Inktober Day 11 – Sour

Didn’t have much time for drawing. So this is what I came up with…

Raccoon in a pile of lemons. Will he bite or wont he?

Inktober Day 9 – Pressure II

I did a second drawing as I was in the mood…

Tea time didn’t quite go as planed. Hope dinner will be better…

Inktober Day 5 – Raven #2

Tried something completely different as well for the raven prompt. Although I don’t feel like drawing this character is really me. I really prefer drawing animals and I feel like I haven’t found my style yet when it comes to drawing people appropriate for children’s books. I will keep on practicing though.

I am still on track with my Inktober drawings, I just haven’t managed to take photos and upload them yet. They will follow shortly.

Who else is doing Inktober here?

Inktober Day 3 – Vessel

I´m experimenting with adding a bit of colourful highlights to my ink drawings. What do you think?

I have also decided to spend Inktober to explore new and old characters.

Inktober Day 1 – Crystal

Inktober is here again!

I think ink is still my favourite medium to draw with. I haven’t picked any particular topic to draw this year but I will just follow the official Inktober prompt list and see what comes out of it. I think I will experiment creating different characters.

Let this owl look into her crystal ball to tell you what happens next.

Happy October 1st!

It’s the beginning of Inktober! I haven’t started with the Inktober sketch just yet but will get to it soon.

Meanwhile I tried to draw something a bit different, inspired by a Draw this in your style challenge on Instagram . I haven’t really been doing people illustrations for children’s books, but I think I am quite happy with my first attempt.

What do you think?

Continuation of introducing the Adventures of the Little Fly.

I very much enjoyed drawing this snow covered garden scene.

During the beginning of the long winter nights here in Iceland, many people cover their trees with winter lights. It makes the dark nights appear more bright.

We had the first snowflakes flying around here yesterday. Way too early if you ask me.
