I'm curious to know what everyone here uses to ink. Anyone care to comment? Preferences?

I use Sharpies for big chunky work and Micron for more detailed stuff. Sometimes I'll bust out my quill and inkwell when I am feeling artistic.

005 Microns and a Pentel brush pen. Not the most sophisticated tools, but they end up looking the way I want them to.

I used Staedtler B and 2B lumograph pencils for Amulet and my Flight 4 story. For Copper, I still use a Hunt no. 102 crow quill and Higgins Black Magic ink. Staedtler pigment liner .03 for all the lettering.

I've been using a Pitt Artist's pen for lettering and panel borders--the F or S widths seem to work best for me.

Most of my inking is with a Windsor & Newton Series 7 brush, size 1 or 2, and Dr. Marten's waterproof India ink. Little details, eyeballs, and patterns are done with those teeny little Microns.

Faber Castell Pitt Pen (brush) for character outlines. For finer details, microns.
I'm too lazy to work with real brush and inks, though I really should try getting back to it.

Just got my first new G-pen nib since my last one broke 5 years ago. I'm going to see if it's still good for me.

Lately, same as my friend Dik! And for lettering, Rapidograph 0.7mm (for more than 20 years I've used the same one!)

Micron pens but occasionally Macromedia Flash for my digital inking.

Lately, I've been using an average ballpoint pen. No real preference. I just enjoy the "sketchy" appearance and the layering of thin lines.

Sometimes I also use a 5/0 spotter brush with Speedball India Ink and a filbert for filling. For quick touch up details and lettering, I use Artline or Micron Pens.

I use to "ink" with HB pencil, because I like the rough line it produces when scanned, but the glare created by the graphite was too much for me.

Usually I use Micron pens mainly because I got used to using them for technical drawings while working for an architect.

Recently I've been inking digitally in Photoshop and found it enjoyable in its own way.
