Sketchbook Stuff

I started a couple of new sketchbooks this weekend. One is a watercolor sketchbook and one is some little sketchbook I picked up at Barnes & Noble for a ridiculously small amount of money. The Barnes & Noble sketchbook actually has really nice, smooth paper that is fun to draw on. I have something of a love/hate relationship with sketchbooks, but I'm going to try to draw in them every day from now on. Here are a couple of pages I scanned:

Some col-erase Betties (I also used brush & ink, marker, and prismacolor art stix that I still have from the caricature-stand days):

And a couple of pencil/watercolor experiments. There is so much I'd like to learn about watercolor:


And here are a couple of drawings I did for homework for the Story Development for Animation class (which is a really awesome class! It's taught by Rad Sechrist at the Concept Design Academy)

Colored it with markers and tried out this really cool pen called the Pilot Super (thanks for the tip, Maha!), and it can be found at Kinokuniya bookstores. Kinokuniya carries a variety of great Japanese brush pens, gel pens, and markers, many of which are a tad pricey. Fortunately these pilot pens only cost around $2.
