Awhile back I did a brush pen test to determine whether or not the Pentel Pocket brush really was the best refillable pocket brush around. I determined that for the money, it won hands down, but I've since switched to the slightly more expensive Kuretake, since I like how it handles better. I realize that a lot of comic artists don't use the ink that comes with the pens (it tends to be crap), and instead refill the pens with their own ink. Sadly, I'm not at that stage yet, but I did compare the water and copic solubility for the stock inks.

Brush Pen Test Continued: Water and Copic Solubility
Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
