Tone it down

In my continued quest to use up the supplies I already have, my dailies – for the past month or so, have mostly been in one of my toned sketchbooks.

“I like you, Tombo! I like you as much as I am hungry for instant noodles!”

So they’ve been mostly sketched, inked…maybe a touch-up with white colored pencil or gel pen. Or, on the rare occasion, maybe an actual marker.

Kweh.

I find stickers and washi tape look particularly good on toned paper!

Other than trying to fill up these sketchbooks (I maaaaaay have a few I’ve bought compulsively during sales)…let’s just say some of my markers have been drying up…

I’ve definitely been enjoying just drawing with pencil and ink – and the toned paper gives it a nice antique-y look. It also forces me to vary line weights, so there’s that – there’s always room to learn and try something new.

“I’ll be in your drawing. Cassian said I had to.”

Well, sure, I could stock up on these markers – but, again, I want to stay the course on this quest. Two more toned sketchbooks to go!

And I still have my watercolors, so color in my drawings are still in the picture.

These are just a few of my toned sketchbook doodles – head on over to my Instagram and Twitter for more! And…if you’ve been enjoying my drawings, come visit my Ko-fi page!

I’ll just take a drip coffee. Or a mocha. I like mochas.
