How to Draw with a Fountain Pen: ProTips

If you’re new to fountain pen drawing and you’re collecting information about how to get started before you dive into one of your first attempts, consider these pro tips:

1. Use good paper and ink. (You’ll notice that this video shows a Rhodia notebook and uses Noodler’s Black fountain pen ink. While these are not your only options – they are solid choices).

2. Don’t be afraid to guide your fountain pen sketch with an initial pencil rendering. That magical ability to make a mistake and erase it to try again? That’s a pencil thing. Take advantage of the unique qualities of the pencil so your final fountain pen sketch has the best chance of turning out just right.
