Just another practice sketching session

Remember kids keep on drawing as often as you can! Just some practice doodles with my 2 mm leadholders loaded with my preferred Uni leads to set an example.

Using a black gel pen to doodle some manikins as warm up exercises for sketching directly with ink pens.
Doodled these few faces with a brand new Pitt brush pen.
The main thing I was reminded on this sketching session was that of the rather short useful life of the sharp point of the brush nib of a Faber Castell Pitt Artist brush pen. After sketching just these two sheets with a light touch, the tip of the brush nib had already started to show signs of wear getting a little blunt. No need to use the nib flipping trick just yet, but I just wish the Pitt nib would held its original shape a bit longer.
