Hi, this is my first post on this forum, and I'd like to reach out to other ink-slingers to trade ideas, techniques, and critiques. I'll insert a couple of images here, and I also set up a small album on this site.

I ink with a variety of dip pens and Copic Mutliliners for the most part, but I'd like to get better with a brush. I'm doing stuff right now for an upcoming exhibit that will feature nature drawings and some portraits. My big influences are Franklin Booth, Gustav Dore' and Albrecht Durer. My day job is software engineering and I live in the mountains of Colorado in the US.

So now you know me...let's talk ink. I'd love any critique anyone has to offer. There are bigger versions of these (and more) over on my deviantART page; this forum has some pretty tight limits on what you can put in an album.

Nicely done i used to play in the ink pond. I was taught by a terrific ink handler, His Name was Henry C.Pitz, even wrote a book on how to use the pen & brush with ink.

@AZACRYLIC: Thank you. Great info for Henry Pitz; I had never heard of him before. I will check out his book. You were actually taught by him?

@Jeff: Thank you, glad to be here.
