Morning. Here's the rest of yesterday's sketchbook scratchings. Just more practice with the brush pen and some quick heads from the Loomis book.
I like how the trees came out in the background here, though I will definitely need to use a more delicate pen for smaller lines and details.
Matt and I ran up to Dick Blick in Boston last night and poked around. As a result, I'm going to try an experiment. If it works, great. If not, I'll be inking page one of Issue 15 twice. Yep, I've a brush pen, a few delicate pens, and some comic boards. Let's see what happens.
I'm a little nervous about inking pages traditionally again. But, if it's faster, which the brush pen seems to make it, it's worth a try. I'm fed up with the eight to ten hour inking marathons.
