Ink, 8″ x 10″

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.

Ink, 8″ x 10″

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.

Ink and coffee on watercolor paper, 5″ x 8″

“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.
