Sketchblog

A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

Rabbit WIP

Rabbit wip

I’ve made peace with the fact that I’m absolutely not finishing this by New Year’s, but at least there is finally ink on a page. I’ve been fighting the composition for this one for like three years, lol.

Chrysanthemum stamp

Messing around with block printing in the form of stamp making. This is with a cool little kit Essdee makes.

I wish the discs were a bit thicker, but they’re definitely super soft and the blades cut more finely than I’d expect. The annoying thing about using the baren to “hold” the stamp is that you can’t use it as a baren at the same time, which makes burnishing the very center of the stamp harder.

Still don’t remember what any of the tools in PaintBBS do… I know there’s a way to mask lines, but I haven’t figured it out again yet. I think the problem is that I’ve been using PaintBBS instead of Shi-Painter though and am mis-remembering because their interfaces are really similar. 🤔

The rest of this is just me rambling about Gundam…

Got some basic linocut supplies to play around with. Gone through a few iterations of refining this block and still want to do some adjustments, but it’s been a good learning experience.

I’ll probably write a proper blog post about this eventually, but in the meantime, random test prints will be included with orders of $25+ online and in person (see me this Sunday at Black Owl Market!) for as long as I have them.

Drawing of a wolf howling with Zebra Mildliner Brush and Pentel Brush Pen

Flippin’ through a sketchbook looking for something else, saw this and couldn’t remember if I posted it after the review, then realised I never actually even started writing the review for this pen. OTL

I’ve been working on a lot of different reviews concurrently and forgot about this one I guess… it’s still kind of low-priority to me compared to the others, but I only assume people are probably more interested in some of the other stuff than this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Haven’t been able to spend much time on Art Fight this year. Getting fired back for my mass attacks is skewing my attack ratio a bit, but I’m tryin’ to be less neurotic about things that don’t matter haha…
