Inking Test

This is all freehand ink drawing with a new Faber Castell brush pen. I generally prefer to do my basic inks, the grounding lines with a brush. Detail can be filled in with a pen or pencil but I like the feel of a brush on the main lines. Unfortunately it’s not easy to carry around ink and brush without risking spilling the ink or ruining the brush. Fortunately there are now brush pen that approximate the old school tools. I still prefer to use my have-to-wash-them-after-I’m-done-or-they’re-toast brushes but the brush pens allow me to ink in the field when the need arises.
