Tools: Waterbrush

For this new series of sketches I am putting aside my traditional sable brush and ink and testing out a waterbrush which I filled with Higgin's Black Magic. It has it's limitations,but there are some pluses too. Even though I can't get as precise a line with the waterbrush it saves some time not having to dip the brush in the inkwell in dragging the brush to remove excess ink. It is also quite portable. So I think I will be using the water pen for sketches and reserve the sable for my comic book pages.

  1. One of our Sketchcrawlers had a waterbrush (maybe you saw it there too). It was very cool, I've been meaning to get one.
