Pen and Ink Art

I read somewhere that pen and ink art uses about the same technique as pencil drawing. Let me assure you, going by my own experiences, that it is not.

In order to create different tones between light and dark, you really need to have some knowledge of how to apply the ink. With a pencil it is just a matter of adding some more pressure, to find the darker shade of grey that you are looking for.

I have worked with pen and ink way back when I was in college and I never could get warmed up to it. The best art I created, while using ink, were some unique, oddly shaped ink blotches. Grin.

You may be more skilled at it then I am, so don't hesitate and put pen to paper.
