First brush pen lettering

Just sharing some of my initial practice pages. 


I've been really struggling with the Tombow pen and finding it hard to get my thin strokes thin enough. I've bought a Sakura brush pen which seems to be more flexible, so my next step is to try that out and see if I have more success.


I'm definitely happier with the Sakura -- my hand still isn't as steady as I'd like, but I'm definitely getting nicer contrast in the strokes. (And I like this colour better too!)


I've been trying out some simple words and phrases. I'm still figuring out my own style, but I'm getting more confident with it, and practicing with the Sakura has made the Tombow a little easier too.
