Pen and ink, plus watercolor ATCs:

I am not very good at drawing yet - I have to practice a lot more, so when I do a pen and ink work it takes me a long time, and I need tons of photo references.  These two were good enough to send out in swaps:

These are good for just beginning. I like the vibrant colors you used. I like your positive attitude. You have to start somewhere. Smiley I just started drawing not too long ago as well.
