Inktober 2020 days 21-25

Day 21: “Sleep”

This is Ilya, born a day or two prior, sleeping next to Yves. My brother was hanging out with me when I drew this. He looked at the reference photo and doubted I could draw this. I wasn’t sure either because I’m not very good at drawing people but I said that I’d try a few more minutes before giving up. But I did, and when I was done he said “what, already?!” :) Done with my black 0.05 mm Graphik line maker from Derwent, which has enough ink in it still.

Day 22: “Chef”

I love this one! ❤️ I had a few ideas of what I wanted to draw: I remembered taking a few photographs of cooks in Japan but none of them were lending themselves to the medium. I searched for images of Italian chefs one would find on vintage advertisements and this one really appealed to me! I used mainly the grey ink brush pen by Kuretake and black ink Pentel Brushpen for shading.

Day 23: “Rip”

Black 0.05 mm Graphik line maker from Derwent and grey ink brush pen by Kuretake.

Day 24: “Dig”

A twist on dino digging! I wanted to draw a cartoon-sized t-rex holding a small shovel and digging a hole. I had fun imagining it excavating human bones. It looks more like a turkey with a t-Rex front body, but I still like it. Black 0.05 mm Graphik line maker from Derwent and shading with the Kuretake light grey ink Brush Writer.

Day 25: “Buddy”

I’m pretty sure every dog owner who does Inktober drew their buddy. I used as reference the photo I took of Gizmo working on the bone I gave him for his 7th birthday last month. Again, I used a black 0.05 mm Graphik line maker from Derwent and light grey ink Brush Writer from Kuretake.
