    Also...once you have the shape roughed ink pick out the lights and darks of the bush, and render those as simply as possible.

    The things I'm remembering.

    Thanks again, folks.

    I've got a few simple sketches on the go in pencil, which I'm hoping to add ink to and upload in the MI#18 thread. I'm still using up the ink from MI#17, so the pens aren't inked yet, but should be by the time Scooby get the ink to everyone else participating.

    Yes, that was the way of technical drafting when I went to college
    Pencil lines were covered with rapidrograph ink lines and all the graphite erased; if you needed color you filled the rapidograph lines but we were taught to use black 99% of the times
    Both the pencil and the eraser made a world of difference, I found Staedtler Lumograph and Faber Castell 9000 (dark green) pencils were the best and more consistent. There was a pencil brand from Czechoslovakia that made excellent pencils as well but can't rememeber the name (it was a a french name)
    You can also use a mechanical pencil, and use a good brands of leads.

    Depending on how heavy your hand is, the grade of pencil you will need.
    If you apply light pressure a H or 2H maybe enough, or you may need to go to 3H or 4H depending on your pressure

    Eraser is very important, I loved the ones from Rotring and Staedtler and you will spend probably 3x more time erasing carefully than drawing

    Thanks to all the fellow geeks for all your valuable input. I had a go at a couple of pics for Scooby's Mystery Ink #18, and I'm quite happy with how this one turned out in the end.

    It started off as just a sketch, but it was looking pretty rough to be honest. I put the pen down, and dry brushed the shading and texture, and it transformed it into something I was a lot more pleased with.

    Thanks guys. To me honest, I did cheat a bit. It was a sketch from someone else's artwork, not a photo, so I could see the technique used as well as the image.

    That seems like a great approach. One I think I will be adopting
