A new illustration I did in pen & Lyra Aquacolors. I recently got a Tomboy calligraphy brush pen and I really wanted to check it out.
The brush tip feels really smooth and even. The brush easily let me lay down both thick and thin lines. This pen has two ends, which I wasn’t expecting, a black ink side and a grey ink side.
I have a Pentel brush pen, which I love, however its weakness is the ink, even after hitting it with a heat-gun and letting it sit, I find the ink will still smudge and lift when I use watercolors. My new Tombow pen, well the ink really seems to hold fast, which instantly endears it to me.
I tested my new pen by going over the lines with Lyra Aquacolor crayons. No smudging or lifting! Yay!
