My ink sketches are definitely looser, and I'm more confident. Very few pencil guidelines were used. It's great to see some progress and know there's hope for more. Ah, more practice ahead for me.
I'm not concerned with my use of watercolor pencils at this time. They're just a way to add color.
My Staedtler Pigment Liner gave out while doing these. I've barely used the pen! I switched to the Micron pen. I have more Staedtler pens, but I will not buy more.
