Started drawing my favorite shoujo anime characters looking more human– less anime. Started digitally, but then quickly wanted to draw traditionally. Went with markers then switched to watercolors. Will probably stick with watercolors.
Thought I’d make a post about my two favorite sketch books. If you see me working something out for my illustrations, it’ll be in either of these two sketch books.
These are great for markers, ink, light washes, pens, pencils, etc. Great for quick mixed media stuff- whatever you have on you. I really like texture of the paper and the thickness. I find them a better alternative to moleskin.
#2 Strathmore Visual Journals (Watercolor):
These are great for watercolors! Especially on the go. I like small journals that I can use anywhere (especially when I have time off and I’m travelling). The fact that these are spiral bound makes it easy to prevent bleeding on watercolors. They hold frisket really well also. I did my 30 paintings in 30 days in one of these sketchbooks.
