I ordered two pricey/fancy brush pens online and received them this week, and decided to battle them out, cockfighting style.
Or just test them both.
Both have their strong points and weak points. The Pentel Pocket Brush is easier to control and maintain, the ink is waterproof. The Kuretake is smoother and quicker and has a wider variety in line weight and variance, and is darker.
But I loves ’em both.
Every artist is looking for the one piece of equipment that will make them better artists. It doesn’t exist, but these pens come really close for me. I can feel myself changing to suit the pens, and it may be that breakthrough I feel I need to open my art up, and open my brain up.
Either that, or mushrooms.
