Hmmm, this guy makes me think... good or evil.

Sure hope he's no dentist! I'd never go back.

This is pretty cool. I've always liked the mad scientist/professor characters. All you have to work with as a costume is a lab coat so you really have to pick features/accessories carefully. You ever use Koh-i-noor's "RapidoCraft" pens? They're steel tip pens that are refillable and you can use them with really opaque inks.

Hi Adam! ~ I know, I can't even get myself to the nice dentists. Forget one looking like this!

Art ~ Thank you! I still need to crank up the creep factor I think.

Barak! ~ I'll be making so much more. :)

Hi tikimexican! ~ Thanks! I already want to redraw his coat ;)
I had a set of Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Pens a while back, but eventually it became handier to buy and replace Sakura Pigma Micron Pens. I wasn't really going through them that quickly. Now I'm using a refillable brush pen and practicing with the line weights.

Nifty. What type of pen are you using? I used to sketch in the field with kuretake and ackermen pens but the japanese print shop that sold them went out of business. Since then I buy the brush tipped sakuras, but there's too little control as I think they're mainly for writing kanji. What are you using and where are you getting them?

Try jetpens.com

and jstationery.com

The pen I used for this is a Pentel [XGFKP-A]Pocket Brush Pen.
