- Traditional hand drawn Pen & Ink
- Being able to create textures, line weights, and depth in black & white comic book illustration work
Quill Nib pen holders and the Quill Nibs, especially the #102 [Crow] Quill Nib. Quill Nibs can create a varied line weight to the artwork as well as many different textures.With a Quill Nib, I can create a line that finer than a hair line, and at the same time, use the same quill to continue that line to a much bolder thickness. All in one stroke of the Quill Nib penholder that's holding the nib point.
Additionally, with the use of Speedball India ink, we'll get artwork of archival quality. Never fading. When I need to paint watercolors on top of inked art, this will prevent the ink lines from bleeding. There are many different kinds of India Ink out in the market, but I find Speedball India Ink is the most fluid and works best with any tools used, whether it be technical pens, brushes, or Quill Nibs.
