I've already confessed~! I know it's a bad habit~! But~
I just can't stop doing it~! Not only is it fun, but it is
quite addictive once you get the hang of it and learn
to trust your own skills. Try it for a month~ and~
if it doesn't boost your confidence level ? Pick a
fight with someone a foot smaller than you and
kick the crap out of them ;~j
Sometimes I will use a ballpoint pen LIKE a pencil, by
not pressing down too much you can really control
the lightness or darkness of the line weight...
With a brush~ all bets are off~!
Either way, when you try to envision something
beforehand and then set out to capture it on
paper, there is no margin for error. This
can be quite exhilarating ~! Especially
when you start to like what you're
doing, and then fear messing up~!
Still, as Robert Crumb so profoundly
put it: 'It's only lines on paper !'
