This is a great product, I never really used brushes before but now I use this
all the time for rough sketching as it forces you to be less detail obsessed and
loose. I have the standard tip but I plan on picking up the fine tip to see how
it fairs on detailing finished illustrations. At the moment I mainly only use it
on finished inking for the bold outer lines or to block in shadow regions.
Also, I feel like I need to correct a couple of the reviews above that are
mistakenly thinking the little white (or other colours depending on the tip)
ring is a seal. It is not a seal and is meant to be discarded (the instructions
show this), the pen should look like it does in the below test illustration, the
ink reservoir simply attaches directly to the clear plastic grip section.
I hope this is helpful as I have read others marking this product line down for
"flow issues" when I am afraid they are actually assembling it incorrectly.
Just to reiterate, this is an excellent product, much less annoying/ messy than
an actual brush and ink and please ignore the reviews that mention flow issues,
it's actually not a real flaw or problem.
REMEMBER FOLKS, ALWAYS READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
