Conclusion of Inktober2017
October has concluded and it kicked my butt.  I am working on a few oil paintings that I’d like to get done by the end of the year.  Taisa, however, went all in with it.  She got some amazing ideas out of it including but not limited to a full blown narrative!

In conclusion of this awesome art community event, it’s very important to use these community events as a learning experience.  We implore you guys out there to not use these things as a means of drawing just to say you’ve drawn but to use it to hone specific aspects of your work.  That’s my inspirational blerb for today.  Have a great week!

Fun with Ink and Color

I'm currently working on a series of illustrations chronicling the life of a royal family. Royal portrait

I'm using ink and color pencil on my old standby, Bristol paper. I've been playing around with the medium for the past two days and did some experimenting with toned paper.

I want to work on marrying the ink and color more, and using the tone of the paper is just an added bonus. This just goes to show the breakthroughs you can get when you don't rely on the same techniques all the time. I have a whole sketchbook to fill, the last page will be very interesting.
