I'm quite proud of how easily I drew Kiba himself. I didn't even look at him; I was able to draw fairly true-to-life from memory :D The meow-bubble came along without many hiccups but it took a really long time to fill in the amount of space I wanted to. My intent was to get across just how NOISY Kiba can be! All the cat-talk was based specifically on Kiba's vocalizations, not just generically chosen cat noises.
I didn't mention it in my first Inktober post but on top of the mechanical pencil, I've also been using an eraser to clean up the pencil lines after all the inking is done. As with the pencil I'm using, even though it's not from the Inktober box, it still matches the ArtSnacks theme because I received it in a previous monthly box :3 So, after I cleaned up my Noisy Kiba drawing, I finished it off with a few small detail lines and my signature, the date, and a title using the Multiliner.
Before I forget, I want to voice my satisfaction with the paper in the Inktober Denik sketchbook. I was worried that the wet sumi ink would bleed through since I always apply it rather thickly to ensure an even look but I've had no such issues! It doesn't even show through on the back of the page, much less leave marks on the succeeding leaf. I can't say whether other inks or wetter media would fare as well (watercolor may not bleed through, but I have a feeling it would wrinkle the page something awful) but for now it doesn't matter since the only things I'm using in this sketchbook have already been tried and shown themselves up to the Inktober task.
