I draw lots of sketches of the images I want to create with pen or pencil in my sketchbook or sheets of paper. When I feel ready to move on to a finished drawing, I pick a pen or brush. I usually use ink or water colours. Even though I make a plenty of preparations, often I have to do more than one finish[ed] drawing. It is not uncommon to repeat the same picture quite few times until I feel happy with the result.
