Here's the new brush (dwarfing the old brushes--and it costs less than a third of what they cost--although it is maybe not quite as sturdy)

and some sketches I did with it to test it

(^the upper right corner there is with the old Raphael 8404 brush)

It's nice! Stiff tapering synthetic tip with brushy horsehair around it, and carries so much ink/water in that huge head! Yay. I'll probably be using this for A* now unless it falls apart right away or something. (Oh and the end is sawed off because the long handle is weighted for dangly, abstact sumi-e painting--the weight is too far back for holding it in an illustrator's grip...until you chop the end of the bamboo handle off. ;)

The technical aspects of your art are remarkably compelling even to us clueless ones...

Also; I think the Plot is entering a significant patch!

Yeah you'll have to put up with me talking about art supplies since I seem to have this strange obsession with them. ;)

That's not a diagram, it's a web-comic!

Or at least a treecomic!
