I too am missing Uncle Red's pretty pictures!  Where is that gorgeous Sheaffer of his, the blue with the inlaid nib that he cruelly refuses to sell me???   :P

i misdated the note saying it is Jun 11, did not notice unit  now. Sorry for that. I don't own any expensive pens just yet and I am experimenting.  This is a Rosetta Explorer that writes very smoothly and wide, but what I like of this note is the Turquoise ink. It is beautiful! Thank you for watching.

:W2FPN:  and keep posting and welcome to the world of fountain pens!  I really like turquoise ink myself. I have the Omas Extra turquoise I am coveting, but I do like the Sheaffer version as well.

Capt'n, I have that pen!  Looks great.

 

Hooray! We're pen buddies! A friend let me try it out and I knew I had to have it. It just feels so nice in hand.

I'm a terrible doodler... ;.; But I always try.

 

But that's why they're called doodles. It's supposed to be fun. Plus those are nice colors :D


I'll keep on struggling, 'cause that's the measure of a man.

Step 1.) Choose a pen suitable for drawing a bird.
Step 2.) Draw a bird.

Didn't feel like writing tonight (being sick does that, I guess), so... I doodled again instead. Once again, used all my pens in it (yup, those 5 you see there comprises of my entire current collection ;.;).

Yesterday's doodle bled through. This is just an old grid paper notepad I have- nothing fancy. Guess I should add a Rhodia pad to my order on Friday if I'mma continue doodling...

From left-to-right: Jinhao x750 med nib w/ Manuscript red cart, Pilot Parallel 6mm w/ red parallel cart, Manuscript med nib w/ Manuscript black cart, Hero 7028 (med or fine nib, unsure) w/ Pelikan Royal Blue, Manuscript fine nib w/ Manuscript black cart.

 

The Pelikan is the only ink I have right now, hence all the cartridges. My Goulet order is gonna have a lot of samples, so... There will be more non-cart ink soon (...I should order a converter for the Jinhao, since the one it came with broke on first attempt to use...).

And don't put ink where the bird is not.

 

That's where I have the problem.

Step 1.) spill ink on paper

 

Step 2.) draw the word fart and go from there.

BTW, I love how the smoking bird has his legs crossed like he is just chilling out for the rest of the day.

The Noodler's seems to have a better flow, but they look identical. But I am a FP baby so I am probably missing ALL THE NUANCES.

 

 

... I finish work (yes I'm a bad person who hangs out on FPN while working) in a bit over an hour. I'm gonna try drawing birds. It's on y'all if they come out looking like some poor mad scientist's experiment. ;)
