Today’s throwback is to the mechanical chicken from the Clangers.

This week’s throwback is from Inktober 2017. The prompt was “shattered” and I still think this is a pretty accurate representation.

Inktober 2017 – Day 31: Mask

Inktober is complete!

Since I’ve (loosely) completed a nature themed inktober, I thought for “mask” we’d go with a green man vibe. It’d be fun to redo this with lots of detail including flowers, moths, and feathers. Maybe I’ll paint my own seasonal green man masks one day.

I’ve really enjoyed inktober and seeing everyone’s sketches. It’s motivated me to sketch and paint and helped me see where the time in the day is available for me to create. I’m gonna really try to keep the momentum and continue to produce more and more work. 

Happy Halloween everyone!

Inktober 2017 – Day 30: Found

Slightly rushed one this morning but I really wanted to get it up and posted because I’ll be home late. 

Based on real-life events of what happens when we can’t find something in our house. Always worth checking the garden to see if Molly had stolen it and put it in one of her holes. 

I can’t beleive Inktober is almost over. I haven’t found it as difficult as I thought I would, it’s definitely inspired me to paint and create more. The more inspired I feel though, the less time I want to spend on my Inktober drawings. I’ve got lots of other content to share on here though which is great! When I feel like I have something to show it definitely keeps me motivated to work more. 

Anyway, here’s some photos from the trian.

Inktober 2017 – Day 29: United

I broke my nature themed Inktober today. Everything I could think of that was nature related to the prompt “united” was something I was too familiar with, and I wanted a challenge.

Last weekend (or the week before?) I got a post card book of Degas paintings, including Combing the Hair (1892). 

I loved the movement in it, and thought that trying to get the proportions right with just pen would be good practise. You can see where I’ve tried to change things with the hands, but I’m happy with how it came out.
