On the grass

I love the brush pen for drawing quick figures, like these I drew out on the campus during my lunch break at school. The pen gives me an expressive line that I can start and stop, and it’s wonderful for marks that go from thick to thin. It’s also perfect for creating a dark area really quickly. Tiny details are more difficult though. For example, the little turns of the brush that you have to do when drawing eyes and other facial features are more difficult. I’ll be sorry when the weather gets colder and all the students move inside to the cafeteria. It won’t be half as much fun to draw them hunched over their phones in a dimly lit space.

  2. I’ll have to try using a brush pen for figures. I usually use something that produces a thinner line, but I like the way these look.
