Hi! I'm Victoria. I post art related stuff including my work and personal posts dealing with art.Feel free to shoot me an ask if you've got any questions, or if you just want to say hi.
deadlymilkhotel asked: May I ask what kind of sketchbook you use for your drawings? They're extremely impressive!
Sure! I use a Pentalic Traveler Pocket Journal, 6 x 8. I believe it’s 70 full pages, which is quite a few pages. The pages themselves are quite thin, slightly thicker than a sheet of printer paper, but I have a feeling it’s coated with something that prevents pretty much anything from bleeding through. (even copic markers to an extent!)
That’s what I love the most about this sketchbook. You can basically slap anything on there and it sticks pretty well and doesn’t make a mess. I don’t particularly like how charcoal goes on there, but it’s a really fine tooth surface, which doesn’t deal with charcoal well generally.
That said, since the paper’s relatively thin, it’s prone to buckling under water load, but it can be flattened out pretty easily later. It’s also not a sketchbook that lays flat, unfortunately, but for it’s price of 5-10 bucks depending on where you go, it’s a really good deal. I don’t think Blick stocks the kind I have…they’re harder to find than other sketchbooks like moleskines in art stores, but they’re definitely available online. Another note, the color cover versions of the sketchbook have a thinner cover, which can be annoying.
I hope that helps!
