I like th fish and the bird but in the picture they just seem out of place. But every thing else is amazing and your technique is wonderful.

Very surreal, how do you get that rough feel to it without overdoing the ink man?

VERY CAREFULLY. i hold the pen at an extreme angle, and scrape at the paper quickly and repeatedly. the effect depends completely on the pen i'm using, which is the reason i use the pen that i do.

Hahahah awesome man, which pen do you normally use? I could guess and say some kind of felt tip one. Must take patience.

black ink ball point actually. not like a bic though. it's black fluid ink, and it has a crimped ball point, not spring loaded like bics are. it's a standard technical pen, very fine.

yeah well... :iconsmug2plz:
lol. i get o.c.d. about detail and minutia. stuff like how the ink reacts when starting and finishing a line, is a big deal to me when drawing. i've been asked so many times about that. i should take some macro photos so i can show everyone what i'm talking about.

It's all in the detail my man. That would be awesome though, you should def do that. I'm sure there's loads of poeople who wonder who you get the lines. I'm a massive fan of how ink streams onto paper myself so I can totally relate. I only write with certain pens as I'm super fussy about how they connect with the paper :D what brand do you use dude?
