    Default Pen and ink

    Does anyone here draw with pen and ink? I'm an old hand at inking. Love it, but my hand messed up from drawing and painting so much.

    That is GORGEOUS, Janice!

    I'm terrified to draw in pen without laying out in graphite first. I'm always scared I'd make a mistake!

    I did do a few in pen from a few years. I haven't had time to do more recently but I would love to return to it. Sketching can be so relaxing.

    Here's is one of mine:

    Default Needs to Draw Again

    Love the cat. I did a pencil sketch of my cat years ago, I don't know how well it would scan in here. I hardly ever draw anymore, but used to draw all the time. Pencils, ink, later on the computer.

    Thank you. I also like your drawing too. Very nice.

    I also sketch out my subject prior to using pen and ink. Then erase the pencil lines once the ink dries. It usually comes out tighter than the penciling.

    I find it relaxing. And it cheaper than paint. Maybe one day you'll find yourself picking it up again? Art always calls to you, just like writing does.

    Are you still doing drawing? Even a simple doodle is still a drawing.

    Ooh, that is a very nice cat. I think they just look alike in black and white, lol.

    Mine is of my eighteen year old cat. Unfortunately, right after I did this drawing she stepped in front of a car. But at least I have this to remember poor ol' Pookey by.

    Thanks, Janice!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses that technique. :-) I used to see some of my classmates sitting down and doodling on their notepads. The sketch would be just lines at first and then it would turn into this amazing sketched figure. All from memory and in ink, too! I wish I could think like that. I need a subject to look at to work off of. :-)
