I bought my first Pilot...
November 17, 2015
I bought my first Pilot Color Eno (Soft Blue) some 2-3 years ago and it's still
the one I used the most, out of any of my art supplies, to sketch with. About a
week later I ended up buying the rest of the colours. They're so inexpensive, I
like buying them as presents for my artists friends or recommending it to anyone
new to jetpens. The yellow one is by far my least favourite and least used one,
the colour is very very light and if anything the lines the lead makes in the
paper are more noticeable than the actual lead itself, it's not good for
sketching but sometimes I like to use it to fill in areas or add bit of depth to
my pictures, you just have to go over the area a couple times lightly.
The pencil is light and made from plastic, none of mine have had a problem with
cracking and I haul these guys everywhere with me. The eraser is small and not
very useful for erasing big parts, but for finer details it does a lovely job,
just make sure you have a bigger eraser laying around when using this pencil.
The lead erases very nicely, it will smudge (not streak) if you're rubbing your
hand over the picture while you're drawing.
I think everyone should own at least one of these pencils, they're fantastic.
Just don't start with the yellow one, haha.
