I don't often post a Comparison without having experience with an ink or having done a wee Ink Review. So this comparison is not extensive as usual; I look upon it as a friendly introduction to the Wancher ebine ink. While I certainly have no desire to limit discussion, be aware that I am planning to review this ink. So certain elements of the ebine profile still need to be addressed. e.g. wet samples.
I do not use a large number of such 'warm' inks. And I tend to mix the ones I want from the inks I have on hand. Most are simple Magenta + Yellow + Something Else. Perhaps I'm too moody to commit to a bottle of certain types of colours.
Here's the stuff:
Please take a moment to adjust the brightness & contrast of your monitor to accurately depict this Gray Scale.
