InkTober early

I’m going to do my best to participate in InkTober this year. It’s difficult for me to fit drawings into my schedule, so forgive me if I fail to do all of them.

For those unfamiliar:

I’m starting a couple days ahead because of my schedule.

First one, FISH, I used the following photograph as my study. It is clipart available through a couple different sources. For my purpose, I did a simple screenshot. The original to me appears to have had some significant Photoshop work, but it still worked for me doing a small image.

The drawing progressed as follows, and the green and white ball point pen was my tool of choice. I really need to get better at photographing more stages of rendering. The drawing is on my small bundle of Strathmore cold press watercolor paper, I used the back side for less texture.

The final image is 3.75″ x 3.75″:

Considering I did this in just a few hours of drawing I’m happy with it. I do want to be a little more creative in the rest of InkTober, so we’ll see what that translates into.

May you have good creative moments. If you enjoy drawing may you have plenty of moments to do so. If not, may you find many other ways to express your creativity. May you have fun with your work.
