Inktober 52 – Week 5: SQUASH

I’m not quite sure who is coming up with these prompts… they’ve been very odd.

#Inktober52 #Inktober52Squash

Part of me, after I had already started sketching … was like. OMG, I should do the Other Dad from Coraline. I watched that movie like 8 times in theaters when it first came out. Then when my stepdaughter was a toddler, she watched it on repeat. So it’s ingrained in my brain. Plus I’m a Neil Gaiman fan. But I wasn’t really in the mood to draw squash dad. Maybe later?

I used the simple idea of squash as a chance to practice drawing some simple stuff and then using the alcohol-based markers to color the drawings. I photocopied the original sketch so that I could color without the ink smearing the pencil. I was going to stop and not finish, but the perfectionist in me demanded that I get those last three squash!

Dizzy from the fumes, but totally was worth it and a ton of fun. I thought for a while there that I might walk away from art forever. I was depressed and unable to create. I still need to finish the Care Bear piece. And I don’t think I’ll probably ever do commissions. Art isn’t something I want to do for work. I enjoy creating, but my ADHD brain just won’t allow me to do something on command.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll probably share some more doodles tomorrow.
