I’m on a kick drawing birds with water soluble ink. Reference photos are usually from Paint My Photo.
Along with my trusty Moonman Mini, I used a refillable brush pen, a Kuretake Sumi. The ink is Herbin Poussiere de Lune, such a pretty plum.
I also drew this Common Grackle, and I took more pictures of the process, albeit in poor lighting. The paper is Canson Multimedia, which isn’t bright white, but it’s not even close to cream, which is how it looks below.
Below I tried a ball point pen. I scribbled too much, but it was a fun, quick experiment.
