Well, this has been one of the most hyped pens I have ever read about. So naturally the question is; can it live up to the hype? Well, lets start with the design. The Pentel SES15C exactly like the regular Pentel Sign Pen from the exterior. The only difference that I can find is that... Continue Reading →
Pilot V Sign Pen – Is It Any Good?
Boy, was I excited when I spotted this today. A felt tip Sign pen in a local shop for less than 3€. No shipping, no waiting. So first impression is that the plastic feels a little cheap. Like one step above a cheap kids marker. Take the cap off and it feels short and stubby.... Continue Reading →
-Pentel Pocket Brush Pen GFKP – retrospective
I'm sure a lot of people have reviewed this pen, and in some ways I will. However I hope to take a different path of exploration. First let's state the obvious. It's a synthetic brush pen, that uses disposable ink cartridges. So, why is that special? In contrast to other synthetic brushes, this one is... Continue Reading →
Airbrush and Maker Skull
So I kinda goofed on this one. Poor planning and it didn't turn out quite how I wanted it too. I used EFBE Airbrushes and Copic Markers. Got frustrated and just finished it to be done. It's a good lesson in technique but maybe not a great example of a final product per se.
Drawing a Zombie with Markers
I did this video primarily to showcase the Copic Ciao markers, and I think it unfortunately shows that relying on these markers isn't the best choice. They seem to dry out faster than any other marker I have used, and they did on this drawing. I hope you enjoy the video, it was fun to... Continue Reading →
How I Modified my Apple Pencil
For all the dumb things that I have done in my life, buying an iPad Pro with and Apple Pencil wasn't one of them. Thankfully my idea for an instant grip was also a great idea, or at least for my purposes it is. Now sure, the Apple Pencil is a wonder of technology and... Continue Reading →
For the Love of a Very Special Pencil
So let me introduce to you, my very favorite Pencil. This is the Sanford Prismacolor Col-Erase Carmine Red 20045 Pencil. A bit hard to come by in Europe however very readily available in America. A box runs about 10$ for and you get 12 pencils inside. No you may ask, and I would imagine 90... Continue Reading →
Sprayza Blow Marker, Rose Project
I found a set of the RenArt Sprayza Blow Markers on clearance locally for around 12€. I couldn't resist, the ghetto kids airbrush. Yes it was in the children's section of the local Müller. Which for my fello Americans would be like the fanciest Walgreens you could ever imagine had a three way love child... Continue Reading →
My Process for Drawing a Skull With Pens and Markers Start to Finish.
So I drew this skull, first I started sketching with an erasable pencil. Well a Col-Erase Carmine Red pencil to be exact. This is my favorite pencil, it is a good dark shade of read, works smoothly and layers nicely. I could talk all day about this Pencil. After that I started inking it in.... Continue Reading →
Refilling Copic Ciao Markers
I made a short video showing how to refill Copic Ciao markers. Now on principle I doubt I will buy any more of the Ciao series of markers. I don't like that they aren't supposed to be refilled. Seems like a lot of waste for such expensive markers. Don't get me wrong, the markers are... Continue Reading →
