Thanks again everyone !
Ok i think i noticed something about my tools -
1. Ebony pencil is smooth as hell, great for finishing work and adding strong lines but potentially disastrous for gesture as it may flow too freely on the ingram bon paper while instantly putting a dark tone, not really good for the way i build up forms from the gesture through constant pass overs. Might try to do bigger gestures with it but i doubt it’ll change a thing.
2. Blue col erase on fabriano small sketch book seems to give me wonders for shading, it works well with this type of low end sketch book (the other brand feels as if it has a better texture.)
3. Brushpen inking on both bristol and ingram bond papers feel much better than the fabriano sk book. Bristol might remain the top tier option for inking as i dont get any line dispatch/weakening when inking. Still interested by the Kuretake brush pen but dont have the funds yet.
Double Ex notes:
Half of Disc 4 has been tumbnailed, starting to work on the pages while the idea is still fresh in-head.
