This week I decided to do something different and try a ink-only painting. I did the below sketch at the weekly Meetup I go to with a brush pen. 

Initial sketch

Brush pens are great for doing basic sketches of ink paintings though you can't get different tones. I can't wait to get my Cintiq Companion tablet so I can do digital sketches quickly like this.

Below is a quick draft painting I did on Sunday to see how i liked the composition on the actual paper. After that I did some studying to see how I should actually approach this painting. I think I'm going to do a similar scene for next week to work on improving my technique.
