I am doing some drawings in pencil that I would like to redo in pen and ink, I plan on transfering with a light box. I would like it to have the look of cell animation, solid black lines and bright colors that arnt streeked. What kind of pens should I get and what kind of paper should I do it on? I would like one finetip black pen for detail and a thicker one for outlines. Every time I try using a Pilot the ink bleads and it isn't very sollid. What kind of pens should I get for the color?

prismacolor makes some decent pens. Any paper will do...just depends on your preference. Make sure everything is acid free and archival.

I've tried tons of pens and my favorite ones to use are the regular Sharpie brand. They have the thicker point as well as the fine points available. You can get them pretty much anywhere for a low cost. Staedtler also makes watercolor pens that are great for pen and ink drawings. You can get them in various shades of black or in colors. You'd prolly have to check an art supply store for them though. And from what I remember they are fairly expansive. The good thing is that they last a while. I've had my initial set for about 3 years now and they are just starting to go weak on me. Hope this helps. Steve www.fightinglegacy.com
