Inktober Day#22

Day 22

google image search on tigers - running out of ideas - things I want to do - in the limited time frame that is available to me - if I want to get a drawing done each day that is. So sketches - really fast ones, focusing mainly on movement.

Inktober Day#21

Day 21
So.....I have been a naughty boy - I haven't done my homework for the last couple of days....I will see if it is possible to remedy this - making a "catch-up" post or something....
Well for this day 21 I did a giraffe with its head high up in the sky. Last piece of heavy watercolor paper so wont be doing more work with ink and water for now.....
I got a little impatient and so the ink and water got a little "runny" and things that weren't supposed to started to merge....wanted to start over but alas last piece of paper forced me to finish it this way.

Day 15
A sheep - ink and water on paper. Two "versions" today - scan and photo from mobile....actually thinks the photo is better than the scan.

Inktober Day#14 (&13)

Day 14 (&13)

So since I didn't do anything yesterday I made 2 sketches today. Simple shapes - I really like the design of the mouse, but the drawing itself was pretty rushed. For some reason it felt better drawing the bear.
Two weeks and bit to go....I have to say I am starting to doubt weather or not I will "make" it.

Inktober Day#12

Day 12
So we are moving away from the sea and into the woodland realm. Starting with a rather larger "critter" - the Moose. This one is pretty pleased with himself - and why shouldn't he be? He is a magnificent beast.
Both sketch and the more "final" result. Really happy with this one - got the sketch the way I wanted it from the get go. Only two minor kinks; again I got a hold of color pencil instead of my col-erase - and that show in the ink. The other thing is the fact that both my light grey markers seems to be due for a retirement.

Inktober Day#11

Day 11

And to round of this weekends theme with creatures of the sea; it's a happy whale - Yeah.
Perhaps slightly overweight, plenty of blubber - so no more krill for you today mister!

Inktober Day#10

Day 10
A crab - apparently I have got a sea food platter theme going on this weekend.....

Inktober Day#9

Day 9
It's a squid....evil looking - with a bowler hat. Really not much to say about this one - Went through some of my old sketches and this guy was among them. Pretty pleased with how he turned out - only thing is a missing that will make him an....heptapus I guess?

Inktober Day#7

Day 7
More Ink, water, brushes and pens....had a lot of fun - but none of it really worked for me to night - made three "drawings" I call this one "No Ideas on a Wednesday Evening" It is a....I have no idea what it is - but like when you watch clouds and all of a sudden you can see a dog etc. this blob turned into a birds head and a dinosaur/godzilla-like creature before my very eyes.....and now I must sleep.
Hope to do better tomorrow :)

Inktober Day#6

Day 6
Play with old fashioned pen, brush and some ink that has seen better days (almost all the pigment in the ink has over the years formed a hard ball leaving only grey-ish ink-water behind.)
In case you are wondering; it's a tree and some clouds.....actually a fun and free little exercise, think I just might do more of this.

Inktober Day#5

Day 5
Today's sketch is a happy rhino. And now while I am still high on the fumes from the markers I shall go to bed and have magnificent dreams.

Inktober Day#4

Day 4
Due to family visit during the weekend I didn't get around to do a drawing yesterday - as a penance I've made 2 today. Both sketches a little rushed as I am currently fresh out of ideas, a little tired and in need of getting my dishes done before going to bed.
So today's selection features a little angry monster-type dude, and a sad-ish triceratops.

Inktober Day#2

Day 2
It's a cowboy. Inked directly on the sketch - worked a lot better, so I'm pretty pleased with that.
The face of the cowboy works, but there where no clear idea behind his pose - and what should he do with his hands. And it shows. Also the use of both gray maker and the black crosshatches.....well there is still room for improvement.
But I'm still in the race ;)

Inktober Day#1

Day 1
So day #1 in Inktober 2015. It's a semi sad croc. I had a sketch of him lying around, a sketch that I really liked. But something happens when I decide to "clean up" my work - I feel like the drawing...well dies in a way. I think it is because I want the drawing to be to "perfect" instead of just making a drawing that works.
And so this is one of my goals in doing this challenge - a drawing a day - preferably a sketch - no clean up, no old sketch that I re-do and in the process ends up killing.
A perfect sketch with all its imperfections :)

I didn't succeed to day - not entirely, but I made the drawing, I got started - pats myself on the.  shoulder
