I’ve been making time to do a small ink sketch every day for the month of October. Here are the results from week 2.
I haven’t been very productive with creating art lately. I blame it on my mountain bike and watching too many videos of other people making art.
I made this purple heart the other day while I was watching a movie. I had no idea what I was going to make. The first step was to just make some purple marks. I started doodling with the black marker and eventually I had this heart shape.
Here are a few new doodles on deli paper (that was printed with a gelli plate).
Testing out some new brush pen that I ordered from JetPens a few weeks back. They are all from Japan. These will used to draw animals as they have a soft tip and can produce thin to thick lines depending on the pressure applied. I still need to pick a pen or marker to decorate the skull. I have some other markers that might be better for that job.
Testing the effects of water on each ink.
I like the purpley color that the Pilot ink makes when water is applied.
Work has been sucking the fun out of life lately so I haven’t made any art for a few days.
For this post I’ve included two pieces I did awhile back during my cat phase, each image has 20 animals all on the same sheet! It required a little planning and measuring (and starting over again about 3 times) but it was a lot of fun. I think I will do one of these layouts for dogs and bunnies too.
For these little blob animals, I do the watercolor first and after it dries I outline the animal and it acquires its personality.
