Since there's a thread for sheen, I think we can have a thread of showing shading (or the lack of shading) as well!

On second thought, I should have shown only the ones with great shadings and left out the ones that don't shade.

Ii liked seeing them all--it's a great demonstration of the different degrees of shading.

Fantastic pic.

This is maybe a stupid question, but why do the letters all change shade at the same height?

Wow this is great!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

The ink pools where the stroke ends, thus the shadings. But the amount of ink that pools depends on the ink and how wet the pen writes.

So, the pool runs back along the stroke from the end, and as the strokes all end at the page lines, the shade change happens at the same height further up?

Oh no. Another drool-worthy thread that shall inevitably add to my collection of inks. This is awesome! Thank you.

I find that shading dimensions even with the same pen can change depending on speed, length/width of stroke etc.

I was just writing with Kobe #13 (Nunobiki Emerald) and loved the shading combined with the beachy color so I thought I would share with fellow shade-a-holics :P
