Sketching in Ink

Sometimes, I like to go right to ink. All of these sketches were just thrown down on the paper with little regard to outcome. I love the scratchy feel of pen on paper. Usually, I draw pencil outlines, but not with theses. It helps build control, comfort, confidence and skill. 

A few of the weapons towards the end have pencil marks, to show the comparison. The symbol of Sol Invictus was penciled quickly and those flaws showed right up in ink. 


  1. You got all the drawing talent in the family. Much better than I could ever do! You are good enough to do book covers.

  2. Maybe. I just have a plain book cover for my titles. It's a parody of Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man.
