Chubbible Day 9 & some pens


"momonga nap" (Bao might fall down.... wouldn't be the first time though...)

"Weapon Of Mass Destruction" (a short sighted skunk isn't really the best neighbour... )

and my pigment liners /roller:
1. Signo Pen with metal tip: perfect for highlights in combination with water colour, copics, tombows but not with gel roller (that will cause bad smudges)
2. Signo pen black 0.28 with metal tip. My alltime favourite when I have a book signing. :3 very thin lines. Works good with water colours. Might be tricky with tombows and copics though.
3. Pentel Slicci: Awesome for shading sketches in black-n-white. Very smooth lines and oh so fine for details. Problematic with water colours and tombow. The japanese seller told me copics are no problem but I doubt that a little... BEST choice for black and white work though. I am a bit torn between Signo and Slicci but Slicci is better -although I didn't want to admit it >_<
4. Edding 1800 Profi pen 0.1 (available in 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 as well and different colors): Awesome for linework you want to colorate afterwards. Best choice -i think- for all three options (tombow, water colour and copic). I did my ET Hippo with that and this pen never ever caused problems.
5. Copic Multi liner: I know most people worshop those but I have the feeling that there is much less ink in than eg in Eddings. And the tip... well, I don't like it. And regarding price: Edding and Steadler are cheaper and in my opinion better. The only good thing might be that if an Edding is too thick you can still take a 0.05 Copic and add details.
6. Staedtler Pigment Liner: Second option for working with outlines and coloration. It smugded only one time and i think only because i didn't wait long enough.


... and the heads. Left Signo (Slicci looks the same but is slim and straight), right Edding (same head as Copic and Staedtler).
I LOVE the steel head. It's so much more comfort to draw with that one if you work with a bit more pressure (like I normally do). The biggest problem of steel-nip combination is that the tip vanishes with too much pressure or bends or breaks or splits (had that... uncool). Those accidents are impossible with a full steel head. But... I am still waiting for a 100%ly water-resistent solution for those.

Hm, interessant. ö.ö Meine Copic Multiliner-Spitzen sehen auch alle inzwischen bissl uncool aus. (und ich dachte immer vielleicht bin ich ein Brutalo... :P) Bekommt man die Signo Stifte in Dtl. im Handel?

Liebe Grüße und ein gesundes neues Jahr
