Depends on the effect and the material you're trying to render. For really fine lines on weapons Pitt pens are great. I'll also use a 01 micron, hunt 102, or just about anything that will give me the effect. I don't like being tied to any one type of tool. I use a lot of different pens, probably too many but they all give me different effects. Newer pens will give you a really crisp line. Older ones can give you some really cool textures in your line. I would just experiment with what works best for you. I'm still experimenting all the time, still discovering new things. That's part of the joy of the art form.

thank you very much brian.
the truth is that pen seems everything you do, but I'm glad that you use the pen, because I do not get along with feathers.
's all pretty technical work, now I realize the need for rules and pens of all sizes.

hello brian
I love your work.
I like the acrylic for white. but be careful cleaning as you said.
I try to make a comic of 48 pages, the script is good is of an unknown but got along.
going to be a long, well lengthy.
but there are some things I can help and are simple for you.
one of them is about the buildings that makes lark. I think they are by computer.
Do you know anything about this?
Thank you.
hear is curious but there is nothing sodier yours before winter, it's like you come out of nowhere to ink with lark.

Thanks Fanlo!
I actually don't use acrylic for the white but rather Dr. Martins bleed proof white:…. I can control the consistency better and achieve the affect I desire. 
Lark, along with a lot of other comic artist use sketch-up by google: Construct the building in the program and print out the blueline outline to ink.   
I got my start by working with Stefano Gaudiano. I assisted him on inks while he was working with Lark at Marvel. When Stefano left Marvel I was the natural choice to take over. 
I just finished a run at Dark Horse so will be posting some new stuff soon. 
Look forward to seeing what you do with your 48 pager! 
If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

All the best,
