In your first pic there on the left hand side it looks like a brush, but also a pen.  Looks like just water in it.  What is that exactly?  Are you using it to help blend and thin and spread color on the page?


Do you ink with a pen all the hard straight lines in the end?  A lot of the buildings still look penciled in.  


Very neat!  Love the work!

that's a water brush. basically has a handle full of water that i can dispense as much as needed to paint with. you can also fill them with ink if you want. but i use it for painting watercolor because i dont like having to constantly dip a brush into water. 


i used to ink everything, backgrounds included but have shifted away from it. now the only things i ink are the people. the buildings are very much just penciled in. only use the pencil for guidelines for the paint.
