Default Artists pens and painting - Question

Ok, so I'm sure it's been asked before but I can't seem to find a thread about it.

The latest White Dwarf has some Death Wing terminators in the back and the description that the painter used some "architect's fine liner pens" to add some of the detail.

Now, I'm an engineer and most drawing done in my office these days is on the computer... gone are the days when we needed drawing pens, so I just wonderd if you guys had any idea what sort of pens would be best for this application?

You can get some great artline products that do a similar thing.

One of the best items I have used is a Maybeline Eyeliner. Ultra thin and the ink just keeps flowing. Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner | LifeandLooks.com

And it doubles up for those cross dressing nights that we all have from time to time ......... or is that just me ?

Guessing you don't mean the cross dressing.

nothing wrong with a little guy liner /.-
used to wear it myself on occasion the only problem i can see with using makeup products would be sealing it so it doesnt wear away

This is true, however I have noticed it is more resilient than you think. A smooth plastic mini is a more forgiving environment than a the skin of a face.

But definitely a top coat is a great idea.

this is what you need

rapidograph pens are ok but the nib is metal so scratches the paint, the pen above has a fibre tip and pigmented ink , i use these for comic book inking and sketching, but they work great for fine detail on minis such as tattoos or eyes, they also do sepia
