reinforces my thoughts above.

    scroll down to "to view..."

    needless to say it made me very happy! It's called - "Love is Blind".

    Hello everyone. There's some great stuff here. I thought I'd post some of my latest inks here too. I already have them in my sketchbook so sorry if you've seen them before. Any crit would help.

    all from reference.

    This place is the best. D:

    Once I get some more time, I'll have to go through every entry, but I'm a bit short for time at the moment.

    Anyway, here's a testing sketch I did last night [also posted in my sketchbook].

    Inklings --- a place for ink drawings
    [psst. it's an eagle preening itself.]


    I do have a question though.
    I'm just starting out/getting used to ink and nibs.
    While I really like using nibs more than a pen, I find that nibs aren't very convent when traveling.
    So.
    I feel slightly dense for asking, but is there a kind of ink pen that imitates a nib? The only thing I could think of was a calligraphy pen, but I've never used one of those either.

    Annnnnnnnnnd.

    What's everyone's preferred ink? I'm using Winsor&Newton right now, but I wanna try other companies.

    Funny you should ask this, I just stumbled on this thread... I'll be posting here shortly as pen and ink is one of my favorite artistic medium... However, to the point! I picked up pen and ink when I was stationed in the Republic of Korea a few years ago, and took my pen and nibs everywhere! While its not too easy and set up and draw at a coffee shop due to chance of spilling your bottle of ink, its possible to carry them in a small package.

    On my last deployment to Iraq, I packed my Higgins ink bottles in zip lock (snack size) bags, and loaded up about three of them in wide mouth Nalgene 1qt. bottle (or something equivalent) and none of the inks so much as spilled a drop due to the sturdy plastic bottle holding the air pressure of home all the way to Iraq. From 30 degrees on the ground in Alaska to -50 in the air to 135 degrees on the ground in Iraq, ink made it.

    As far as pens go, I use an Altoids or similar metal can with some foam (in my case it came from some packaging that contained pewter game figures) to hold the nibs while the pen goes into the pencil case (made by Tran I believe...) with all my other pencils. Add in some little round plastic ketchup trays to the Nalgene bottle containing the ink and you have a completely mobile pen and ink setup!

    Edit: adding picture of travel kit!

    I drew this picture while I was Iraq (the last time and very last time thank God!) using a .35 technical pen, black, and neutral grey ink on illustration board (which unfortunately I only had so much of... and this was the only piece that turned out well!). Photo reference used from www.af.mil/photos

    You can fit ink anywhere, whether or not you can draw with it just depends on if you can find enough of a hard surface and a place where the bottles won't spill... Or just stick to technical pens for travel!
