crowmask

Ink, 8″ x 10″

A woman in a crow mask for Inktober, day 2.  I spent a couple of hours on another drawing that just wasn’t working out the way I wanted.  This one felt rushed because of it, especially the torso.  That’s ok- I’m mostly pleased with it.  Besides, I had to have something done for day 2!  It’s too early to fall behind.  The failed drawing still interests me so I’ll revisit it in a couple of days or maybe next week.

Materials: Pilot Parallel Pen with waterproof ink, Pentel Pocket Brush, Pentel Color brushes in grey and black, Speedball Super Black for the spatter.  All on Strathmore Bristol- smooth.  That is a lot of “P’s” in those pens!  Now that I think of it my other 2 favorite tools are P’s also: PITT artist pens and  Platinum Preppy fountain pens.

INK17graceful

I am determined to catch up on my Inktober drawings and posts this weekend.  The prompt for day 17 was “graceful” and I chose Princess Buttercup on horseback in The Princess Bride.  Sometimes things don’t work out the way you want and you just have to call it done and move on.

Your feed will be flooded with my other catching up posts later today.  Three other Inktober drawing’s are complete and not yet posted, and another will be done this afternoon.  That is the plan, anyway!

INK13teeming copy

Ink, 7″ x 4.5″

Day 13 of the Inktober drawing challenge is here and the prompt is “teeming”.  This scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom certainly fits the bill, though the creepy crawlies are hidden in darkness and merely suggested by the crunching sound.

Short Round: “It feels like I step on fortune cookies.”

Jones: “It’s not fortune cookies…” Read More
