TLDR: Octopus sketch done in a Moleskin sketchbook (3.5"x5.5") with 4H Staedtler pencil (that I forgot to erase once I was done) and Micron Pens sizes 01 & 03.
I have the bad
habit of falling in love with a new sketchbook, buying it, drawing a
couple pictures in it, and then never getting around to filling it. Many
of my sketchbooks never get more than half a dozen pages sketched on.
The same thing happens to me with other art materials. As a result, I've
put myself on a bit of a self-imposed art supply ban until I start
filling up the sketchbooks I already own and using up my current
found this nice little old forgotten sketchbook over the holidays and decided it
would be the next one I'd fill. A 3.5"x5.5" Moleskine sketchbook that I
would have bought back in college, back when everything I drew was so
small that I'm surprised I haven't gone blind as a result. Perfect size for my
octopus is the first new picture drawn in it so far. Knowing me it'll probably be the only somewhat finished looking drawing that ends up in the sketchbook. The rest will probably end up looking pretty loose and rough like all my other sketchbooks if I ever get around to filling it.
