The new pens i got...

So remember when i said i got new pens that were supposed to replace all the others, but just ended up being added to them? This is a quick sketch i did on the subway with them to test them out. They bleed through the paper, so if i use them the other side has to be for research, or something that will not be scanned nor seen by anyone else. But regardless i like the way these turned out. The pigeons from the previous post were also with those, but that was the second attempt, so they were a bit more confident. I like how i am forced to think of the line a bit more before marking them, but i was never really one to erase much in my drawings anyway.
I have a couple more samples from a figure drawing class, but you'll have to wait for those later.

I like sketching on reverse of bleed pages sometimes....I think pencil is a good way to go with those pages because you get to futz with a little tonality, and rendering...

Great practice either way...
