Inktober 2017 Week 2

Drawings from Week 2 of #inktober2017. I’m trying not to spend too long on these drawing. Including re-reading the story/summary, research, rough sketch and finished ink I am spending less then 2 hrs on each.

Day 8: The Twelve Dancing Princesses

Day 9: The Frog Prince

Day 10: The Little Mermaid

Day 11: The Emperor’s New Clothes

Day 12: The Princess and the Pea

Day 13: Little Red Riding Hood

Day 14: Thumbelina

I decided to keep going with the PITT pens. Even the smallest one doesn’t have a very fine point so I can’t spend too long adding in tiny details.

 


Inktober 2017 Week 1

#Inktober2017 Week 1

This year I’ve chosen ‘Fairytales’ as my theme. Some I know very well and some I am enjoying learning more about as I do them.

Day 1: Beauty and the Beast

Day 2: Cinderella

Day 3: The Ugly Duckling

Day 4: Rumpelstiltskin

Day 5: The Snow Queen

Day 6: Hansel and Gretel

Day 7: Snow White

For theses drawings I’ve been experimenting with some PITT pens I received as a gift and a cheap Japanese calligraphy brush pen. I have been enjoying the PITT brush pen and the calligraphy brush but I can’t get the fine line quality I want from the felt tips. I’m torn between sticking with them for consistency or going back to by trusty micro pens.


Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video !

Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video!

I wasn’t able to get this video posted before the end of Oct but I thought I would still share it. Learning from my first video – the camera is moved to my left side so the drawing isn’t covered by my hand and I’ve tried to have more light. Nearly all of my inktober drawing were done after I finished everything else for the day meaning they were done often late into the night.

The video has been sped up 16x to show a little over half and hour of inking. My tools for all of my inktober drawings-Castell XF 0.7 mechanical pencil, Mircon pens on toned paper and A3 LED light pad.

I hope to share more process videos in the future and perhaps some tutorials as well.

 


Inktober Day 31 – Ghoul (Back Dated)

*I was fairly certain that I posted it on the day but that post seems to have disappeared. So here it is again!*

#inktober2016 Day 31 – Ghoul

Hungry, the creature feasts on the long dead found in a forgotten tomb.

Happy Halloween!

With a mixture of relief and sadness another Inktober comes to an end. It was a challenge to find time to do a drawing each day but I am really pleased that I could see it through. As rushed as some of these drawing are I am happy with all of them. It has been great practice and really good to draw on paper everyday.

The mighty Kraken, a rare sight to be seen, its size beyond measure hides in the deep.

I finished off this drawing too late to post last night…I’m struggling a little to find time to do these everyday but I’m determined to see out the challenge.
