Just playing around with a brush in my sketchbook. I guess I shouldn't be afraid of brushwork as much as I am...it does create a wonderful line. When I work in pen and ink, I normally use pen nibs—which don't give me quite the thick to thin line variation, but I'm more comfortable working with a pen as a tool. And I can achieve the same line with tablet in Flash. Actually, these were created with a brush marker...so I am still cheating.
