At Gen Con this year I was asked to do a playmat commission by a satisfied customer for whom I had done a smaller playmat sketch years ago. I accepted with a bit of trepidation. Playmat sketches combine a couple of art fears of mine: inking, which I don't do often enough, and the inability to erase or otherwise cover up mistakes.
I started with a rough pencil sketch and then used Micron pens in sizes 005, 01, 03 and 05 to complete the drawing. It turned out to be a fun challenge and I enjoyed working on it. And luckily my customer was satisfied once again!
