Fineliner Pens

Fineliner Pens are a fantastic way of creating sketches and drawings in ink. Ideal for graphics, cartoon work, illustration and much more, Fineliners are a must-have for any aspiring artist. With various nib sizes, different size lines and marks can be made, and different techniques achieved.

Finding a Fineliner that’s right for you depends on your own likes and styles. We would suggest trying a few different brands to get a feel for which ones are more suited to your drawing style.
