This is a “Pen Experiment” I suppose. Regardless, there is reason enough to post as such! I was very happy to receive a Tombow dual brush pen set (6-greyscale) to play with! These pens have both brush & micron-like tips, making them handy to flip and change while inking. Here are some inked sketches and images.
By The way, these are water-based ink pens. The ink, I find, may bleed if you lay it on thick, and even if up close (two different shades touching) it may bleed together. Of course, you can smudge the ink together as easily.
This is the original fish (posted prev?) was with a micron, or fountain pen. I used more shades. Inking black was satisfying (the eyes on the candy creature below, etc), but the shades were good texture.
And here are The Brothers. Also done with Tombows. You can still see the photo-blue. LOL The heads were from another sketch, also for the 30 Character Challenge.
Oh yeah, the bottom line? I like alcohol based inks and how the dry. This water based ink dries quick enough to use, and not mix if you are careful. I suppose its good for mixing with water colors. That’s an experiment worth pondering.
Hope you liked it, thanks for visiting, and have a great art time!
