New Pens, New Art - Horses, Castle and Figures.

I picked up some new markers on Amazon. These are the Faber-Castell Wallet of 4 PITT Artist Pens - Black and Sepia. Each set has one
  • B: 1-5mm (Brush spread)
  • M: 0.7mm
  • F: 0.5mm
  • S: 0.3mm

Right of the package, I did a quick sketch of a horse in Sepia. The brown is on the lighter side, but that gives you the ability to layer for deeper colors. 

I really like the feel of these pens. They are on the short thin side, but easy to hold. The brush glides smoothly over most types of paper, but I haven't given them a hard test of textured bristol board or (heaven forbid!) newsprint.

These are wonderful pens at the price point. 

Black Sepia

Having fooled around with the sepia pens, I used the smaller nibs to do some sketches in black. I did two quick figures studies and some sort of space fighter. Even the small nibs glide nicely. Almost too nicely. I didn't want to lift the pen, which gave these studies a scratchy look. 

That's my hand, not the pens.

Later today, I will test them out with another drawing of a castle.
