|Pilot Pens: G-Tec C4 Microtip 0.4mm Rollerball Pen (brown ink)|
- my latest "bulk" purchase @£3 per pen
|Product: Pilot Pens: G-Tec C4 Microtip 0.4mm Rollerball Pen (brown ink)|
|HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: The Pilot-G-Tec-C4 rollerball pen in brown ink is my pen of choice for sketching. |
Summary: It has an incredibly thin line making very fine hatching incredibly easy to do. The even flow of the ink and the ease of its release also means that I can hold the pen very lightly which helps with my tenosynovitis. There is absolutely no need to press hard. It also is very good at NOT "blobbing" hence sketches are not ruined by a sudden release of a blob of ink. It works exceptionally well on very smooth paper such as that found in Moleskine Sketchbooks.
There are two aspects which will not appeal to some sketchers - the ink is not waterproof hence will run if you apply watercolours over the top. The very thin point means that there is no scope for varying the line - it is constant and very fine
