Inktober 2017 – Day 29: United

inktober, pen

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.
