This is awesome, looks straight out of a novel! It reminds me of the pen and ink drawings they did for DnD before they started doing oil paintings.

Thanks. It's funny that you mentioned the old DnD illustrations because I recently started feeling like my drawings remind me of those long off days.

If you haven't seen it already, I highly recommend checking out the documentary Eye of the Beholder,The Art of Dungeons and Dragons. It's on amazon prime I think, and of course a bay of pirates. They interview some legends that did the drawings for the old DnD books and dragon magazine, Jeff Easely, Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson's son, it's incredibly inspiring. It's what inspired me to actually go out and try taking art seriously. While they discuss the old pen and ink drawings in depth, the documentary is moreso about oil paintings than anything else, but still a fun watch!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
