A reliable drawing pen beloved around the world

Featured Product

The Pigma series first launched in 1982 with Pigma Micron, and has since evolved to include a wide variety of pen nib types. You might not know this, but the Pigma Micron is actually the world’s first pigment fineliner.
So, imagine the world you want to draw and pick up your Pigma. Throw everything into your artwork. It’s great to just draw without worrying about whether the ink will fade or smudge. Pigma’s reliable quality offers you perfect support in your creative activities.



Deep black

The deep black ink in Pigma makes an impact. The deep black stands out whether used for the outlines in Manga and illustrations or for hatching in sketches. Pigma black won’t fade even if you use markers or watercolors over it.

So waterproof

Have you ever worried about whether your outlines would smudge as you were painting or coloring them in? With highly waterresistant Pigma, your works will never suffer this fate. Enjoy carefree painting. (Don’t forget to let the outlines dry before adding in color.)

Smooth drawing

Pigma ink flows out smoothly even with light pressure. You can draw quickly, smoothly and comfortably. They really do make hatching and drawing in fine lines feel more fun.



Q. Could you share us your favorite technique?

A. Yes, it’s “Various expression of lines”

By changing the way you draw, you can express various textures even only with black lines.
I use the following techniques to express my favorite part of the motif or the part I want to draw.
The trick is to observe the motif carefully before drawing it.

  • 1. Fluffy fur

    ・Draw a line toward the direction of the hair.
    ・The key is to shift the lines slightly and make them cross.
    ・The hardness of the hair can be adjusted by the thickness of the line.

  • 2.Rugged, rough surface

    ・Make the pen stand up and draw a solid line.
    ・Draw lines in an arc. Make them cross each other and layer.
    ・As a highlight, leave the rounded grain without any lines drawn.

  • 3. Smooth surface

    ・Draw all the lines in the same direction (do not make them cross).
    ・Draw the lines along the cross section.
    ・By adjusting the thickness of the line, you can express hardness or softness.
