johndanielharrington:



Postpone drawing the actual outline until you have an idea where it is. Just drawing any line isn’t going to make it the right one. Better to ignore drawing the contour altogether and focus on proportion, contrast, weight, the white shapes as well as the black shapes

The pen keeps the same amplitude and direction. Thus it performs similar to a broad nib pen and the contrast follows easily. Modulating the amplitude (shown later on) simulates the expansion of the flexible nib pen.

Similar to the sketching techniques shown by David Gates in Lettering for Reproduction.
