Hello people of the fountain pen world,

 

Well, I got into fountain pens at first because I heard there was people using them for sketching. Wanting to try this out myself I started to buy some. I have quiet some pens and inks now and my current favorite combo for sketching is my Platinum #3776 chartres blue with its soft fine nib inked with some Iroshizuku Take-sumi.

 

Here are some sketches I did in the train on my way back home today. As you can see my photography skills are as low as they possibly can and I can't really call myself an artist I just took that with my phone. But I'm still sharing. I hope you like them.

By the way the book is a Moleskin 165g/m2. I know people don't like it with fountain pens. But I love it with my pencils and this one is thick enough to behave nicely with ink.

 

If there is anyone also sketching, please, share with me!

 

Also, sorry for my excuse of an english writing, it's not my native language.

Nice work.  You should have a look at the FPN Art Gallery thread, and post stuff there as well.
