Rapidograph by KageBates
This sexy baby is a Koh - I - Noor 3x0 Rapidograph. The god of all pens! I bought this a few weeks ago, used it once and broke it like an idiot. I bent the thin wire that feeds the ink onto your paper. It cost 20 dollars to replace the tip (2/3 of the original cost) so I wont be doing that again! I haven't received the replacement yet and it's KILLING me! I need it!!! These pens were used by animators before computers, animation software...etc. They haven't been used much since then but they are apparently rising in popularity. Which is fantastic because I can say without a single doubt, Rapidograph pens are the best art pen ever constructed! You also have to buy your own ink separate so you can fill it with whatever your heart desires.

KageBates's Profile Picture
Keith Gates
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I am eighteen years old. Not once have I attended an art class, it is just a hobby of mine. Most of my art consists of cartoons or abstract pen drawings. A lot of my work is not in my possession either. This is because I scrap most of it or give them away. Also I am not afraid of criticism (in fact I welcome it) so feel free to say whatever you want about my art. Also I must apologies in advance if I ever say anything rude to anyone. I'm a narcissistic ass most of the time and have trouble keeping mouth/typing appendages under control sometimes. It is a daily struggle and is something that I do not intend to fix. It is part of my deviously dashing charm and a huge factor of my charisma....hmm what else?...oh yeah, I am a Taurus and only posses a few of the qualities that one is granted being born under that particular constellation. Suck it Taurus! I shall not succumb to the fates will!
