Drawing Techniques: a Guide
Liquid Media: Quill Pen  
Quill pens were made from the feathers of a variety of different birds: the goose, the swan, the raven or the crow. Each was chosen for its special characteristics. Raven or crow feathers were chosen for the finest work, while goose quills were the most common.
