Here's a new italic hand I'm mastering - Italic with a sharp, broad angle. Did this with my new favorite pen called the Pilot Parallel Pen in 3.8mm. I LOVE this stuff. It's an automatic pen that does not need dipping and you can fill the entire barrel with ink. Very fast and both corners of the nib can be used for making hairlines. I'm having a blast!
Paper Ink Arts now offers them at a discounted price. So I bought the whole set. Changed my life. Supposed to be great for color work, though I have not yet tried it. Will soon!
