To quote an earlier positive review, because it sums up my feelings exactly:
"Amazing pen: perfect light color for sketching pre-darker inking. The shade and
tip are present enough to define lines while also being light enough to not
distract from a final inked image." I've also found, on the papers I've tried so
far, I can draw over pencil lines and erase them, leaving only the light grey
sketch for inking over; and also, with careful application of a water brush I
can either blend the grey sketch lines into subtle shading or lift them off
completely. The tip is fine and sturdy enough for delicately thin lines, or can
be used to create thicker or varied-width brushstrokes.
I've had less luck building up layers of shading just using the pen "dry," but
I'm looking forward to more experiments with it. I think it'll be a great asset
for preliminary sketching.
