Wandering Through a Fantasy World

Doodles and Musings

The con starts tomorrow, and I’m sitting here at work today drafting a cloak pattern…orz

Sorry for my recent inactivity—had lots going on, not to mention cosplay (that’s taking much longer than anticipated).  After this weekend, I should be able to get back into the swing of things.  Anyone who sees this going to AWA, have a great time!

Testing more random clearance art supplies.  This time it’s Pacific Arc’s water soluble graphite sticks in 2B, 4B, and 6B.  They’re pretty freeing to draw with, since they feel like those chunky preschool crayons.  They take water very easily, and with a bit of practice, I’m sure I could figure out just how much pigment to add to get the right shade when adding water.  Terrible composition from drawing straight with the graphite, and the shading is terrible from not knowing how these things would work (not to mention super-cheap watercolor paper).  The sticks aren’t very forgiving, though, so watch for smudges.

Testing of a Graphitint pencil (#01 Port) on 90 lb vellum.  Before and after water was applied.  You can get a good amount of depth with just one shade, especially if you bare down hard while it’s dry.  I only have a handful of Graphitints, but I have a set of 24 Inktense which I may try out next.  I don’t know if these are something I’d use for “finished” pieces, but they are great for sketches and studies.
