Ink-pen Drawings

These are my first attempts at ink-pen drawings; they aren't the best, but they turned out relatively okay. I got really inspired after seeing some fabulous ink drawings on Google so I tried my own. Ink pen drawings are a bit tricky though since I can't erase them. On these two drawings I just started right off with a pen so maybe that's why there were a lot of mistakes on them. I think they would have turned out better if I started a rough sketch with a pencil first - but then that ruins the spontaneity though.

This was the first one, and I messed it really bad on her eyes. They aren't symmetrical with each other in that perspective, with one being way bigger than the other and my alignment of them is off. I think I should start with the left eye just because it's easier for me to coordinate accordingly using the right on (from my eye perspective).

This one was a bit better although I did mess up on the mouth a bit. It was supposed to be from a self-portrait but I don't think I was highly successful LOL.

I wish I good draw! I used to be not too bad when I was younger but I've lost it.
Hope you have a great weekend.

I found you via Make Room for Living so came by to say hi. Your ink pen drawings turned out nice I am impressed. I tend to smear my work so have to work with a paper under my hand. The last few years I had done most work of my design work on computers, but I still enjoy sketching when I have time. Cathy
