Above: Sketch made from the TV, watching a "Top Chef." This is one of the competitors. Pentel pigment ink squeezable brush pen. In a Flex Book sketchbook, which I'll review next week.
Choices about ink delivery can be important to the over all look of your sketch. And while this sketch has a definite messy look I quite enjoy the way I used the dry-brush effects of this brush pen: the Pentel pigment ink squeezable brush pen.
I drew my contours in quickly by first squeezing the pen and making sure the ink saturated the brush. After the main contours were in I worked in the dark value areas like the hair, and beard until the brush started to go dry, and then I filled in the lighter areas of shading with the resultant dry brush, and lighter pressure.
It's a very quick and fun way to explore making different drawing vocabulary marks.
