Thanks, Batman55. Yeah. Been learning to draw for about 15 years. Only about 98 more to go. Ha! I had fun with perspective on the pumping unit. Wish the gravel looked more like gravel than a pile of leaves. Ha!
Thanks, Mike. I was mostly pleased with the Flicker effort...got a little sloppy here and there. I didn't think I was getting as much flex from the Pilot Falcon SEF as I'd expected until I did this comparison. Not too bad for a modern fountain pen. (I've never used a vintage fountain pen.)
My Noodler's Konrad Ebonite (not shown) provides a wider fine line and about the same thick line width but its feed is unreliable and, frankly, a pain in the behind. So, I'm happy with my investment in the Pilot. It's been very reliable so far and seems well made.
The Pilot sample below is with Lexington Gray ink as I was too lazy to re-ink it. It feathered a bit on the Stonehenge. I switched to Platinum Carbon Black for the dip pens as the Lexington Gray seems too "thin" for dip pens.
