here's today's answer to Kimberley Woods challenge: black and white photos of my life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.
As promised, here are the 4 inktober drawings. The prompts are: Dirty (a pig's revenge for being called dirty, Fat (cat lovers understand), Graceful (LOVE steam punk fashion!!!) and Mysterious (I think I got the effect with using very little black too! Yeah!)
Sorry to repeat myself but to remind you, Inktober is an international challenge to help all artists work on their ink drawing skills and to have fun.
These drawings were created using Strathmore Tan Toned 300g paper, grey ink from Rotring (which I am really starting to love, as it is a paynes grey really) my fountain pen, Pentel aquash brush pens (which over time have proved to be quite crappy as the fibres are now splaying in all directions),no point or fine tip left, less than one year old and really not used a lot in that time.Pentel brush pen and unibal signo white gel pen.
These drawings were definitely a challenge but so fun to do, and I was so pleased with the effects. A few of the next ones are tougher to figure out illustrations for, quite the brain tease.
Well over half way now. So those of you who are tired of my postings of inktober, sorry to bother you, but on the happy side it is almost over.
Here is another installment of my having fun in Inktober. Remember that I am doing a steampunk fun themed set of ink drawings for this international challenge, that anyone can join. It is a good way to hone your drawing skills.
I did say earlier in other postings, that there were some prompts that I was stuck at and obviously the hardest one in this set was fierce. So I decided not to even try to disguise that this was the one.
These prompts are Fierce, Gigantic, Run, Screech, Shattered, and Teeming (those are metalic fish, I hope you can see that).
I created these drawings with my fountain pen full of grey Rotring drawing ink, Pentel black brush pen, white unibal signo gel pen, on Strathmore tan toned 300g paper
For me art is not always easy but a need that I have deep inside, a compulsion. Yes, I am ADD with, for added conflict, OCD and a few other issues thrown in for added interest and color. So art in the global sense soothes my contrary soul. It helps me negotiate life and recognize my true feelings and thoughts when my ego is masking the real thing.
When I am creating art it is a meditation for me to quiet my mind, I have a lot of energy and asking me to sit and empty my mind might be a bit of a big ask, I have put myself in those kind of classes and I can do it but it never feels satisfying but drawing immediately works so much better for me.
So have fun looking at them. I have 4 more coming this week. Later.
