Pen and Ink Practice

I drew a free form design today, with one shape eclipsing the others. I inked in a maze-line design in this forward most form. Within the divisions of the other forms I used different pen strokes. Each type of stroke produced a different effect. Some surfaces became concave, some convex. The surfaces that remained flat vary in tone from the spacing of the ink strokes.  I changed the character of my maze by shading it with varying degrees of arcs. The ones I completed remind me of the sulci of the brain.

This composition is not yet finished. I have to decide where to take it from here.
