Sketchbook Page by SpireKat Sketchbook Page by SpireKat
Here's a direct scan of a page from my sketchbook. Mostly just ideas and small parts to be incorporated or turned into larger drawings later. I used a Sakura Microperm permanent ink pen. It has a nice bleeding effect that the standard Micron pen doesn't have.

I love how you shaded the top left object, was that with the pen too?  Wondered how you got that nice even tone there and elsewhere on the page.  Again, wow.  Very Nice.

never mind on the shading, I completely missed the answer below.

Thanks! Adding to my previous answer, the shading was actually done with a grey water based marker with parallel strokes. I tried not to overlap the lines too much because the coloring becomes noticeably darker where they overlap. I used alcohol based markers on some my other drawings and those tend to blend better but they can sometimes bleed the ink of the line drawing a bit.

Do you just lay out broad shapes and fill in the details?  Wow.

For most of the objects on this page, the final form was determined by the details as they were drawn a section at a time. Other than placing a few perspective lines, there wasn't too much blocking involved for these except for maybe a little for the service vehicle at the lower left quarter of the page.

The shading was done with a grey Prismacolor art marker.

Sorry, I just instinctively said Prismacolor but I believe it was some other brand that I had lying around.
