Keeping in Practice

Brought out a few pen nibs last night after realizing that it's been quite some time since I'd done any work with much more than a brush. Since I'd rather not get too rusty at using any of the tools I have sitting next to my drawing table I figured I'd give 'em a shot again, and use up a bit of the ink I had sitting out at the same time. Waste not want not, right?

The thin lines here were done with a Hunt 512 bowl point (which is actually intended for ruling and lettering) since I'm afraid I've never actually had any luck with the "industry standard"of the Hunt 102 crow quill. I'm a bit heavy handed I suppose, and always tend to snap 102s on the page. I still have some crow quill nibs in a drawer somewhere, but since I didn't need to angry up my blood before bed it's probably best that I left 'em there.
