Ok, so this isn't really tonal, but it's something different. I've had a brushpen sitting around for a long time and I've never really done much with it, so I decided to play around with it the other night. This one came out alright...

These are the regular .5mm mechanical pencil...


  1. how did you get Jesus to pose for you in that first one?! haha.

    nice work man.

    i really like that last one.

  2. I was thinking the same thing. May those European artists really engrained that image of Jesus in our heads.

    I must say that I do really like the bold sharp lines you get out of the .5 mechanical. I have used that for sketches in the past and know how soft it is. Unless you are using a very hard lead???

  3. Yeah, I was thinking jesus when I saw the guy, he definitely fits the part.

    Jeremy - I use HB lead. I think the sharpness of the lines just comes from the direct mark making that I was talking about in the last post.
