IpadArtChallenge Day 3, 4 and 5

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 3. Triumphant Toucan

Day 4. Happy Hummingbird

Day 5. Bright Blue Tit

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

Inktober 2019 – Day 5: Build

I really struggled with Inktober today. I’ve never had artist block quite so bad before. At first I tried drawing a pile of Lego, then a treehouse, and finally settled on a little nest.

I think drawing small and sticking to limited materials really helped.

Maybe I’ll try to invest a bit more time in tomorrow’s piece to feel more proud. I suppose the important thing is just that there’s something on the paper.

Inktober 2017: Day 5: Long

I interpreted “long” as “tall” and used a reference photo to fit my nature theme.

I wanted to limit myself to just the time I had on the train, so didn’t add too much detail. I definitely prefer these entries when I have longer to spend on them!

Originally I tried using the copic markers on the other side of the page so that it would bleed through. It didn’t really work, but there is a faint lilac colour in the leaves that I added for a little extra detail.
