Using new materials to draw with can be both fun and difficult. For this I used a Kuretake brush pen, and found through the process it's not an easy pen to use. It has a spongy tip that puts a lot of ink down, but it's really hard to get fine lines out of it. I'll probably be using that for more close up shots from now on.
Making the commitment to use inks also can be challenging. As this was just a quick sketch I wasn't too concerned with perfection, but I would love to be able to redraw his head and a few other things.
