The basis for a beautiful design is good paper. A paper weight of 190 g/sq. proved of value for my work with (ink) fine liner pens. In doing so, there is no ink pushed through the paper.
My favorites are PITT artist pens by Faber-Castell. They are unlike most other fine liner pens not filled with ink but with India ink. India ink does not dry out as fast as usual ink. The finest line width is 0,1 mm. Nevertheless, I wish there was one of 0,05 mm because I love to work on pretty details.
My second favorite pens are the STAEDTLER pigment liner 308. The great variety of line width makes these fine liners very interesting for me. I enjoy to work with the line width of 0,05 mm. The storage box is very useful. Although the pigment liner 308 dried out on some papers, I can recommend these fine liners as well.
For the preparatory drawings I use retractable pencils by Faber-Castell with a lead size of 0,35 and 0,5 mm. I like to use a three-edged wedge eraser by Faber-Castell, modeling clay or an eraser pencil.
For coloring my designs I use colored pencils by Faber-Castell as well as watercolor colored pencils by STAEDTLER. In order to give each picture a special highlight I occasionally use the fine liner point 88 by STABILO.
