How to sketch with Black Pen

Are Pens good for sketching?

Pen sketching can be more fun rather than markers or pencils because of it's fluidity. Pen's slide more than markers or pencils, so we can twist and turn on our moves easily! Pen's can be used for normal sketching, Designing, making cards ..etc. I have put some tutorials on How to sketch with markers and Graphite pencils and on How to built your skills in Designing! I have explained the basics of marker and designing skills in those tutorials. Here I will be dealing with Pen sketching and usage of pens in design building.

Apart from markers pens give a lot more detail look for you designs. Each lining drawn using pen can give you a look and feel of beauty! Now I have put some Pen Sketches explaining the details!


Pen sketch 1

Here I have sketched a boy's face outlining it heavy masculine details to give a more natural feeling. The eyes, face and hair are quite sharper doing with pen. These details are not noticed with markers. Then coming to the next part of the picture is that I have sketched roses and leaves to give an imaginary connection between the boy and it's beauty.

Pen Sketch 2

Here I have sketched a boy and a girl features, sharpened the feelings more to give a real look that they mean lot more than love! I have Highlighted every expression on their faces with the pen. I had shaded many parts of their hair, eyes and lips to give a real look!


I have drawn some leaves, A flower at the corner of the sketch. I have made the design more complicated by adding so small leaves inside the bigger ones to define a chemistry on sketching!
