I've recently picked up these Faber-Castell Pitt greyscale brush-tip style indian ink pens. They are quite cool! Ceertain greys are lihter and others darker and certain ones are wramer and others cool. In this sketch I used the Pitt black brush-tip pen, (this one came with a set of normal tip pens), two fine tip ones and I think two of the greyscale brush-tip pens.

I think the set of coloured ones look interesting


I also did this small ACEO (2.5"x3.5") owl using them;

Very nice and original. I like your style. The owl is fantastic too. I have only one grey brush pen pitt Faber Castell and I use it with the black ones, to give shadows.

I really like the Pitt brush pens. I have the entire set of 48 colors including the grey scales you used. Check out my Gridlock101 in the forum above. I used strictly black on UV coated paper that really emphasizes the deep india ink pigment. I have used them on acrylic primed canvas panels as well and they cover better than I thought.

Keep up the good work, your drawing is really cool!! :clap: :thumbsup:

Thanks for looking all. These are new to me and I had spent some years just using acrylics on canvas and watercolour and chinese ink on paper so it's a new change.

I actually just got the set of 24 brush pens! I started doing some small ACEO (2.5"x3.5") drawings . I like the container box and they are a nice change of medium.
