More Fude experiments

Remember I talked about my new Sailor Fude pen? It's going to take me a good while to get used to it. And then, what do I do? Well, I didn't order just one pen, but two, one with a 40degrees nib, and another one with a 55degrees nib. So it's going to take me twice as long, or twice as many sketches at least, to practise line. The 55degrees nib pen is quite a challenge, actually - the line is so thick when you hold it low, and I haven't yet figured out how to smoothly move from thick to thin and back again. But it has a lovely painterly quality, with really strong black lines. I'll have to find a way to draw that makes the most of that quality!
