Thanks for your comments. I used sakura pigma micron pens on my drawings and then added small amounts of shading with a graphite pencil. I can see what you mean about the ink running with the paint, but I think that in your pictures it has created a nice effect and goes well with your loose drawing style. I have combined the pens with paint occasionally. I found that they didn't run with oil paints. I haven't tried watercolor. I found that they sometimes ran with acrylics if the ink hadn't had enough time to dry. I could use ink on top of dry acrylic with no problem. sometimes I color the pictures with colored pencil. Mostly I have just used pen and pencil. (I like plain black and white) I've also done some pictures with pastels, but I don't combine those with ink (It makes a mess of the pens!)
