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 – Wisp II

Experimented with masking fluid for the wisp. It worked rather well I have to say. What kind of spirits have you encountered in the forest?

Mr Fox does not seem scared. He is rather surprised about the apparition it seems. Or maybe he just plays it cool?

Do Not Wake a Sleeping Dragon

I bought some red ink as I wanted to try out something different. This is what the first experiment looks like.

The ink doesn´t cover as well as I would have expected. Lets see what I will use it for.

Inktober 2019 Day 20 – Tread

I couldn´t really think of anything for this prompt,  so I made the little fox cross a creek on his adventure to… the unknown.

Inktober 2019 Day 15 – Legend

The only legend I could think of was that of a unicorn. Also there is the saying, that if you can be a unicorn, be a unicorn.

Happy Monday!

Inktober 2019 Day 14 – Overgrown

I wanted to draw another dragon. This one went to take a nap in the forest. After a long slumber he woke up only to discover that he was surrounded by forest flora and fauna.

Day 12 – Blossoming #WorldWatercolorMonth

Flower-vase-hair. Inspiration was a post about ridiculous Instagram trends. This was apparently a thing at some point?

Anyway, flowers are blossoming. Here in Iceland the last lupins are still in bloom.

Window of Curious Items

On an evening stroll with a friend around the Plaka area in the centre of Athens, we passed by this shop window. It was the only thing illuminated on a dark street and had something weirdly fascinating about it, so that I had to take a picture.
