I bought a couple of things at Kinokuniya this weekend on a sort-of whim. I knew I wanted to keep experimenting with nibs but I already had a School G Pen and some Maru nibs. So far, they’ve been ok to use with the ink I had lying around. The School G skips on me sometimes but I think I effed it up one time when I didn’t use it for months. I didn’t have a sizable pen holder though so I splurged for the $12 to get the kit and some good ink and BOY oh, BOY am I glad I did~!
Wonky anatomy aside, I’ve been inking using both the Maru and G nibs on a few other pieces lying around (like Erza) and I’m absolutely digging the results. They look so different from the multiliner lines, it’s bananas. The quality also looks more confident despite my actual LACK of confidence putting down those lines HAHAHA. I really can’t wait to try these guys out on the comic pages I’m working on right now.
