I bought some red and yellow ink recently... I am pretty excited to try some new stuff with them.
When I was younger I remember always wishing that I could be a fish and breathe under water.... I also remember being sad when I thought about not being able to see my friends and family on land. So here is the solution to my day dream: a fish that can walk on its flippers. Don't ask about its respiratory system because I didn't get that far with my thoughts... haha.
p.s. thank you everyone for being so supportive (as always)... It means the world to me!
My roommate wanted me to draw a portrait of her, so I attempted to do so. I am pretty happy with the result, although I wish I could have kept the blue ink more controlled. Unfortunately, it spreads everywhere. But the important part is that I enjoyed doing this piece. :)
First off, hello! Hope every single on of your days is going so spectacularly you don't know what to do with yourselves! So I didn't post yesterday's Inktober... so here it is!
It's the tooth fairy. Or at least the tooth fairy that exists in my brain. I drew this in one of my classes and didn't really have any reference to draw from... so I used my geology teacher as a model of sorts. It's super hard to draw accurate figures without reference! But I'm secretly pretty proud of the way it turned out.
...and! Here is the doodle for today :D It's what my face looked like in a mirror when I was exhausted. I really love these markers. They make drawing so much more fun than it already is!
Here is Alex's interpretation of me. Offensive, right?? Just kidding, I look like a babe. But wait, he knows how to draw in real life. So check out his stuff here ----> CLICK ME!
I got some new markers! I've been messing around with them for the past 3 hours. My friend Dallin Orr recommended them... click his name if you want to see some wicked awesome artwork. I mean it... he rocks.
Hey you cool people out in internet land! I didn't post yesterday, which is kind of lame. But good news! I've got 2 doodles for you to check out today! Here is day #19 of Inktober... a little blue girl in blue attire. I recently read Blankets by Craig Thompson again. If you haven't heard of that graphic novel, I highly suggest you check it out. It is a beautifully illustrated book and the storyline is awesome. Anyways! I doodled this after obsessing over his art... go give it a peek!
...and here is my doodle for day #20 of Inktober. It's whatever your little heart wants it to be... but it looks like a strange cat of sorts. Just go with it.
You can just tell that this dude loves what he does... and his imagination is out of control (in the best kind of way). One of the neatest things about his work is how he works on such a small scale. He was explaining to us how he likes to prep small copper plates and paint on them. For those of you who dont know, copper isnt easy to paint on.. so preparing the surface is a major part of his work. He talked about how the texture of the surface he is working on will help decide what he paints on it. It was inspiring to listen to someone so respectable and fantastic talk about their artwork.
Anyways, after taking in all of that information, I felt like I had to draw something with his style in mind!
I am sorry because I didn't draw a picture yesterday. You know those days where you just want to retire as a human being for a bit? Well, that was yesterday... and I didn't want to do anything responsible. Just sit in bed and eat ice cream and/or french fries. (you know the kind of day im talking about.) Any-who! Here is me apologizing as a cartoon for skipping day #16 of Inktober...
... and here is day #17 of Inktober! Guess what?? Its my best buddy's birthday today... so go send some love vibes her way!(is that weird to say?) She blogs in this general vicinity if you are interested!
The pup above was inspired by my hunger in my geology class. Sometimes it feels as though I will be stuck in class forever until i starve to death. It is so hard not to doodle in my non-art classes haha. I also attempted a little smidgen of perspective on that table...its somewhat successful!
Day number 15 of Inktober... I am halfway there! (which is crazy... does anyone else feel like October is flying by??) So here is my doodle for the day: its a girl with the best kind of ice cream cone. I've always had a soft spot for sky-scraping ice cream... it just looks the cutest.
Today I was just scribbling with some sepia pens and this happened... It's just a babe with huge hair. I've noticed that I have a weird love affair with brown... I like using it more than black most of the time :)
Edward Scissorhands is the best. I love Winona Ryders face so much in it... her voice just kind of rubs me the wrong way. Regardless, here is a picture of her I drew for day #9 of Inktober. Drawing this made me realize that her and Emma Watson kind of look similar... no?
Hey friends! Happy October 7th! I can't seem to get my mind off of sushi.. I'm madly in love with it. BUT! Did you know that sushi can fall in love with ITSELF? I didn't either. So i drew a tiny picture to show you how it all works.
Words cannot express how excited I am for fall break... phew!
Happy INKTOBER, friends! I know... I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon. But I figured it's okay if I only missed 2 days.
So for those of you who have no idea what in the world Inktober is... let me explain! This fantastic human named Jake Parker came up with the idea of drawing a pen/ink drawing each day for the month of October. When I heard about it, I couldn't pass it up! Ink is my favorite medium, after all.
So, here is day 3 of Inktober! It's a deer. Or a Bambi.... whatever. I'm planning on making progressively creepier images as October rolls along (it's only fitting with it being the month of Halloween and all).
I do feel kind of bad that I skipped the first 2 days, though. So I decided to add a little ink doodle I did about a week ago. It makes me feel better. But just a little.
Poor guy.. Since Froggy is the youngest of 20 sisters, he always gets their Halloween costume hand-me-downs. Tough life.
