The best drawing pens
Which pen to use for doodle? Well the best doodle pens will be the ones that professional artists use for drawing. Luckily you don’t have to pay top dollar to some of these amazing pens.
Yes, they might be a little more expensive than a regular pen but still they last long and it is so worth drawing with pens that are created to make your doodling and drawing easier.
Also, having different sized nibs help with adding details to your doodle. Check out below some good drawing pens I am sure you will enjoy.
Sakura Pigma Micron
The Sakura Pigma Micron was my first favorite bullet journal writing tool but it was in fact a drawing pen. What I love about it is how smooth it writes on paper, how the ink instantly dries and there are no smudges and of course I love that the ink doesn’t bleed through paper!
I cannot say enough good things about these pens but don’t take my word for it, you can check the reviews too!
Pitt artist pens
Faber Castell Pitt Artist is another fantastic fineliner with pretty much of the same benefits of the Sakura pens I mention above. You will be happy with this brand too.
I have just recently discovered the Uni-pin fineliner brand and so far it has been a great pen for doodling too. The one great advantage of the Uni-pin sets is that they come with different pen colors, not only black.
You can get the grey shades or even sepia tones, these are great for adding different tones to your doodles.
Staedtler pigment liner
Staedtler has this great sketch set of 6 line widths. Their packaging is sturdy and makes traveling with these pens quite easily!

The Gelly Roll pens are from the Sakura brand, one of my fave brands for writing and drawing tools.

Best markers for drawing
Markers can also be fantastic doodling tools if you like to add color to your drawing.
Staedtler fiber tip marker
These Triplus Color Fiber Tip Pens are designed with a triangular barrel for relaxed doodling.
Tombow dual brush
The Tombow dual brush pens are super popular among the bullet journaling community because they are soft and don’t bleed through.
Copic markers have alcohol-based ink therefore their blending is fantastic! it is one of my fave markers for coloring.
Sharpies are also alcohol-based markers so you can expect great blending. be careful though with alcohol based markers because they tend to bleed through paper a lot. I suggest using paper that you don’t plan on using the back of it.
Stabilo Markers (68 Point)
The Stabilo markers point 68 come with a 1mm nib which is thicker than than the 88 point marker from the same brand.
