Inktober 2021 Day 10: PICK

103 days straight of posting to the blog so far! Not quite to the 1/3rd mark of a year, but I’m thrilled. It’s been so hard keeping up with posts. Especially right now with the drawing stuff for Inktober. My step daughter is away this week for her Fall Break. I’ll have to look atContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 10: PICK”

Inktober 2021 Day 9: PRESSURE

I took a very artistic approach for my version of pressure. I’m not sure if I’m going to let my step daughter see this one. I don’t want to confuse her too much. I worked on this one one of the days she wasn’t around. Urgh, I do need to start putting something in betweenContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 9: PRESSURE”

Inktober 2021 Day 8: WATCH

Hickory Dickory Dock… the Whooter drew a watch. I definitely pressed down too hard on that fan drawing because you can STILL see lines on this page. I’m struggling to draw right now. I really hope that the next few days of doodles will be easier. I guess this is why they call it aContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 8: WATCH”

Inktober 2021 Day 7: FAN

My step daughter has fallen behind with her drawings. So I’m going to go ahead and keep posting mine. Hopefully she will catch back up with me and I’ll be able to add her sketches to these post once they are done. Or I’ll do a post near the end of the month with allContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 7: FAN”

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”
