I'll keep this brief. Paintbrushes hate me. So when trying to do recesses for things i've decided to use pens or markers? I've heard something about Gundam Marker and Pigma Micron Pens. Any you reccomend for small valleys like firewarrior armor and devilfish?
I use the micron pigma pens (size .005) quite a bit. They will fit in the recesses. However it is hell for the pens. Expect the tip to take quite a bit of abuse. My suggestion is to use black ink and a small brush. With a bit of practice you will probably find the results better and easier.

I also use the Pigma Micron .005 pens for my figures, although only to draw details on shoulder pads and purity seals. For those pesky recesses I use a fine detail brush and very watered-down black ink; I imagine it might be difficult to blend the pens with the paint properly, so I always avoided using them for shading.
With a bit of practise it isnâ€™t really difficult to use ink; just remember to mix it with lots of water, and donâ€™t be afraid to â€˜overdoâ€™ it; ink always looks like thereâ€™s too much of it, but when it dries itâ€™ll look just fine. Apply a few drops of ink, let it dry, apply a few drops more; using many subsequent layers will get you the desired effect. A hairdryer, held at proper distance, will speed up the process a lot.

Well i don't know why you think that paint brushes hate you, although i have had a set of dice that hated me but that is a diffrent story . I would advise you try to continue with the brushes it has taken me a while but as i have gone on my painting skills have increased quite a bit since i started, just remember that practice makes perfect.
