From personal experience I find that the Sakura Pigma brush pens fray at the tips way to fast for me. My favorite of the brush pen type so far has been the Copic ones. I found they last me longer than the sakura ones. I used to really like the tombow dual pens, but I have not been to an art store that has them in a while. Although i guess none of this really compares to inking with an actual brush, which after i did i wondered why i had not been all along.

Thanks Justin,
Great to get the feedback. Unfortunately they are not sold here in Australia (neither is tombow) but i am keen to try one.
Are you using the Copic multiliner SP brush pen? the refillable one?

I use a PITT brush pen and the pentel pocket brush pen.
You are right, nothing beats a good sable brush!
Cheers

Yeah the one i am using is the Multiliner SP Brush pen. They seem to last longer for me that the sakura ones or any other ones i have tried. A little more expensive but i do not mind if it works better. I like the Pitt ones too. I love to sketch with the Pitt oil pencils. Did you ever try those?

Cool Justin. I have the Copic multiliner SP fine liner 0.5 size. it's the best fineliner i have used. the nib quality is better than the PITT pens and so is the ink. I will check out those oil pencils.
