Ink, 8″ x 10″
Here is my last Inktober drawing. The source image I worked from has the skulls up close on the right but nothing in the background. To give some context to the skulls I made the background a wall of bones, working from ossuary pictures on the internet. Ossuaries are weird. Definition: a container or room into which bones of dead people are placed. Freaky stuff.
Wall of Inktober Drawings
I ran out of steam with the Inktober drawings last week and ended up 4 short of my goal. But looking at this wall I’m happy with the work. I pushed myself to try some new things, worked larger and brought it out of the sketchbooks. I like seeing them all together like this.
A Weeping Devil for Inktober, day 3. It has some things going for it but a bunch of details that are bothering me as well. But it’s Inktober, it’s late, I’m posting it. Day 3 done!
Take a breath, learn from the mistakes, and move on.
