hi sean,i've tried the tria brushpen with india ink (w&n), and its good, but the ink flow is too heavy and sometimes it's hard to have a good control on thin lines...any seggestion for a dumb wannabe? :Psorry for my "ugly" english.
For these sketches I used a Pentel brush pen. It doesn't seem to have another name, it's all black and takes a disposable cartridge. For comic pages I've been using a Pentel Color Brush #101. You control the ink flow by squeezing the cartridge and can get thin and fat lines quite easily.
thanks sean!now the difficult part will be most probably to find them;)
Why do you use a brush pen instead of a brush (for comic pages)? Have you found a brush pen that lasts (all I ever tried wore out much faster than real brushes)?
I used real brushes for years but the quality just doesn't seem to be there any more. I'm lucky if I get three or four pages out of a sable. The Pentel Color Brush I'm using at the moment is still good after more than 100 pages.
