Rogério Lupo has produced another Guide to Botanical Illustration - this time using pen and ink. The Portuguese title is Apostila Bico de Pena. (© Rogério Lupo 2018 - All rights reserved. Sale prohibited. Free distribution.) The title contains the link to the page where you view it and download it.
[UPDATE: November 2018: NOW IN ENGLISH - SEE my blog post dated 25 November 2018 - Scientific Illustration Instruction by Rogério Lupo which also references his new supporting video on YouTube which has English subtitles.]
His scientific illustration guide to equipment and materials comments on the use of a dip pen nib - which Google translate insists on calling a "feather beak" - but basically a nib which flexes when pressure is used so as to produce fine lines of different thickness and character.
Below is the Portuguese version.
[UPDATE: Novembr 2018 - You can also now find and download the English version on this link Graphite and its Possibilities Applied to Scientific Illustrations]
This is a FREE Guidebook. Please note that Rogério Lupo has asserted his copyright and any SALE of this Guidebook is strictly prohibited
Below are the two descriptions of the Guide in Portuguse and Google Translate English.
Guia de curso com informações completas sobre os bicos de pena mais especializados para traços precisos usados na ilustração científica. São tratados assuntos como marcas de bicos, de tintas e papéis, procedimentos para seleção do material na hora da compra, restauração, cuidados, exercícios e tudo que se precisa saber para começar a conhecer e praticar.
Course guide with complete information on the most specialized pen nozzles for precise strokes used in scientific illustration. Subjects such as nozzle marks, paints and papers, procedures for material selection at the time of purchase, restoration, care, exercise and all that one needs to know to get to know and practice are treated. (according to Google Translate)
Note that Google Translate takes the portuguese he uses and translates the word as
What I like about the Guide
Note - this was all identified using Google Translate!)
What I like about this Guide is that he discusses:
All in all it's a lot more information than is often available - written by somebody who is fastidious about the use of the kit he uses for illustration. I'm a huge fan of those who really care about the quality of the materials they use - and want to share what they know with others.
You can obtain the Guide from Slideshare (as with his Graphite for Scientific Illustration Guide) - just click the link in the title. As before to access the free download you will need to be logged in to an account with Slideshare or a Linked In account also gives you access to download
You can also follow his announcements about new classes and guides on Facebook by following his Facebook Page Rogério Lupo - Ilustração Científica.
