Some Brush Pen Sketches

Awesome shadows! I love how they aren't "outliney" (for lack of a better word). I mean, they seem to realistically wrap around the characters.

I also like the nice consistent values. Whenever I try to use markers or brush pens, they tend to make a splotchy, uneven mess. Do you use a particular type of paper for these?

Thanks Gaelen!

I use plain Ink-jet paper, however the splotchy effect could be related to the brand of pens you use. I use Faber-Castell pens. I also try to put down the ink in thin layers after the first layer has dried.
