I have been wanting a nice fine line pen..I'm tired of drawing with fine markers, they always wear out too fast. I got this Rotring Artpen today. Sort of a calligraphy type pen,with an ink cartridge inside, and with a nice
sharp fine line, instead of a chisel type end. I wanted it to do pen and ink
drawings with, and it works really nicely!! I loved it, until I decided
to try watercoloring in my drawing, and the ink RAN!!! I was so bummed
out. So, I re drew my drawing of my kitchen counter, and left it
just black and white. Then I doodled a bit with it. I really love how
it works, but the fact that the ink will run and smear if it gets wet is
a disappointment. I remember drawing with my rapidograph pens and
watercoloring them in. I guess I thought this would work out the same.
