Ball Points? Answered

You mentioned ball point pens, but I'm having trouble finding them locally (I know Amazon links are there, but I try to buy locally). What is the advantage of ball point pens over felt tip pens in this case? Will it be a problem if I used felt tip pens of the appropriate size?

Ball point pens give you a varying stroke weight that can not be achieved using felt tip pens.

chrisference_ is correct, it's much easier to get varying stroke weights with ballpoints. I find they also make it easier to get quick, smooth strokes the way they're demonstrated in the videos. Some people swear by felt tip pens though, it's all a matter of what feels more comfortable to you.
