Inktober 2019 Days 16-20

20 Oct

Day 16: “Wild”

It was high time I drew a baby panda! I used a green ink brush pen from Sketchbox, grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen.

Day 17: “Ornament

Inspiration took ages to come for this prompt. I settled on a bonnet ornament shaped like a Native American’s head. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen.

Day 18: “Misfit”

A strange creature that doesn’t fit in the savanna, with the body of a lion and the head oh an elephant. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen.

Day 19: “Sling”

A piece inspired by how our generation behaves like it’s tossing our planet. I filled the space with black ink and then outlined the hands, sling and Earth with a white jellyroll pen.

Day 20: “Tread”

I absolutely loved doing this piece! The prompt made me think of a treadmill but I didn’t want to draw that —not political enough. Instead I started to envision humans walking endlessly and numbingly. The idea of them following each other but their attention riveted on their smartphones came, and the one of using cogs followed. I didn’t know what to picture for what the cogs powered though, so left it to everyone’s imagination. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen, and a Posca white pen for the stars.

Inktober 2019 Days 11-15

15 Oct

Day 11: “Snow”

I experimented for the first time with negative space. I liked it! I used a black 0.05 mm Uni Pin pen.

Day 12: “Dragon”

What can I say? I do take every opportunity to draw dragons! Especially the Chinese and Japanese kind from woodblock prints. Other than the grey ink that bled into the paper without blending with the previous layer, and the strange green hue where the grey ink of my Kuretake brush pen and the black ink of my Pentel Brushpen met, I really like how it turned out.

Day 13: “Ash’

I really enjoyed doing this one! I chose to depict a scene from Pompei in AD 79 after volcano ash trapped the bodies of people trying to escape their horrific death. I used a grey ink brush pen and a water brush in places to get blended lighter tones, then outlined using a black 0.05 mm Uni Pin pen.

Day 14: “Overgrown

Black 0.05 mm Uni Pin pen and Slim frixion pen in red for this messy attempt at rendering how the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco would look like a bit after the apocalypse.

Day 15: “Legend

“The way of the warrior is the brave acceptance of death.” — Miyamoto Musashi, The Earth Book, 1644. I draw the detail of a samurai, showing two swords. Musashi was famous for the way of the two swords. I used a grey ink brush pen from Kuretake, a black ink Pentel Brushpen.
