Just did a quick sketch of this lovely place, Jiufen, Taiwan. I love all the red lanterns there. I feel like I'm not doing justice to the place here.
Note to self: should get a proper ink brush.

I don't have any ink and brush with me right now. The closest thing that I got is the Kuretake ZIG Clean Color brush pen, which is waterbase. It probably doesn't work as well but I just wanted to give it a try as soon as I could. This is my first time drawing with a brush and I'm basically totally new to this whole sketching thing.
Challenge 1: 15 minutes I first sketched the whole thing and then went with smaller frames. I made a mess there since my hands were a bit damp and the brush pen wasn't waterproof.
Challenge 2: 10 minutes I think I went overboard with the cables there.
Challenge 3: 5 minutes I totally forgot that I could have just captured smaller frames of the image. For the 3 challenges I always started with the whole image first before going into the smaller details. I think I basically just made some random strokes there.
Thank you so much for the lesson. I really enjoyed doing the challenges. I did all 3 without stopping as it was so much fun. I used to think that sketching would require many details and never had the confidence to do it but you totally proved me wrong. I was looking for new hobby to pick and I guess I found one now!
