Inktober Day 6…7…8… eh, who’s counting?

Hi Friends!  I totally skipped Inktober Friday and I did not go with the Inktober prompt yesterday, instead I am honoring 2 viewer requests: 1. Draw a Pumpkin and 2. Use Inktense pencils:

You can see my process in today’s video!

Supplies I used:

OK, now for my excuses reasons I did not have an inktober sketch Friday or today. Friday it took all I had to get the live show up and going and the kids were off school (4 day Columbus weekend) and today I did actually sketch but I wasn’t in my filming location (because that was strewed with various supplies for a card tutorial coming up this week) and honestly the sketch is not totally done but perhaps I will snap a pic of in the morning and post it to Instagram. Look at me, falling of the wagon and making excuses already LOL! The kids are off tomorrow too and we just bought paint to repaint the girls bedrooms so I am not holding out hope that I will get tomorrow’s Inktober done either but you never know. I’ll be painting something either way:) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Inktober Day 5: Long

Hi friends! Don’t worry, there will be a live show later today but I wanted to pop in quickly this morning and share my sketch for Inktober day 5 where the prompt was “Long”:

This was my most favorite Inktober sketch I have done so far. Watch the video to see how it came to life!

Today’s prompt was the word “long” so what’s more fun than a long rainbow braid? You can learn more about inktober here.

Supplies I used:

I am loving the daily #inktober2017 challenge. I am not sure if I will post an inktober video each day but I’ll at least post a sketch if not. See you later for the live show and til then happy crafting!

Inktober Day 4: Underwater

Hi friends! Today’s #inktober2017 prompt is “Underwater” so of course I drew a mermaid! You can learn more about inktober here. I was so excited when Jake Parker, the founder of Inktober said it was OK to do a pencil sketch before inking! So that is what I did!

I looked at a pose from the book Figure Poses for Fashion Illustrations (A wonderful book & CD of reference fashion poses by Sha Tahmasebi) You can find it here for $14.48  (I paid $24 at Barns and Noble sheesh!) It is great for working out a figure pose especially if you like the willowy fashion figures and dynamic poses with attitude! I recommend it!

Supplies I used:

OK, that’s the last post from me today! You are going to be totally sick of hearing from me with all of the Inktober sketches! I hope you are playing along, it is a lot of fun! Til next time happy crafting!

Inktober Day 1: Swift

Hi friends! Every year I am inspired by the artists posting for the Inktober challenge so this year I thought I would try myself! Basically you post an ink drawing ever day during the month. I think it is a great way to squeeze in some art practice ever day.

The “ink” portion of this project took less than 5 minutes but I wanted color so I ended up adding some watercolors. Still the project was only about 10 minutes in real-time. I think we can all fit in a few minutes a day right? Today’s prompt was “swift” so I decided to paint a swift creature swiftly. 🙂 You don’t have to use prompts but they are there if you want them on the Inktober site🙂
