Woohoo you shared! Thanks so much! Alright, let’s take a look at some specific brands and pricing. All of these are excellent options for lettering, so have a browse and see if any stand out to you!
Tombow Dual Brush Pens: You may have noticed my unashamed love of Tombow’s pens! They’re what I first started with, and I just keep coming back to them. They’re forgiving, perfect for learning but flexible enough to create advanced art with, don’t bleed, and come in a huge array of colours! My recommendation fo’ sho’.

Uni-posca Paint Marker Pen: This is the paint pen I use. I love the different weights and thicknesses you can experiment with, as well as the option of having a super drippy artwork, or a very clean artwork – it’s all down to how long you keep the pressure on. As they’re relatively inexpensive, they’re the perfect paint pen to get started with!

Sakura Pigma Microns: there’s not really much I can recommend in terms of brands when it comes to Microns, as Microns are Microns! The best thing to do is experiment with thickness, you’ll find you’ll naturally gravitate towards a certain weight that complements your art style.
iPad Pro Apps
Procreate is the holy grail of iPad art apps. They’ve got it figured out. They’ve incorporated the best drawing/painting elements of Photoshop (layers, blending modes etc), the most natural and organic feeling digital brushes (both default and the ability to download and create your own), and the engine powering it all results in zero lag whatsoever when using the Apple Pencil. Definitely my number one recommendation if you own an iPad.
