Hi. I am interested in producing my own animation and comics and doing this professionally.
I need to order some drawing pens from Walmart.com. I am on a fixed income- I am using a Walmart credit card with a $300 spending limit.
I want a set of black ink,quality drawing pens with varying nibs, and I don't want to spend a lot of money on them.
I would prefer to get a pack that has at least 8 pens in it, but no less than 6.
I read and saw some reviews for some brands out there- the three best ones out there are Sigma Micron, Prismacolor, and Faber-Castle.
I was trying to find all black ink, 8-pc packs of Sigma Micron pens with varying nibs on Walmart.com. I haven't found any on there yet.
Which brand and set of pens SHOULD I
Should I get a pack in one of these brands, or in another brand?
Based on what I've seen and read online, I'm inclined to get a pack of Sakura Micron pens- a set of black ink pens with varying nibs that have at least 8 pens in the pack.
I don't really care for Prismacolor or Faber-Castel too much.
I've seen 10- and 12-pc black ink Sakura Micron drawing pens with varying nibs for sale online but not on Walmart.com.
If there's a brand that's better than Micron, and I can get a pack of black ink pens with varying nibs that have at least 8-pc, please let me know.
STA pigment liner pens look like good pens to get.
I know some people like to draw using brush pens. I don't really care for those and I don't think I really need those right now.
What drawing pens do the pros use? The ones most pro animators and pro comics people use?
Please help- thank you.
Its all about the guy holding the pens. "Youre only as good as your equipment" is a marketing phrase.
I used to make my own dippy pens out of sharpened or edged dry willow branches or even bamboo.
They both made super contour lines so I could change thickness of the lines while drawing.
Did you ever try scratch-board using rigged up old DARTS?? , they achieve some radical effects.
This is an easy one for me. Rapidograph pens. I adore them.
I have a set of Rapidographs .04 through 6.0 . Do they even sell these any more?? For really fine drawing lines I likd crowquills.
Best Ballpoint Pen: Uni-Ball Jetstream Pen
very good pen for every situation
Thank you Jill and Boom for responding. I am happy with the Micron pens I ordered.
