Ink: Chung Wha, same as I used for the drawing in a previous post.
Paper: Daler-Rowney Heavy Weight. (Perhaps a heavier paper would be better suited)
Brushes: For the details I used a Winsor & Newton “Spectre Gold” 303 Sable/Synthetic blend. No 1. For the washes I used a brush with synthetic hair.

Using a no 2 synthetic brush and a no 6 sable hair brush for ink washes and a nib pen for drawing details. The ink I’m using is Zhong Hua Chinese ink (which I haven’t tried before).

If I were to make a list of my favourite pens, this one would be number one. It’s very flexible. It has a plastic nib which you can use to make fine, thin lines or broader lines.

Example 1:

This was drawn on plain print/copy paper. The paper is quite smooth, so it’s easy to make long, smooth lines.

Example 2:

This was drawn on Daler-Rowney heavy-weight paper. The paper is fine-grain but there’s more friction than the paper in the example above. It’s easier to make short, angular lines. I think it’s easier to make more “sculpted” drawings if the paper is heavier.
