Inktober 2021 Day 6: SPIRIT

Step Daughter didn’t want to draw anything scary looking so she decided that Spirits from Spirited Away had to be the best option. She’s actually doing a few “Asian” style things this month. Her fan is one of the folding fans her Great Uncle brought her from Thailand. She wanted to draw No Face andContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 6: SPIRIT”

Inktober 2021 Day 5: RAVEN

I banned the use of color pencils and markers for today’s drawing. I was hoping my step daughter would be able to focus more on the drawing than coloring. Especially since Raven’s don’t have a lot of wild colors besides maybe a dark blue tint to their feathers. She wasn’t satisfied with one so IContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 5: RAVEN”

Inktober 2021 Day 4: KNOT

I had such a hard time with this one. It’s so simple, but it took so much time to brain my way through it. Urgh. I feel like I’ll need to go back through later and color some of these pieces. Or ink them. I know it’s just supposed to be a simple drawing promptContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 4: KNOT”

Inktober 2021 Day 3: VESSEL

VESSEL – noun a ship or large boat. a hollow container, especially one used to hold liquid, such as a bowl or cask. We decided to do a ship since my step daughter thought a bowl would be boring. Part of me was interesting in doing a variation different from this, which I might tryContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 3: VESSEL”

Inktober 2021 Day 2: SUIT

I was honestly stumped on this one. I thought about doing something creative, but I didn’t have that much wind in my sails today. I just did a suit jacket. I was supervising my step daughter a bunch for this day of drawing. Suits aren’t something she’s had to see that often in her lifeContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 2: SUIT”

Inktober 2021 Day 1: CRYSTAL

Since my step daughter isn’t here for every day of the month of October, I started working on Inktober with her in September. Also, one drawing a day can be rough for a 9-year-old so we are trying to space the project out a bit for her. The first drawing was a bit rough onContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 1: CRYSTAL”

Inktober

What exactly is Inktober? (FAQ) I mentioned that I was going to do this way, WAY back in August. I’m even writing up this post during that time period. Okay. So I’ve had plenty of time to amend this post since I first started writing it in August. I really just wanted to keep myselfContinue reading “Inktober”

Prelude to Inktober

Tomorrow’s post is about preparing for Inktober, but I thought I’d do another post about past Inktobers. I’ve considered doing it in the past and I’ve started it a few times, but I’ve never really stuck to it since my drawing is always so sporadic. It’s one of the things that helps me realize artContinue reading “Prelude to Inktober”

Tiny Chaos

So I’ve shared pictures of the chocolate shoppe before. I worked a little on that today. Put the sign and it’s hanger up on the building. Glued some of the treats into the case and fastened the cookies into their boxes. I really hate the wire chair and table that came with this set. TheyContinue reading “Tiny Chaos”

Sunday Best

I wish I was feeling good. I’m going to try and take a walk today. That summer heat really just has been kicking my butt. Felt horrible yesterday. Been combating blood sugar problems and then the heat during karate class really hit me hard. Got really dizzy and tired. I really love this song andContinue reading “Sunday Best”
