I've decided recently to undertake a new challenge; I suspect my comfort with the ballpoint pen may be stunting (comfort is for old ladies!) SO in my daily field drawing and doodling I'm only going to use those tools that I use for my comic work. I'm trying to close the disparity between my comic pages and my sketchbook and I think this is worth the ol' college try. So it's microns, japanese pens, brush, brush pens, etc for drawing and the ballpoint is going to stay on the sidelines for awhile. So you folks can see my updates and let me know if my progress is pathetic or not.
*grey tones were added later in photoshop to help organize this mess.
