New technique: I abandoned pencil in favor of drawing entirely with fountain pens. With my two Pilot Falcons - I do the sketch in Iroshizuku Chiku-Rin (green) and the final line work in Noodlers Black on Rhodia dot grid paper.
Next I'll scan the drawing, reduce the green sketch - and color it in Corel Painter. This is similar to how some comic artists ink over a non-photo blue pencil sketch which isn't picked up by the camera.
I've arrived at a hybrid analog/digital process where I get the best of both worlds: draw with fountain pens (FUN!) and color in Photoshop/Painter (FUN!) These are the tools I enjoy most.
PS. Beer of the night was Samuel Adams Rebel Grapefruit IPA... and I think I had one too many.
