I planned on doing some inking so that I would loosen up a bit with my lines, which worked a little. I practiced drawing with a HUGE nib and a regular sized one, I'm pretty comfortable using a pen compared to brush work. I saw this Paul Pope talk at comic con and thought I'd give the brush a go. Turns out that the brush is a bastard compared to the pen. The first drawing is done with a medium sized nib and the second is inked with a brush (Windsor & Newton series 7, No.2). The brush is a lot more sensitive than the nib, which I'm not used to, so my brush work is quite tight since I'm being really cautious with it. I'll be working on getting a bit more fluidity with the brush, until I get it I shall not be a happy chappy.
