It's more expressive than Brush markers. You could get more linewidth variation with this Pentel brush pen.
Pros: Dries almost instantly, does not bleed through - I use it a lot in my Moleskine sketchbook and lay on a lot of ink and it never goes through the page to the back, beautiful deep black, brush is very responsive and give a good variety of lines, cartridges last a good while.
Cons: I have to replace it about every 8 months. Better to replace than to try and clean it out. It just kind of reaches a point where it doesn't draw as well. This last time it started flowing much too fast. Good thing it's not expensive.
Attached is a drawing I did with the Pentel Pocket Brush
As I look back, I think that making this my first brush pen was a mistake, but luckily not a big one. If you are new to brush pens, this will be a difficult one to learn on since it is extremely flexible and sensitive. It requires a very smooth hand to get a smooth line out of it. Based on my experience, I would suggest getting something like the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush pen set that has both a soft and firm brush pen. Either soft or firm is much firmer than the brush on the Pentel, but after practicing smooth lines with the Tombow pens, I showed a much improved level of control with the Pentel. It still requires practice with the Pentel, but my calligraphy was now "Oh, your learning" as opposed to "You must have the hiccups while writing this"
For the refilling capability of the pen, I have used up one cartridge in it, and proceeded to refill the empty cartrdige with some Pilot Iroshizuki green ink. With the refilling of the ink, the flow immediately improved, though I was still pushing out lots of black ink, After a couple days of light use, I am starting to see green tints to the ink. Dont expect this to be a quick change color pen, the feed holds a lot of ink in it that wont come out without something flushing it. There is probably a way to flush it, but I didnt want to go through that process, as I had no need for any particular color.
The only real con for this pen was on the initial inking, it took a lot of effort to get the ink to flow to the brush and saturate it.
For reproduction- it's not great. The ink isn't quite as good as dr martins, but it doesn't gum up like speedball. I wouldn't use this to ink pages- especially if you plan to erase line from under it.
It's great for drawing and sketching, I wouldn't use it for inking.
As others have mentioned, it only comes with one refill, the other cartridge will be used in the pen upon arrival, as the pen is empty when you open the package.
Take the time to insert the cartridge firmly and gently after opening the pen. Then, in order to start the ink flowing, I found that warming the barrel of the pen with my hand, while holding the tip downwards towards the paper helped start the ink flowing faster. I wouldn't shake or rattle the barrel in order to move the ink faster as it might dislodge the cartridge inside and then you'll have a huge mess.
Just be patient. The ink WILL flow.
As the nib begins to turn black at the top with the ink, help the pen to prime further by lightly gliding the nib against a smooth, clean paper until you begin to get lines.
The line weight, aka thickness is determined on how hard you press. You handle this pen like a Sumi brush, not a ballpoint pen. It's all about technique, angles, and direction of movement. If you take the time to learn the techniques to achieve the varying line weights, I believe that you will truly love this pen.
I'm a professional comicbook artist, so I purchased this in order to have a much more portable option to inking my pencil work than having to tote around - a nib holder, a set of inking nibs, nib cleaners, and various waterproof inks.
Now, with the Pentel Arts Pocket Brush Pen, I just grab the Pentel Brush Pen, Comic Paper, an eraser, and a pencil. And... go!
SIDE NOTE: I own a very nice Copic Set of ink pens, but they only produce flat technical lines, which are good for drawing buildings and cars and such... but kind of produce incredibly bland inked characters.
When drawing comic and manga characters, the personality of the character being inked also comes from the variation of the line weights. This brush pen assists in getting those varying line weights into your characters.
