October has concluded and it kicked my butt. I am working on a few oil paintings that I’d like to get done by the end of the year. Taisa, however, went all in with it. She got some amazing ideas out of it including but not limited to a full blown narrative!
In conclusion of this awesome art community event, it’s very important to use these community events as a learning experience. We implore you guys out there to not use these things as a means of drawing just to say you’ve drawn but to use it to hone specific aspects of your work. That’s my inspirational blerb for today. Have a great week!
We set up a Youtube channel. It’s dedicated to showing footage of our artwork so look forward to seeing speed paintings, speed drawings, and works in progress.
I’m currently working on a series of illustrations chronicling the life of a royal family.
I’m using ink and color pencil on my old standby, Bristol paper. I’ve been playing around with the medium for the past two days and did some experimenting with toned paper.
I want to work on marrying the ink and color more, and using the tone of the paper is just an added bonus. This just goes to show the breakthroughs you can get when you don’t rely on the same techniques all the time. I have a whole sketchbook to fill, the last page will be very interesting.
Tyra took a break from Inking all month and drew this too. She added color pencil to the ink on brown paper.
Please enjoy this drawing of a delicious pumpkin pie. #Inktober
We interrupt this month’s Daily Sketches to bring you Inktober 2015.
This year we are both throwing our hats into the ring and participating. Right now my goal is to draw more details and arrange values to look aesthetically pleasant. Tyra is going to work on framing drawings, conveying form through value, and making cohesive illustrations. #inktober
This is an excuse to draw makeup. I do consider makeup to be art that you draw on your face. These are ink and marker.
I drew a face and studied each feature separately. All but the top row is in ink.
I got back to inking this town drawing.
