Ideas Revisited

I had so much fun drawing the "sprouts of ideas" on the previous post that I started a close-up of them on another page in my sketchbook.
I am trying out a couple of different drawing pens (all fine liner). I truly LOVE the Pitt Pens but I got to thinking that I might be missing out on other really good pens by not experimenting with different ones.
This is a mix of Pitt and Copic Multiliners.
If you look closely (and rest assured that I did!) you can see the difference in the thickness of the lines.
I love the thinner lines that I can get with the different sizes of the Copics but I haven't tried them to see if they are really as waterproof as they advertise to be.
I'll try them out and let you know what I find.

I really like these organic shapes. Some pens I just found recently are Sharpie's new pen that doesn't bleed through when you write with it. I've only found a fine tip so far and there are a few basic colors. The black I have tried with watercolor and it didn't bleed when washed over on watercolor paper. I saw a smidgeon of smearing when I erased over it on drawing paper so I need to give it more than a moment to dry first I guess before erasing. They are very cheap and available at Walmart and Target. I like it better than Pitt as it writes with less skipping at least for me.

I love the variation of sizes. I am a Sakura Pigma Micron pens. They come in many tip sizes and colors. Even a brush tip that is wonderful for adding intersity to pieces. They are waterproof,fade proof,acid free archival pens. Just a little food for thought !
