Con Sketches

Done with my new favorite con drawing tool, a flat brush along with some brush pens and white out. But mostly flat brush. Love the broad strokes it can do, I can be more expressive with the line work. These were done inside my 2009 art book. I actually found most of these online since I didn't get a chance to take my own photo's. So if you got one of these and can send me a photo, that would be greatly appreciated!
