Dandilion, I started off right away with this style and do love it, I basically stick with Bistre or Sumi-e ink and stay away from technical pens.
Ink is a great traveling medium, even with washes, but I do know there are a lot of artist who do use the more technical line when traveling, ie: train, subway.
I forget who mentioned the sepia, but I do use the sepia a lot also, but really have issues with the shellac.
I've been feeling very old looking at these great line works - I feel mine pretty much show my age, I told someone, I feel pretty "un-hip"!
Bobbykro your pointillism is so really well done, I wish you could give us an extreme close up of your "points"!
LOTS of great stuff on here!!
really liked the WWII Aviation stuff....FANTASTIC!
Here's a few of mine....they're kind of all
over the board, and all out of my sketchbook.
Pen and Ink is one of my favorite mediums...
whether I use ink, ball point, sharpie, brush or
whatever. These are straight-up B&W, I like to
combine line with watercolor or wash, too.
I am loving this thread
here are some that i drew about a year ago
the "finished" ink pics that i've done
everyones stuff looks really great! I love pen, its so easy to get fine detail with it. heres a tree I finished yesterday
Here's a couple more I did...
this one I did with sepia ink, with watercolor,
on a watercolor paper postcard, for a friend.
This one I did using a unibal micro tip pen, and a sharpie
this last one I did with the unibal pen, and Tombo markers,
which is why the color is so intense.
I am Shiva the god of death...
I really enjoy all of the variety in this thread. Here's my contribution, the Devonian Gardens in downtown Calgary.
A lot of great stuff here, really enjoyed browsing through these pages...
Here are few inks I did lately done with brush, not pen though XD
