#InkTober2017 – Days 1 – 5

Last time I was here I was blathering on about showing you my InkTober sketches. Have I done it?  No!

That all changes now. 

I used photos from the Sktchy app as my references. If you have an iPhone or an iPad I highly recommend you download this app and check out the wonderful art being created by all the users. I’m honored to have my pieces included with theirs. 

I will show you all of them… both successes and failures but I’m going to split them up into groups of five… and one last to celebrate Halloween. 

But first, the first five.


Day 1 – #Swift

Day 2 – #Divided


Day 3 – #Poison


Day 4 – #Underwater


Day 5 – #Long

You can’t see that I used pearlescent ink on the flamingo so I took another trying to get the shine. 


Yup… all ink… even the backgrounds. 

Sometimes Life’s Just Busy

Sometimes I’m just busy… it doesn’t mean I’m not drawing. I sometimes just get too preoccupied with other stuff that I forget to post!

My drawing sessions this month consisted of squeezing in a sketch or two whenever I had a spare moment like the week long stretch when I sketched portraits from an app called Sktchy. 

 





I think you can see how more confident I became with my ink line as the week went on.

I’ll share more about Sktchy soon but tomorrow’s October and… October is InkTober! I doubt I can manage daily posting so I’ll be aiming for weekly updates. Stay tuned.
