It may surprise you to know I use photo reference on a regular basis. Mostly, I'm looking at poses, balance and body language. But sometimes I'll actually trace (yes TRACE!) a photo for help. Sometimes, like here, I need help because I don't feel like I'm nailing an important shot. Other times it's because I'm running on E... just tired, so tracing a photo becomes my figure "breakdown" but no matter WHY I'm using a photo or how, I never let the photo dictate my drawing...
So I've been using this pen quite a lot recently. The ink is good, they don't last a really long time but they aren't pricey, so that's okay. I find I go through about two an issue that stay super-fine, after that I can still use it, but mostly on backgrounds and larger figures. Kuretake really does make some great products
