Empty Cans

I've been working on another pen and ink drawing, this time of empty beer cans. I tried a few different things this time but they didn't really work out so in the end it's once again many layers of cross hatching. But I remembered lessons from the drawings class about all tone being layers and I realised that the kind of marks you make with the pen aren't necessarily as important as get the tone (and graduation of tone) right. So in the end I'm happy with the way this one turned out.

  1. The cans are ok. But those leaves in the background are super good dude. Less rubbish, more nature.
