First off, I am honored to congratulate Toni K, the winner of the free spot in PYHAS – it was SO fun seeing all the different entries and I want to thank each and every one of you for stopping by the blog and taking the time to answer.
I’ll be making some more fun announcements as we head into the year end – can’t wait!
IN OTHER NEWS:
is anyone else still doing #inktober? I finally got my act together this year – and I’m going to be doing small botanicals in a small moleskine – keeping this something I can actually get to happen.
I loved including some of the new grey microns – they’re a watercolor painter’s dream in addition to just being plain amazingly useful. This is 3.5×5 or whatever the little size is. I don’t love their watercolor book for watercolor but it’s nice for pen and ink and washes.
Drawing these mushrooms was a little bit of a challenge for me – I realize how uncomfortable I can be with hatching, but I really do want to use this chance to improve my comfort levels with inking.
I’ve been using adobe fresco a bit for linework (it’s a lot like procreate, shamelessly so, really) and I don’t know. I guess I’m the ultimate old dog, nothing will ever feel as comfortable as the resistance that I get from physical paper.
I also used the pentel pigment brush pen – man I love those things!
Did you do any inktober ink stuff? would love to know below.
