I got new toys!

June 23, 2010

I picked up some gorgeous new art machines today, because I am becoming Serious about making comics.

I got a size 0 brush which I immediately lit on fire, ground into a fine powder, and shot into space. I hate brushes.

But I also got a set of dip pens which I have already fallen head over heels in love with.
I inked an old drawing to test my favorite nib:

The result is not incredibly different from my technical pen, but definitely more fluid and expressive in small ways that I really like. And I haven’t even used the other nibs yet. Oh, and the actually inking process is about five thousand times quicker and more fun than with tech pens.
Score!
