But I don't class your art as amateur.
Bite off more than you can chew.
Then chew like Hell ! ! !

Don't know if it's cool that I post a few here, their not even half as good as Chinczyk's
(sorry for the clipping, my scanner sucks)
And some non-plane related pics…
I can tell you like drawing trains.
You and chinczyk2 have two distinct methods of drawing.
He uses the method I used (a long time ago). It takes time to learn not to draw or sketch everything of the subject. Learn to leave just enough out to let the ole brain fill it in.
Like on the lighter side of an object, you can put in just enough so that the brain can finish it. Ink sketches that I did were rough drafted with a very hard pencil (one can barely see the pencil) then spent most time with an eraser and re-sketching until satisfactory and then using the ink.
Enough of today's lesson

Also do you sketch and then ink or just pen first.

I read a few books about Louis Agassiz Fuertes, a bird artist from back in the early 1900's, and in a candid conversation he had with a student artist, he said that you do most of your "inking" or "water colors" with an eraser. ( I know that sounds crazy, but it is not as it sounds,it's an amazing process once you get your head around it).
When satisfied with the draft, then you can finish with the ink. The right paper is needed (as well as the right hardness of pencil). You need paper that will withstand use. Also a correct eraser.
You can ink over the pencil draft and erase the pencil when needed.
When I first started, was using the old primitive Rapidiograph pens, with different sized nubs. Then came along the newer pens (as referred to in earlier posts) sizes run from about .005mm(?) to 1mm.
Even if one thinks they can't draw well, truth is they can. It's a combination of desire, love, hand and eye coordination, and practice, practice, practice.

…… main effort is not about drawing, but about what NOT to draw.
Exactly, You stated it right to the point!

I thought I would post a few inks from back in the 1980's. I haven't done anything since mid 90's.
Never messed with planes though.
Please carry on, I love to see peoples artwork (and so do others).

Eastwood? Good drawings Sir!
Not Eastwood, a little ole lady in Bartlesville had husband with birthday and he was in love with pictures on a calendar with content from some guy that was famous for his cowboy books.(can't think of author). She picked 3 pics from calendar and had me do ink sketches for his BD present.

That is very nice, man! How thick is the ink writer and how large format of paper did you use?
