Ok, so calling this brush 'Sumi' probably is a misnomer. Real Sumi brushes are more solid and have more of an ink wash look. But this is a big brush with lots of brushy detail.
I enjoy doing loose sketching with this brush on my Tablet PC from life (particularly on the train home). It has a lot of variation and discourages a lot of overworking of the illustration. Just focus on your subject and get into the Zen of the brush.
That being said, if you screw up I have also included a Sumi Eraser in this set so you can remove while still retaining the overall quality of the brush. I prefer to use it very sparingly, but I am sure you will find your own technique.
