More fun with a brush pen



Just playing around some more with the brush pen. I'm starting to get a better handle on inking with a brush, but I'm still not sure if I want to ink my next story with one or not. I love the lively line and how, if you stay loose you can better maintain the spontaneity of the original drawing. On the other hand though, there are still elements that I like about inking with my pens. I guess I'll just have to do more tests...

I think they look cool. Your still have a lot of life in your brushwork. My wife thought they had so much gesture while only showing the head. That's good too. She's a tough critic.

I love your work! Not just this one but your whole page!

Do you find that inking with a brush takes so much more concentration?

Anyway, I've linked you on my blog, hope you don't mind! :)

Cheers,
Bobby.

We have very similar frames of mind, the style is the only different thing. Love your work my friend.
