This a page from my comic book moleskine. Its drawn with rapidographs, pit pens and a pentel brush pen.
Wow, I loved the detail on my first look. But when I came back to it I realized that it tells an entire story. This is AMAZING!
I’m also not familiar with your tools, would you explain them to me?
The main pen I use is a German made technical drawing pen called a rapidograph. I mostly use the .01 which is the smallest they make. http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/rotring_Rapidograph.html
PIT pens are made by faber and castel, you should be able to get them from most art shops. They’re not too expensive.
The other one I used on this was a pentel pocket brush pen. Its the cheapest brush pen I know of, again you should be able to pick one up pretty easily from a local art shop. Re-fills can be a bit pricey though.
Let me know if you want to know any more. I am a bit of a pen geek so am always happy to blab away about them
I had no idea that pens could come that tiny! I’ve got a regular thin pen that’s .5, so one of those would be a massive improvement. There’d be so much more room on the page.
It’s a bit pricey for me right now, (trying to save up for my first car!), but I think one of those brush pen’s would help add dimension to my pictures.
Thanks for the info!
If your on a budget go try some micron’s. They’re not refillable but they are very popular. I use them a fair bit. http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/Sakura-Pigma-Micron-Drawing-Pen-005.html#a21084
There are only a handful of artists left who uses pens. Most artists have switched to new technology with their sketch tables and all. But nothing beats the old fashion way. Great work Christian.
