"The brush pen is really like an actual brush. It feels very much like a natural I mean. It makes amazing accidental flowing lines, and no more worries of being dried out or too much inks flowing because of the piston.
And the hair tip feels like made with almost full of natural hair that keeps the original shape and sharp point of the tip by smoothness
And also, it doesn't need any expensive special ink :). Just like an actual brush that I can draw outside too.
This brush pen is very creative, and useful that I would love to recommend to other drawers. You know what? Actually one of my professior who teaches perspective class actually asked me what pen I was using. "
