Inktober Recap

Inktober Tools

I usually do a single post with all my inktober doodles in a final gallery, but I thought this year I would lead off with all the tools I used.  Clockwise from top left:

  • Custom sketchbook cover by Batsugan leather
  • Canson 5.5 x 8.5 sketchbook
  • Rotring 600 0.5mm mechanical pencil
  • Pentel brush pen (did the lion’s share of the inking)
  • Sakura Pigma Micron 005 pen (used for fine details and some shading)
  • Sakura Gelly Roll white pen
  • Pentel 0.5mm blue pencil lead
  • Pocket sized memo pad

One of my many horrible drawing habits is not trying to figure out what I’m drawing before diving in.  Many artists do multiple thumbnails and then various rough sketches on light tables to lock down the composition before starting to work out fine details.  To curb this impulse, I started at least doing tiny gesture sketches in a pocket sized memo pad before starting in my sketchbook.  I feel it has helped me get a better idea of what I’m trying to capture.

Gesture Sketches

Here’s the gallery of all this year’s inktober doodles.
