Catching up on the blog world...
I like the quality of the Pentel color brush when it gets this drybrush texture.
It's very similar to drawing with the "side" of the pencil.
You can do very quick studies this way - stay focused on the gesture work instead of noodling the paper
to get a tighter image.

Here are a couple of my armor designs for Tars Tarkas for the 2005 version of the John Carter of Mars film.
It incorporated makeshift protection from found objects and salvaged armor parts. I studied some of the Samurai and other tribal knot tying techniques and included them as a way to latch and bind various parts together with sinew, found textile or a kind of plant fiber.
