For a while now when I sketch landscapes or stuff in museums, I've been trying to use a brush pen. Mike D once told me that he thought sketching in pen forced you to make more informed decisions about where you were putting your lines. I think he's totally right - it makes me really look at the size and space relations of something first, rather then just searching for them with lots of sketchy lines. When I have pencil (or an undo command) I have a tendency to just flail around with lines until they become what I want - putting a line where I want it the first time is much harder.
