Amazing brush pen! I use this one and a few others and of all things I'm
actually considering replacing my traditional Chinese brushes with these pens
for line work. I do a hybrid of sumi-e and chinese painting, as I have a
background in both, and artwork that is centered around fantasy scifi and
comics. For me I like to be able to work on the go and these pens are amazing
for that, I use waterbrushes to handle the watercolor and these for the lines.
They do an excellent job getting all the subtle variations you do with a
traditional sumi brush, but much easier and without needing a open ink bottle.
I'm considering filling them with sumi ink once they are empty of the ink that
came with them, as I prefer actual sumi ink. That said, if used just for lines
and not filling large black areas the refills do seem to last a long time.
