Rediscovery

I always kind of knew that difference in line weights was critical, so for example the outer contour of the foreground objects in the picture should always be thicker than the inner lines, or the background.

I tried the brush, and sometimes it worked, but more often it proved elusive. So, I decided to approach the problem with multiple differently-sized nibs. Of course, I'll still be using brush extensively, but for different contours I'll go with switching between nibs.
