I try to be careful but using a small portable sharpener is okay when you are creating art on the go but doesn’t make sense in the studio. So I purchased this Mitsubishi KH-20 sharpener on Amazon for $24.77 when I saw it recommended by another local color pencil artist. It arrived yesterday and this morning was my first chance at playing with it. As I already knew to be the case, the box and instructions are all in Japanese and so I tried to figure it out myself. That didn’t work so well so I then turned to YouTube.
I found a excellent video by Baylee Jae that answered all my questions. I’ve included her link below if you decided to check out the sharpener in more detail. As for me, I’m a happy girl and my pencils will soon be sharp as tacks.
I will leave you with a couple of cute little sketches that I have finished just this week.
