A longer drawing with the Speedball Crow Quill Pen and Acrylic Ink. Not sure if/what I’ll do for color- I kinda like it as it is, plus this ink is NOT WATER FAST! This is very important to remember.
I had my little ivy houseplant next to me while drawing the whole time, and I think having such a real-word reference helps me improve. Even if I’m not drawing exactly the arrangement of leaves that was in front of me, I can see the way that ivy likes to grow and incorporate that into my drawing.
Here you can see me starting to get the hang of how to make different line weights with this particular type of pen.
