See Ink (disambiguation) for other related uses.
The inkwell is a black jar with a yellow skull-and-crossbones, with a yellow mouth. Inside it is a yellow pen with a sepia-tinted end.
First appearing in Chapter 1: Moving Pictures, the inkwell is one of the six items Henry must collect in order to turn on the Ink Machine. The inkwell is located in the Animation Department, on the desk in the corner of the room.
The inkwell later appeared in the third and fourth chapter. None of them can be obtained as an appropriate item:
- In Chapter 3: Rise and Fall, the inkwell reappears in the third chapter as an unobtainable background item, commonly used in the environments.
- In Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders, the inkwell reappeared in the fourth chapter as seen from the teaser screenshot, and remains as an unobtainable background item.
- The texture for the record's description area center is used for the top of the inkwell's pen. This can be spotted much visibly when using the modeling program.
- The skull-and-crossbones marks indicate that the ink is toxic and not safe to consume.
- Chapter 1: Moving Pictures
- From one of the remastered screenshots with the view of the mini workroom from the corridor paths, the inkwell is seen on the right side of the animation desk. Although the inkwell was not randomly found from this room in the game.
- Also in the latest remastered screenshot for the update on the release of Chapter 4, the inkwell is seen on the barrel next to the Joey Drew Studios trademark from the foyer location. This was never seen in-game, as the inkwell is only located in the Animation Department.
- In older updates until Chapter 4's full release, the inkwell's location is randomized:
- Ink Machine Loading Dock: Located in the right side of the room next to the cabinet.
