Day 21: “Treasure”
Another piece I absolutely loved doing! Underwater scene showing a pirate diving and reaching out toward a wooden box full of gold on the ocean bed, a sunken ship in the background, the hull of his rowing boat underneath the surface, and light beams. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen, and a Slim Frixion pen in red for his belt.
Day 22: “Ghost”
Another of my favourite piece! I drew a sullen woman in front of a mirror and the ghost of her husband appears behind her in her reflection, standing right behind her, his hands on her shoulders, looking at her lovingly. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and outlined with a 0.05 mm black Uni Pin pen.
Day 23: “Ancient”
Not super inspired… but could not resist drawing Antinous as Osiris. In doing so, I learned about him and kept in mind that when he drowned in the Nile at the age of 20, he was raised to the status of God by emperor Hadrian, who was his lover. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake, black ink Pentel Brushpen to fill the background, and a 0.05 mm black Uni pin pen for the outline.
Day 24: “Dizzy”
So far, I have been really happy with this series and I loved doing this piece too. It’s a man progressing along a cliff, on narrow wooden planks and holding a chain. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen, both of which I blended in places, and outlined using a black 0.05 mm Uni Pin pen.
Day 25: “Tasty”
I very much dislike the abstract prompts! What a horrendous piece: a meal of dim sum, gyoza, soup and tea. I used a sepia line maker.
