You may want to ask, what happened to Days 14 to 17? Well, my back happened. I have some problems with my vertebrae and now and then I overdo it (or not, sometimes it is just a normal movement, like tying your shoelaces, or walking to buy milk), so I lost those days to back pain, painkillers and a mist of aching.
I will, at the end of Inktober, catch up with those days.
For now, here is:
INKTOBER DAY 18: the Ink Goblin
Done in pen and China ink and marker, this naughty goblin lives in inkpots and now and then goes on to adventures. He draws each petal carefully, and each pattern opens the way to a new a realm.
Missing a few days was hard, but that’s how it goes, life hits unexpectedly, but one can get back up and pick up from where she left.
As always, if you want to suggest an idea for a prompt, just post it below 🙂
Thanks for following!
Three more sketches! I promise these are the last cats for a while (well, unless you ask me to draw more). I am still posting more than one day together so that I don’t overwhelm your feed, but do let me know if you prefer a daily posting.
I still haven’t got myself decent ink pens – so many to chose from! I can’t buy them all, so I’m slowly cutting the numbers down. The following are done in pen (again, your average writing pen), no pencil, and some ink. In the last one, the ink is digital. I think it came out interesting. Working with silhouettes and having them revealing something else than the shape they are contouring. I like it, and will work more on it.
DAY 6 – SATIN on Sofa
Satin is a black cat, drawing her is always a challenge. She often sits by my side on the sofa, so the perspective was interesting.
DAY 7 – CATURDAY!
Day 7 was Saturday, so…Caturday! This is a very sketchy sketch, but I think of reworking it with lots of inking, because I like playing with lettering. And some more cat-anatomy study will be good.
DAY 8 – ROUGH KITTY
With this one, I wanted to put more expression in the cat’s face, and playing around with digital ink for the black panel was interesting. Also started experimenting with the silhouette, adding variations (and using digital ink in white). It almost feels, to me, as if the white shape is the cat, not moving perhaps, asleep. But inside, there is always a cat whose senses are alert.
Next week, something different! Thanks for following, and if you would like to see something in particular, just put it in the comments 🙂 thanks!
