Doodle Swap beginnings

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

I’m doing the Doodle Swap this round and did not realize I had to do TEN doodles (way to go reading things.) Still – very fun. Also very fun to get doodles in the mail (three so far!) So I’ve started doodling, though one of these is for IF and I am not sure if the guy in the lower left is going to survive. With a business trip Sunday through yesterday and lots of work to do, 2.5″ x 3.5″ is about the best I can manage, so hooray for size limits!

Click for quite a lot larger. The pencil is all still there, sorry. It’s several kinds of pens – a nib or two I’m getting used to (mostly the Gillott 303, possibly some of the Nikko G), Pentel Brush Pen, Micron .005 in a couple places and also my Namiki Falcon fountain pen which I wasn’t sure if I would like and wound up using constantly (with a converter so I can use Noodler’s ink)

little watercolors

these are a few little old watercolors that I started for the letter “A.” What I did like about these is that I managed to be a little looser/spur-of-the-moment with them, which is difficult for me. Crowquill pen and ink (speedball) with Yarka half-pan watercolors.

a pen & ink

I don’t think I scanned the final-final of this, unfortunately, since it is now given away. But this was fairly close. Pen and ink – speedball ink and a few different nibs. Next time I’m over by the pen jar I’ll take a look at the numbers.
