Hands and feet

I'm tying to depict light and shadow using a pen. Ignore the brown blotches, they are from previous sketches on the sketchbook :). Ink is very black, so in theory you should be able to make really dramatic high contrast drawings with them. Somehow, thumbing through my sketchbooks, my pen drawings don't reflect that.

My hand is somewhat cramped...


I used to use just a regular pen from the office, but last week I bought these Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens. I don't think it's that much more different in terms of what you can draw out of them. But the Pitt pens sure feels nice to hold and to make a mark on paper. Which makes me want to draw more. Which, I suppose, is the point. 

Can't sleep, so I drew my feet
