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

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

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

I think Pelikan Edelstein Topaz has some nice shading

Wow this is great!

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

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
