I love to draw and want to get better. Would using a Calligraphy pen to draw Chinese landscapes look good? I have seen Calligraphy brushes, but I think that is too hard to set up everyday! Please help me! My birthday is soon and I want to ask for that!

You may be able to draw calligraphical designs, but mainly as linework, script art, it would be like Pen & Ink cross-hatching to do fine details, suggest using both Pen and more so brushes to draw some linework with pen, then use brushes for blends and washes,

it may not be as hard as it appears to use brushes, but either method will require training or practice to develop techniques,
