The Brush Pen's amazing results

It has been a while since i've posted here. I've started drawing lately, more into using those japanese brush pens that are creating those accidental tones and shades that brings the perfect imperfections to drawings. I've been skipping the pencil details and just going straight with the brush pens after I create my initial marks. 

This is one of the concepts i've done so far which I then entered into Threadless. Please feel free to vote @

Pencil Drawings - Use a Ballpen

One way to gain confidence in your drawings is to use a ball point pen! Using this medium will give you a sense of urgency and finality to your piece. You will surely create a lot of mistakes and some blotches (just like the one you see on the cheek of my drawing), but this practice will give you skill in the long run. You will realize how much pressure to apply for each stroke so your drawing wont look like a scribbled mess. This is as raw as it gets, no erasures or Ctrl+Z's involved. Have fun!

* Do share any piece you've made in the comments section. I'd love to see them.

Pencil Drawings - Draw using Reference

Drawing using reference is ok. Most illustrators including myself need to use any reference to draw something unfamiliar. It is a process of teaching your brain what lines you need to do for the structure you're trying to create. As you see in the drawing below, I've looked up some images of school buses.  I then chose to use the traditional bus and mix it with a newer face of a bus. Added the typical black stripes located on the sides of the bus, and there you have it. A slightly confused man who sees the bus thinking to himself "...but today's Saturday?!".

Pencil Drawings - Borrow a pencil

I have this strange habit that If I use someone's pencil to draw, the outcome looks better. It may be that I feel im not responsible for doing a good job if I use it. It could also be the spontaneity that happens and you had to do it right the first time because you need to return it soon.
