Inking tools – ink and nib & many different kinds of nibs – drawing, sketching, architecture, calligraphy, lettering & drawing nibs allow for a wide variety of line widths & sketching and architecture are good for fine details & calligraphy and lettering nibs (a, b, c) & most manga-ka use “g-nibs” - highly flexible drawing nibs
  5. 5. Inking tools – ink and nib & require a lot of practice & not very portable & ink does not dry fast/tends to smear & will shred or spider on cheap paper & often very slow process
  6. 6. Inking tools – brush & most variation of line weight, fast filling in of black & great for emulating sumi-e painting & other techniques such as dry brush for texture & can be very difficult to learn, good brushes very expensive & Less portable
  7. 7. Technical pens & brands such as micron, copic, pitt, rapidograph & lots of sizes & will give you a consistent line weight – good for lettering, mechanical/architectural objects & easiest to transport, easiest to learn & do not give dynamic lines without extra work & some tips very fragile/easy to break
  8. 8. Brush Pens Nylon Bristles (Pentel Pocket Brush) Felt Tipped (Pitt Pen, Sakura Micron Brush, Copic Multiliner Brush) Rubber Tipped (Fude pens) portable
