R/SketchDaily 46/46: Show & Tell

I’ve found my favorite medium: a Speedball dip pen with a #102 artist’s nib and black waterproof ink. It is so. much. fun. I love how the dipping makes me slow down. I love how the line weight varies with how hard I press. I love the scratchy sound the nib makes on the paper. I even love how messy it is and how the ink will sometimes run out on the paper in a big pile – I just make it work. Even more I love how this method is teaching me so much about light & shadow and also texture. This is my favorite piece so far. Beautiful, black ravens.
