IpadArtChallenge Day 13

Challenges, Digital

In 2020 I realised I am way more of a perfectionist than I thought I was. The solution to that is to churn out as many happy digital birds as possible.

Day 8: A Self-Assured Shoebill Stork.

I’m posting them over on my Instagram first (@artjmtinsta) so you can follow along there.

Inktober 2019 – Day 13: Ash

inktober, pen

Ok, this is not my best.

I wasn’t sure what to do for this prompt word, and my partner suggested a Phoenix.

When I looked at reference pictures, they were all very stylised, so I decided to look at reference pictures of eagles.

Let’s be honest, it’s not a good drawing, but I had fun! Once I stopped caring so much about the outcome it became easier to just have a go and layer different colours.

So, lets pretend this Phoenix hasn’t so much ‘risen from the ashes’ but rather was rudely awaken and super groggy.

Inktober 2018 – Day Thirteen: Guarded


Me: “What shall I draw?”

10 year old: “A flying pig, being ridden by a tad pole, with a frog, and it’s flying pig friends.”

Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of this masterpiece (I let her keep it) however it did inspire me to drawer a pug today. It’s only noe occurring toe that it might be somewhat insulting.

I’m only the way to London, so he’s a London guard. I wanted him to look like he’s seen some things in his life.

It’s rushed partly because I’m on the train and it’s shaky (my first train inktober drawing! first of many I’m sure) and partly because the train got busy at Chelmsford and I started feeling embarrassed. We’ve all got room to grow.
