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🙂
