This is probably the best nib in hand for drawing characters, pretty much an upgrade from the manga G nib. If you are the type of person that loves consistent short small curved strokes and then switching to really long thin lines, the Brause L'ecoliere is the best. The flexibility of this nib is just perfect, not too flimsy and not too rigid. And it holds much more ink than the regular drawing manga nibs. Worth its price, absolutely. I used Zig Cartoonist Sumi ink for testing this nib out. Perfect match.
