Sepia Goldfish, 10.29.15

My apologies for being away for the past week!  I’ve been really busy with music – I have a show this coming Friday & getting ready for it has taken up all my time.  Thing should go back to normal this weekend.

However, I did have an hour at lunch to try & finish the goldfish drawing before Inktober ends!  Honestly, when I first started adding details to this, I wasn’t too happy, but now that it’s finished, I think it turned out pretty well – not sure I like it as much as the rhino or leopard, though.

Weekend inky drawings: Baby Rhino, Goldfish, Pluto & a Hand

Baby Rhinoceros in Ink, 10.18.15

Baby Rhinoceros in Ink, 10.18.15

This was a productive drawing weekend for me!  Well, at least Friday & Sunday were – Saturday not so much, but I was busy costume shopping.

On Sunday, I finished up my rhinoceros drawing (you can compare with the WIP version here).  It’s a baby rhino, by the way, if his horn looks unusually small.  I was pretty pleased with the WIP as I left it, but I wanted to try adding more shading.  Of course, I was scared of ruining it, but I at least had that scan saved if I felt bad about the finished drawing.  Over all, though, while I didn’t add a ton more detail, I think this one came out pretty well.  I probably could have added more?  I don’t know.

Ink Rhinoceros (WIP)

Rhinoceros in Ink WIP, 10.15.15

Hey guys, guess what!  I’ve got another work in progress for you since I didn’t have a lot of time last night (kind of disappointing for me because I was really enjoying this one, like the leopard the other night).

So, here we have another Inktober drawing that I’m working on, this time a rhinoceros!  I’m trying a similar approach to the leopard (using that Micron brush pen), but slightly different in that I’m trying to do a bit more shading, & am using fineliner for some of the details & shading.  Rhinos have a lot of wrinkles.  I didn’t think the brush pen was going to work for those wrinkles.

Leopard in ink(tober)

Leopard in ink, 10.15.15

Many of you have been doing awesome ink drawings for Inktober, which I just heard about maybe 2 days ago.  So although I’m kind of late to it, last night I decided to do my own ink drawing.  What possessed me to try drawing a leopard, I have no idea.  It’s a really beautiful animal, don’t get me wrong, but I’m surprised I felt up to drawing all the spots.
