Drawing Eyes in Pen and Ink

I haven’t worked much with pen and ink but I hat a lot of fun tonight drawing eyes from digital photos with one of my new ink pens.

I was actually surprised that I did so well with these because ink is so un forgiving and I”m not even working on a good paper. This is just regular old newsprint. It doesn’t happen often but my wife looked at this page and actually said she liked it.
