Line, please.

Lately I've been exploring my curiosity in line. I find myself torn between the brush stroke that I've grown more accustomed to from working in Flash (using a tablet), and the single width line I get from a uniball pen. The good thing is that when I break out the pen nibs, I usually get something inbetween: enough variation so that I can get a thick or thin line depending on which tip I use (and there is some variation built in). Two comic artists that I'm fond of, Ron Regé Jr. (line) and Seth (brush), appropriately represent opposing ends of the spectrum. My brain seems to adjust to the tool that I'm using, offering differing results. Below are some recent pages from my sketchbook.

I really like how you kinda ignored the fold in your sketchbook. I feel like that's the biggest flaw in these kind of books. (Maybe that's why I can never complete an entire one...once you get to the end it's like the pages attack you) But now...I am inspired to conquer the crease!

I like Seth, too. Palookaville is one of my favorites.
