Playing around with my new Ackerman Manga G Pump Pen on this sketch of Rainbow Kale. It uses dip pen nips such as a Hunt or croquil and has a pump mechanism that delivers ink to the nib. I've put it together in a way where my thumb presses on the pump as I draw, so there's a pretty continuous flow. I love dip pens for their varied line. Buh bye Lamy and Ahab!
Some more play with line variation using Noodler's Cayenne in my Moleskin sketchbook. Smooth paper is much easier to work on. Less catching in the tooth of the paper. Though, I like good kersplatt now and then!
