Here are a couple more Inktober drawings. The above drawing was done today. Lots of strategic ink smudging with the fingers in this one. The subject is from Sktchy, and she is doing her own October challenge: 31 days of Halloween makeup.
As mentioned previously the most difficult thing for me about daily drawing challenges is posting the work regularly. I have three days worth! Instead of making three separate posts I thought I would just put them together here. These are all Sktchy inspired drawings, like all of my other Inktober drawings this year. Read More
This was yesterday’s Inktober drawing. I didn’t finish in time but I gave myself a pass because it was my birthday.
Rick, the subject of this drawing, is probably the most drawn person on Sktchy. This is number 1,830! Rick just has a super interesting face, makes great expressions, and enjoys dressing in various costumes for inspiration photos. Here he is made up to resemble Kratos from the God of War video game.
I’m having fun with the red ink this week.
Here is my drawing for Inktober, Day 1. Going to make this short because I feel like there are 47,000 different things I need to get done this afternoon.
For the ink and paper nerds here are my materials: Pentel Pocket Brush, Pentel Color Brush with grey ink, Platinum Preppy fountain pen with waterproof ink, spatter with Speedball Super Black, all on Strathmore Bristol- smooth.
I participated in an art journal workshop last month called 30 Pages/30 Days. It was quite fun and helped reinforce the importance of a daily art practice. The drawing above is from Day 25.
“Ain’t No Wifey” was drawn in a Strathmore watercolor book. The inspiration for this drawing came from Sktchy. The sweet face, the leopard print coat, the hat and the cool little Vans shoes hooked me and I had to draw her. The foreshortening at this angle is tricky! Most of the line work was done with waterproof ink, and then I re-stated some of the marks with water-soluble ink where I wanted it to bleed. I created the tones and washes with a water brush loaded with coffee.
The day 20 prompt for Inktober was “deep”. I went with Sktchy for inspiration today. This was one of their curated suggestions for deep, as in deep in thought.
This drawing is from Sunday to honor the Chinese New Year. Read More
