Drawing pens and markers FAQs

What are the best markers for drawing?

The most popular art drawing markers are water-based markers thanks to their wide range of colours and ease of use. They don't have an unpleasant scent, which alcohol markers can sometimes feature, and can be blended even by beginners. Popular drawing pen and marker brands include Jasart, Faber Castell, Tombow and Uni-Ball.

How to use a brush pen for drawing

Brush pens have soft, pliable tips much like a paintbrush, and can be used in a similar way on paper. Use the tip of the brush to create thinner lines, and angle it to create thicker linework on the side. Don't press too hard, as it may cause the brush tip to bend out of shape.

Are drawing markers refillable?

Not all drawing markers are refillable, but the ones that are will always be clearly labelled so you can buy or make the refills yourself. For most markers you will need to remove the cap and unscrew the tip, then insert the filler into the barrel and squeeze it to release the ink.
