Just completed this for coffee time project after deciding on pen & ink. 3rd time using this technique, after 20+years!! Technique needs improving, and I may add colour, comments welcome, please bear in mind, a learner here:D
BTW, left coffee logo vague, as couldn't confirm copyright issue.:cat:

Although the image is not very clear I think it is well drawn. Perhaps the cup of coffe is too long and narrow, the rest is OK for me. Keep drawing and post more please.

Thank you Dolors...:)
This cup really is long and narrow, guess that's why I like it...
really appreciate your encouragement , I have real problems with black and white images both scanning and photographed... and I have an expert photographer in my midst !!:D I may need to try another system to play around with it before posting.:cat:

This is a good ink drawing gnu. You rendered the metal band around the coffee container (pot) very well. It's hard to see any detail. Work on those scans and be sure to post more of your ink works :D

thanks Artdude, I'll have to try photographing these outside in daylight I think, I ususally do these drawings at night!:)

Nice drawing - especially the metal and glass. Maybe a little shading on the counter front would help to separate the two different planes, but this is a minor point :)

Nice work Gnu! I like the composition and the soft shading.
