I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while! I’ve heard from a lot of you wondering what type of pens I use for my artwork. I’m pretty simple and not fussy about the brands I like to use. I know a lot of artists use some pretty expensive and one-of-a-kind pens but for me I migrate towards sharpie and mostly Energel & Uni-Ball pens. You can pick these pens up at your local store, they last a long time and they produce a great ink line. They’re probably used more for note taking and other non-art related tasks but I’ve never cared about that. They’ve always been great for highly detailed artwork as well. Here’s a bit more information on these specific types:
1. Uni-ball Signo bit 0.18, made in Japan. If you’re looking for a very delicate pen to do highly detailed work, this pen is for you. The tip is so fine you can write on a grain of rice.
2. Energel Liquid Pen 0.7mm ball, made in Japan. This is the pen I prefer the most. It’s versatile and great for detail work.
3. Uni-ball Vision fine. Similar to the Energel pen. A nice opaque ink that saturates a lot of ink onto the page.
4. Sharpie ultra fine point and normal. Wonderful to fill in larger parts of a drawing, helps speed things up if needed!
Also starting to work with more color, like these rainbow sharpie pens;)
Let me know if you have any questions and write below in the comments and tell me what are some of your favorite pens to use?! Always fun to try something new.
