higgins black magic

December ArtSnacks Challenge - This month is super busy, but I couldn’t wait to finally try out watercolor pencils 😀 This box was great. I already bought a set of Stabilo pens in preparation for my future bullet journal.

Supplies: Caran d'Ache Discovery Set, Higgins Black Magic ink pump marker, Stabilo Point 88 Fineliner, and a Magnesium Long Point sharpener. I also used a Derwent waterbrush.

December’s artsnacks challenge!!! My favourite this month was the caran d'ache supracolor watersoluble colour pencils. They are smooth and really easy to use and you can use the blender or water to blend and get different effects and textures. The Higgins black magic marker is waterproof when dry and dries to a matte finish. The stabilo fineliner works well for fine detail and works on top of the pencils as well. And the KUM sharpener is an essential for any artist’s toolbox


For the October artsnacks box , I sketched Edith Cushing, from the last movie I have watched, the Crimson Peak, which was, esthetically beautiful! Then I used the cool stuff in the box, I specially enjoy the Higgins black magic ink and the cretacolors, oh and the Carandache pencil too, I struggle a bit using the Pigma brush pen cause I need more practice with it, I worked on a color brownish paper, it was fun, now waiting for my November parcel

Inktober2015 Day13 – Jack Frost

Oh! Jack Frost, please come and smite the ragweed. I mean, seriously, this Fall allergy season has felt like a low-grade flu for a couple of weeks now. Shit’s gotta stop.

This was part of an @artsnacksblog challenge, too. Higgins black magic ink, Connoisseur bamboo watercolor brush, Cretacolor colored pencil, and Sakura brush pen.
