7 minute poses drawn directly with Faber-Castell Brush Pen on animation paper.

I'm really trying to get geared up again for some painting. It's crazy but, for me, direct brush pen drawing actually helps.

Wow I didn't think standard animation paper could handle heavy duty ink work this well. I thought that it was so thin that it would bleed right through it.

Very Cool drawings, from life or imagination?

Sick lines & poses man. I liek the middle one on the second page best. Have you seen Craig Thompson's work? Comic writer/illustrator, absolute wizard w/ brush pens:

@ stephen - faber-castell pitt brush pens are in fact not as heavy duty as you'd think. They're not in the same category as say a Sharpie or Charpak or Tria. They don't bleed on any paper.
These are from life. A great model that goes to all the major studios and art schools in California.

@ libra bear - Thanks, man...you hit it right on the nose. "choice" is what I'm all about with these studies. When I say I'm trying to gear up for painting, I want to be able to make the same linear statements but in massive strokes of bold color. It's gonna be nerve racking and fun all at the same time.

@ stuart - thanks for the lines. Pose credit goes to the model. You like the headless one, huh? (shrug - :)
Thanks for hipping me to Craig's Work. I like the work on his blog alot. He's definitely using a couple of different brushes. The pen I use has a rubber nib. I see the stuff he's doing has more drag and texture and that's coming from brush hairs...something I plan to mess with when dem paint brushes start comin' out. BLA-DOW!!!

I don't think I noticed he was headless - I just noticed the pull in the wrinkles of the fabric lolz
