Pen sketches

After seeing The Blue Green Alien’s cool Inktober drawings, I bought a Uni Pin Fine Line and did a few sketches today. Sketching with pen is so different to pencil (I feel like I have a lot less control), but it’s fun. I’ll definitely keep doing it, amongst my pencil sketches, because it can only give me a stronger foundation for painting.

By the way, that weird thing in the middle of the page is either an alien slug with a single eye or the end of sawn-off stick; I’m not sure which. 🙂

I copied this drawing from the fantastic book 1000 Dog Portraits and am posting it here with the permission of the artist. The original uses a light colour wash for the background, but I couldn’t mix the right colour with the paints I have, so I imitated it with colour pencil.
