Inktober 2021 Day 12: STUCK

My step daughter mentioned trying to be Ghibli themed for the Inktober challenge but she hasn’t really been able to keep that going. I don’t blame her. It’s really difficult trying to fit some of these terms to a Studio Ghibli movie. This one really came to mind for me so I had to doContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 12: STUCK”

Inktober 2021 Day 11: SOUR

When life gives you lemons… draw them. I really honestly don’t have much brain right now so I’m sorry if I don’t have anything interesting to tell you. The drawing prompts are at least helpful in getting me motivated to do something. I’m trying so hard not to be a perfectionist and just posting whatContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 11: SOUR”

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 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”

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”
