How I work with Manga Pen-Ink-Nib by luien How I work with Manga Pen-Ink-Nib by luien
the title is so wrong. if you have a suggestion on the title - please tell me. ;^;

:bulletred: Deleter Pen Set and Ink from Artmedia Trading -if it is on stock, you are very lucky, because the stocks runs out fast due to a lot of buyers~! >w<
:bulletred: Speedball Cartoonist Set from Deovir Art Supplies -it would be best to ask their store first about the availability of the product you want to buy - either by email or telephone, their website is not that accurate. ;^;

Hello~

you're from the Philippines right? (I checked your profile)
Try using a cheaper brand first. :) If you check at National Bookstore; they sell 12Php of Chinese Ink. It smells bad and not waterproof but it's a good starting point. If you want to go higher, you can check Artmedia Trading that's where I buy my inks. 

For Pen brands. UNIPIN brand is what I can recommend. It's long-lasting and waterproof, comes in different sizes and it's more common that Sakura products (sometimes Sakura is always out of stock)
> Expect mo na lulubog yung tip pag masyadong madiin ang pag-gamit mo. 
>> Halos lahat ata ng pens nalubog ang tip eh. I'm currently using Neopiko, it's quite expensive but same quality as Unipin only lighter to hold and I'm using the 0.03mm which is not available on Unipin, but no matter how expensive the pen is - lulubog at lulubog ang dulo. *3*

i see^^
 Thanks a lot ! you're so nice.
i used to try unipin too and it works well (better that tech pen) ..
I'm planning to buy materials from japan as well,
 i asked my friend to buy me some.. 
so, i did research about inks most especially~
and i found good reviews on kuretake brand and deleter~
still undecided what to buy.. hehehe. 
For pens~ i wonder if tachikawa brand is good? Sweating a little...

You're welcome~! 

Kuretake is good too since the size is larger than the other inks but I heard it's not waterproof. I like Deleter ink more - since it comes in different types. :) 
If you check here: deleter.jp/img/ink%20differenc…
Number 4 is the best and most expensive ink - but it work with almost everything - waterproof and acid proof.
I bought the number 4 ink and it lasted for 8 months. :D 

For pens - tachikawa brand? Do you mean the Nib types or the School G type? 
For Tachikawa brand - I'm only using the School G ones. 
For nibs - I'm currently on Deleter. The good part about Tachikawa is that it has different nib holders that are made of wood with rubber for easier grip. :D But pricey~ xD

Psst~ Sometimes at anime - cosplay conventions; some shops sells Manga stuffs~
2013 when Deleter Manga shop went to Cosplay Mania - and I got free screentones~ xD

Hello! 

Thank you very much! :hug:
That's good to hear that you want to draw again. ^^
Problems may come up but that's okay. Resting it good! 
If you are still not in a good mood to draw, do not force yourself. :)

Omy! I am not very familiar with any art supplies since I only started drawing seriously 3 months ago - but I remember my girlfriend saying something like that as well. :D 
And yes, their reservoir is really good~! But the amount of ink it release is not very accurate and the top moves a lot. :(

When you said "Continues (is that a word)" I think the word you wanted was "continuous" meaning "to keep going".  Continues is a word, but not the right one for that sentence :XD:

Very nice tutorial btw! :aww:
