Studies in Ink

Computer's acting a bit funny. Reformatted and still acting quite odd. Disk Drive also doing strange things, so I can't really do more studies from Acland. Bridgman is still great though, copying his stuff and trying to see if the info will click.

Thinking of switching the medium I'm using though. Been using those Sakura Micro pens, most of these are in 02 black. They work a treat for the first couple of strokes, but...the tip starts to wear out (quickly) to where you can only do those very important gestural strokes by holding the pen in a stabbing position until its utter demise when the tip disappears completely.

Looking through a few blogs and forums, looks like a crow quill pen is in order.
