A Revelation

oh! no wonder the cartooning teachers hate microns! dip pens (I’ve yet to remember the real name for them) are so much nicer. I kind of like if for the same reason I really like using the uniball pen that I probably shouldn’t be: it seems to attack the paper instead of just lying on top of it like microns do…and it’s so dark. not that I could do this all the time, because it would be so inconvenient to take out all this stuff for a random sketch, but….aaaah. so nice. I want to be able to do this well. can’t wait for that inking class.

I kind of have an obsessive love of how dark black ink is wet, compared to from a micron or something.

I am hardcore geeking out over this.
