Nib doodles

Nib doodles - student project

I've always loved to doodle, and that was my first instinct when I resumed drawing after a many long years.

I have some felt-tip ink pens, so I'm already familiar with doodling with them. So, since the project is also about experimenting and trying new things, I decided to give the ol' pen and nib a doodling try!

What I liked about this experience was the different widths I was able to achieve because of the nib, which I think adds interest to the doodle.

The one thing I didn't quite like, actually, was inking using the nib, because the very fine and hard tip scratches the standard sketchbook paper I drew in. It didn't damage the paper, but it did wear some parts off.

That was fun!

Next, I'm going to try coloring some parts in with watercolor. Let's see how that goes. ;)
