If I'm ever using something else not listed,

lemme me know and I'll post it!

Brush Pens

Pentel Pigment Ink

Brush Pen - Medium

Largest ink cartridge here, when squeezed its perfect for big areas. Also amazing thin to thick lines, but slightly harder to control. 

Kuretake No. 13 Fountain Brush Pen

Not gonna, lie. This is my favorite. Super small, aluminum shell, beautiful tip that gives AMAZING control with just a little bit of chaos somehow.

Copic Gasenfude

Brush Pen

Most love its compatibility with Copic Markers, but I just use it for Medium & Thick inking. They say it's disposable but I proved that wrong. Great Pen!

Kuretake No. 8 Fountain Brush Pen

Same pen as the No. 13, but instead of an aluminum shell, this has a longer plastic body. Cheaper, but still very good.

Zebra Disposable

Brush Pen

Great entry level Brush Pen, but I still use them for advanced inking. The short tip gives INSANE levels of control for tight linework.

Classic. Very Popular. I enjoy it, but other artists are much better with it than I am (soon you too). I find it to be a Jack of All Trades, Master of None.

Pentel Pocket

Brush Pen

Other Stuff

Zebra Fude

Brush Pen

Double sided Brush Pen gives you extra value with short and long sides. Mostly I use the short tip because of the BEST control for tight linework.

Still getting to know it, but I like it so far. Razor thin lines, then can really pour on the ink when pressure is applied. Could be King one day. 

Kuretake Bimoji Cambio

Brush Pen - Medium

Dr. Ph. Martin's BLACK STAR India Ink - HICARB

My fav ink. I'm no expert, but most say brush pens last longer when ink has MORE CARBON (hicarb). Also, other brands aren't this SUPER DARK.

The Masters Brush Cleaner

& Preserver

Best brush cleaner for traditional brushes & nibs to ink and paint.

Water Bristles, Rub in Soap, Rub Bristles, Repeat 1-2 more times.

Pentel Presto! Jumbo Correction Pen

The ULTIMATE correction fluid! Portable, Huge Cartridge, Cheap, and best of all ...Super Opaque! After it QUICKLY dries, ink over it!

The Masters

Hand Soap

Remove Ink Stains From Your Hands! Just add water! The answer to the age old question is HERE!

Sakura SumoGrip

Erasers

I finally found an eraser that doesn't smear my inks or lighten them. The retractable one is my favorite.

Drafting (Duster)

Brush

DON'T SMEAR YOUR ART ANYMORE! After erasing pencils, you're left with eraser crumbs. Don't wipe with your hand, it will smear! Brush away clean!
