I would like to get some new nibs but I shall always remain faithful to the original.
The problem with fountain pens, however, is the line quality you get when scanning them. This was most evident to me in the latest comic.
If you look (and you don't even have to look carefully), the line edge has this sort of fuzziness to it. This is because nib of the fountain pen presses into the paper instead of rolling on top of it. The edges left on the embossing get picked up by scanners, and as a result the line quality is not quite as crisp as when I was just using Microns.
Just look at the comparison.
Oh well? What's a guy to do?
Reading over some of my favorite graphic novelists I'm always shocked at the lack of detail in the drawings. Comforted too.
