It also gave me a chance to try some new ink techniques. I have been learning and enjoying using a dip pen for inking. The inspiration is partly from long-time curiousity and a chance meeting with William Stout at a local convention.
I bought the nibs and holder years ago but never got the courage to try it out until I got to see the artistic potential in person.
I'm hooked. The line variation and subtlety are wonderful. And it works to my drawing strength. Even better, the dark solid lines scan great for use in Illustrator and Photoshop with minimal post processing.
Looking for great things to come!
