In preparation for a webcomic, I tried inking various character studies using different methods. Top left with a copic brushpen, top middle with a PITT brush pen, top right with a papermate nylon, bottom with a PITT Fine. all are outlined using an old PITT brush pen with a bad tip.
In all fairness, I can't see much difference. The PITT gives a finer line than the others, but that's about it. Obviously, the inks differ, but in usage terms - nothing in it. I found this when looking at fountain pens - in most cases, there is little to no difference in the output - just how the pen feels when you're using it. It's a valuable lesson. As I'm using normal paper, I may go back to the Rotring Art Pen...
