    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.

    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!

    Hrm, I'm not too familiar with nibs (never used 'em myself, all my inkings are either brush or disposable tech pen) but if carrying the ink is a problem I'd presume there are cartridge based nib pens.

    Though really if you use containers that seal well and pack smartly it shouldn't be too much trouble to carry your pen, nibs, and ink bottle. It could be worse... you could be an alla prima painter who has to carry canvas, frames, brushes, paints, medium, solvent, rags, and so on...

    I'm pretty happy with my Speedball brand ink. Originally I'd started with Higgin's brand ink, which is pretty cheap and too watery for my tastes. For a little while I used the Windsor & Newton brand, which is a good ink but I didn't like the glossy effect it got when dried. Finally I settled on Speedball, it's smooth and dark like the W&N brand but it doesn't have that gloss once dried.
    -My work can be found at my local directory thread.

    Haha, this is true...I'll probably get brave some day. Or just try out ballpoint pens.
    I just like nibs because the lines can be so varied and expressive.

    I really need to do some searching though...to find the ultimate pen! D:


    P.S. - *convenient. my apologies. D:

    Lord of the Pail...

    ...Diaper pail.

    Having no burst of inspiration, but an itch to draw, I drew the diaper pail. Then I turned it into a cartoon. The end, logic doesn't exist here. Haven't wandered over to check out what the next daily sketch group subject will be yet!

    Hello again everyone. Here are some images I made last week. I'm not too happy
    with them it's been a lousy week and I haven't had much time for my art. I made
    these real quick for an rpg company, they said they wanted to see what kind of style I fit
    in best and to see the rate at which I draw (suuuure). I sent them on the date
    they had asked me to but I haven't heard from them since. It makes you
    wonder, these idiots want you to send them your portfolio, then it's not good
    enough for them so they want you to spend time making images for them so
    they can 'test' you. I don't get it, then why bother with a portfolio? And after
    all this trouble they put one through one figures that they would at least have
    the courtesy to tell you they can't use you just as fast and easy they had you
    do the work! But no why bother letting you know? And only to imagine that they initially offered $5 for a 1/4 page
    image, the standard is around $15! And it's a pretty well known company too!
    If anyone knows, is it OK for me to state which company this was so other
    artists interested in creating art for them can be more cautious?
    Anyway...crits and pointers are welcomed, mutilate these!
