YouTube Video Resources: Alphonso Dunn on Inking Without an Undersketch

Alphonso Dunn demonstrates drawing complex scenes accurately in pen and ink without a pencil undersketch.

Alphonso Dunn is one of the first artists I started to learn from. Dunn's YouTube channel is one of the best around for learning drawing, pen and ink or otherwise. I daresay these lessons are useful for every artist, since a strong drawing foundation helps with everything else.

Here he demonstrates drawing confidently in ink without pencil.

To this day, pen and ink is still my go-to medium for art that I can manage when I'm recovering from chronic illness flare-ups.
