I am so into Copic's markers that I figured I'd start with their MultiLiner SP pens in drawing Lycos Anthropos. For me it is finely balanced and initially feels good to use. The nibs, when new, produce a faithful line without bleeding. And of course, the ink is water proof. The nibs are replaceable and ink refills can be easily inserted. This was an especially big selling point for me. If you draw a lot with ink pens you know what I mean. It always feels like such a shame to throw old, worn out pens into the recycling bin.
Don't get me wrong, when you have a freshly refilled MultiLiner with a new nib the pen works like a charm. But for the price I think I'll keep shopping around. In the meantime I have fallen back on one of my age-old fave ink pens: Sakura's Micron. More about that in a future blog.
