After many years of constant drawing, and innumerable hours of covering paper in inky lines, I thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of my favourite pens for drawing.
I get so many emails asking me for advice about best materials to use for my style of drawing, so here we go!
My top 5 drawing pens!
|A pricey investment but with these bad boys, you get what you pay for!|
A radiograph set will cost you around £45. But if you look after them, they'll last you a lifetime.
This includes 3 pens of different weights: 0.10, 0.25 and 0.5.
You also get a ruler set, and the draftsman pencil set.
TIP: CASSart in London have constant sales on these sets, so check in there first!
|Cheap and trusty, they may wear out quickly however they're super fast drying, and give a true line. |
Usual RRP around £6.
3) Faber Castell
These pens are amazing - they last for a long time and they have a true line. The only slight issue is the nib tends to bend a little too easily.
But still in the top 3!
TIP: Buy online! You'll save a penny or two.
|This is a fairly recent discovery for me. The Q-connect fineliner with a nib width of 0.4mm.|
Hardy and resilient, it's worth a go!
