Zac, excellent crosshatching!  I really like the step-by-step progress photos of the vase.  You're doing very well!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Tony Im planning on getting some color ink pens, Ive found one or two that I liked just havent made any decisions yet.  Do you use color? if so is there a particular brand that you like?

I've seen lots of colour application tools like pens, markers and inks but, I haven't used any inks yet. I was reading about different types only recently. It all depends on what a person is wanting to achieve. There's some acrylic based inks that look interesting and I think these dry waterproof (need to check that again though) so, you could use watercolour paints over them for gradated work.
I've got some coloured pens like these:

jrhallo36-  :thankyou: .  I used to allways use hatching but with this ink I love how the cross hatching looks.
 
Denise 320-  :thankyou: .  Ive made some improvements, still not as good as I want to be though.
 

Tony-  Those acrylic based inks sound interesting; Im gonna look into those.  I was looking through the art store trying to if there were any tutorials on ink and I found one called "Pen and ink washes" (heres the link- http://www.paintbasket.com/paintbaskettv/online-art-class.php?class=155)  it looks like dennis uses water color paint to color his but Im not for sure as there was lonly a few lines and I think he uses water color but I aint for sure.

Lesson #9 in the live w/c classes is ink & wash. You might want to check that out.

What is ink and wash?  Is that where you draw with ink and then color/paint in the drawing using watercolor?

 :thankyou: Val, the two book drawings arent my best, but I wanted to see how good I could do a book in that perspective.  Still need some practice though.

Ah Zac! having a 'block' as to what to draw is a right pain. Inspiration is what's needed. Spend some time on Google Images to see if you can be inspired then, force yourself to choose a subject and go for it. Sketch rough then, see if the enthusiasm is there to go for a more detailed version.  :)

Some berries in ink:
 
I used a very loose style of shading much like what you see in alot of Albrecht Durers work.  My didnt turn out as good as his, but its okay I guess.  For some reason it just looks dirty.  Oh well, It was fun doing it.
