Here’s day 2!
I’m not as pleased with this compared to day 1, but that’s what this challenge is all about improving and just moving forward regardless of anything.
This morning I was walking my puppy, and I saw a tree trunk with very clear contrast between where the light was hitting it and the shadows. Since I’m focusing on a nature theme this Inktober (based on the prompt words) I decided to interpret divided as the distinction between the light and the dark areas. (Also yes, I totally misjudged the ink bleeding when labelling the pages.)
See you tomorrow!
Here we are!
This was my first time using copic markers (well, any markers). I liked using them a lot! I’m not sure I really improved it by adding the black outline. Maybe next time I’ll try using the darker purple as the outline?
Initially I focused so much on the colour I forgot about form and actual mark making, but I’ll get there with practise.
Here’s the post I made where I outlined what I was going to try and achieve this Inktober. I used a reference picture because I wanted to focus on scale, using the materials and producing work quickly. I told myself I wouldn’t use pencil though, so every mark is permanent.
See you tomorrow for day two!
