I finished watching all the episodes of "The Closer" recently and it was useful to finish this test journal.
I was using the Pentel Pocket brush pen to sketch, but then because I wanted to add shadows I used the Niji waterbrush to to pull watersoluble (dye-based and fugitive!) ink off a thick black Pentel Colorbrush.
This paper isn't sized for wet media, but I find if you limit your water you can get by with it. The surface of the paper drags on the brush and you can't push the washes around the way you can on watercolor paper, but it's still doable.
This short post is brought to you by my need to save my hands and shoulders for sketching at the Minnesota State Fair. I'll be back to writing volumes before you know it.
