As I’ve said in the previous two blogs, ink is not my forte. Tempted as I was to just go with digital ink this year, I wanted to push myself a bit and see if I could produce anything I was happy with in real ink for Inktober. These were two I was particularly pleased with.
“Ring” is one that I think looks unfinished but like it might be worth finishing digitally. It looks like it has the potential to be something quite beautiful with some more work. I’d especially like to work a lot more on the girl’s eyes. I am pleased with it for what it is though, especially the falcon’s face and the patterns. There is something very soothing about making the same marks over and over.
“Frail” really made me smile, because I honestly expected to screw it up and instead it turned out pretty much as I had in mind. So cute! Look at that grumpy little face! Awww. Again though, I would be very tempted to detail it up digitally. What can I say? Digital art satisfies me in a way that traditional art just doesn’t. Maybe because mistakes aren’t the end of the world.
I’ve tended to post only my best work to this blog. Would you like to see more sketches, rough work and work in progress from me? Do you enjoy showing your sketches on your blog? Let me know in the comments and post me a link so I can see your work.
