A friend of mine recently gave birth to a daughter and asked me to illustrate a picture for her where there was information about her daughters birth. This is a part of the illustration, I've removed some text when showing it online. The original is square, like most my pictures.
I tried changing from black ink to blue crayon this time. It was frustrating in a way because I had to sharpen the pen all the time and it just got smaller and smaller and smaller....
I really appreciate a sharp tip you see.
But ink can be so harsh, it's difficult to make subtile shades.
