Sketchblog Archive for Tools: Tombow Fudenosuke

The Tombow Fudenosuke comes in a few variants, but I almost exclusively use the hard tip brush in black ink. Here’s my review of the pen.

Drawings to test out the Newpen Ginza Pro brush pens.

Bunch of doodles and coloring samples from the ArtSkills double-ended Brush-tip Marker review. I usually only test a few singles of a marker, but it’s nice to have a few more colors to play with sometimes. Limited palette is always a nice exercise in experimentation and compromise. Pink is a decent stand-in for a grey as far as darkening other colors go.

Wanted to doodle a cover for this year’s project since I think this is the closest I’ve ever come to the spirit of the event, despite 17 prior years participating. Didn’t have the energy for color though. I also still don’t really know what any of my characters look like either. I don’t really visualise much when I write…

It’s been so long since I’ve made new characters… that weird inconsistent stage where I’m still trying to figure out what they’re supposed to look like is kinda frustrating. Is this dude’s hair wavy or not? Is it white or blond? How long is it?? Everything is different every time I draw him, but I don’t know which is right.
