Outside of illustrator, how do you guys that draw make your lines. I typically use micron pens and the occasional sharpie but im still not getting the thickness i really want. Ive heard alot about pentel brush pens but havent tried em out yet.

So what do you use…pencils only, brush, ballpoint pens, markers?

paper suggestions are welcome too but we can save that for another thread.

    The micron brush pens suck hard. I always use Faber Castell for all my ink work.

    The only micon pen I have is the 005 which is the smallest tip I’ve been able to find.

    Damn, haven’t seen those around.

    Might have to snag some online.

    ill have to try those faber castells, im working in illustrator right now cuz this strathmore/micron combo is giving me a lot of bleed in my lines. I think i need to get some legit paper.
