Pen line

There was a sale at the art store the other week so I had to make myself go to it.
I don't buy much there anymore because a lot of my work is digital these days. So I have to remember my roots. Pencil, ink, paper.
This one is a quickie like a lot of them , and it's just a pencil sketch with some inking done with one of those Hunt drawing nibs . I used to use actual India ink in the past. Now Im using Acrylic india ink. It's not as thick and black as real India Ink but it has some advantages.
First it doesn't clog up quickly. So it's easier to keep drawing without cleaning the nib every minute. Second, it seems to dry a little faster. And it seems to last longer in the bottle.
The head on this sketch is about 2 inches high. Drawn in my Aquabee sketchbook.
