I ended up with this Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. It’s honestly not my fave, though I do love that brand. They didn’t have any open samples at the store and instead of being practical and opening the plastic on one, I bought the sketchbook all willy-nilly. I do like watercolors, but am not crazy about toothy watercolor paper, especially in a sketchbook. The paper feels clunky and absorbs too much ink and color. I like when the ink kind of pools on your paper and can be built up without leaving defined lines. So I am not all that pleased with how this ink sketch turned out. You can see my red lines and I don’t much care for that. Also my paper is not yellow. These are the dangers of working in incandescent light.
Anywhosen. India ink and water. I will try and do another ink sketch tomorrow on different paper.
I’ve been super busy lately. I took a little break from posting yesterday and it was nice. I did start something, but didn’t end up finishing it. I had a doctors appointment which took half the day and after it was over I was just not into doing anything. I do however have a lot of sketches in my book. So here is a little compilation of doodles from a page. Some good, some bad, some meh. Just keep drawing just keep drawing, drawing drawing drawing.
More sketchbook sketches. I always liked Ursula the sea witch, she has such presence. I think she might have been unlucky in love to have turned into such a cantankerous sea witch. Maybe her “garden” of poor unfortunate souls were really big jerks that deserved it. I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Tombow, col-erase, and Faber Castell brush pens.
This used to be one of my favorite movies EVER. It was on a VHS tape with the Velveteen Rabbit. You can watch the awesome 1975 Chuck Jones version HERE! Anyway. Mongooses are sort of ugly. I never realized that until the sketch_dailies challenge yesterday. Woof.
