    Ball point pens are very good for creating cross-hatch shading. Do a series of simple drawings, but spend a lot of time shading them in with various cross-hatch techniques. Make them rich and dark with different textures. The darker you make the shading, the fewer drawings you'll have do actually create.

    Do you know what "cross-hatching" is? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkGGpxQu-PE

    Try stippling too.http://www.artyfactory.com/pen_and_ink_drawing/ink...

    While some people just use cross hatching and/or stippling as ways of shading, you can create entire drawings this way, and it will use up a lot of ink!

    umm look around. draw people, flowers, draw scenery, look on photo bucket for different pictures and draw your own version. those are just a few ideas.
