LE PEN DRAWING
This is the perfect pen for drawing anime and manga comics. The Le Pen is great for drawing artwork and pairs well with the Le Plume Permanent Markers for coloring in. The Le Pen comes in black ink only and seven point sizesWater Based Pigmented Ink, Lightfast, Archival Quality, Fast drying, Smudge resistant, Acid Free, Non Toxic
4 piece set contains one each point: 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 0.8
8 piece set contains one each point: 0.03, 0.05, 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, 1.0, brush
I love all of the different tip sizes available - This is my third set - these tips are much more durable than the Micron's. I also love the Black. It is a true black. The brush tip is great for feathering. Also - these work great with alcohol markers - once they are dry - they don't blead or blend with the alcohol markers at all... It keeps a nice crisp, clean line.
I would love some advice! I got the .003 pen, and loved it.
But sudenly and quite soon after buying it it stoped paintig as if it was dry. We tried storing it upright, but it started leaking ink on the side and the tip was still super dry and not painting.
What happened? How can I prevent this from happening again when I buy a new uchida drawing pen
Sorry to hear about that. Here are some storage tips.
Make sure the cap is on tight. Store pens horizontally or tip side down to avoid drying up. Try not to store pigmented ink markers with tip up. They tend to dry quicker. You can also store them in a seal able plastic bag. This helps moisture from evaporating.
I hope this helps
I used one of those liners for outlining my drawings. It was said that they are alcohol marker resistant so I was not worried about the coloring process. However, it turned out that this company is not following their requirements and my whole drawing was ruined - the black liner spilled all over the drawing once it was went over with my alcohol marker (Just to let you know I am using top quality color markers "Copic"). Please test out your quality of your products because it is really devastating to give your customers inaccurate expectations for them.
nice pens, quick turn a round.
Le Pen has been my go to for decades. Somehow these drawing pens escaped my radar. I became aware of them via an illustrator friend. I knew I had to have them! They make cursive writing/lettering look amazing!
