I felt the relief of drawing something without fur on this one. Ready to move off bears and learn how to draw humans in ink. I’ve drawn over a hundred bears just this month with the Inktober challenge (lots of redraws!).
More ink wash practice. Trying to learn to use the ink strokes for texturing and the wash for the values.
The most famous bear in a coat, and constant topic of conversation by my youngest, Paddington.
This was my first try of ink wash. The overall effect I like. More experimenting with it as I go!
Only a week left to Inktober! What’s the artist equivalent of feeling the burn? Time for drawing is getting shorter too with Halloween and kids, but I’m determined to finish strong!
I received a challenge within the Inktober challege for this prompt. I was challenged to draw a bear skeleton to make sure I really knew how to draw a bear “from the inside out”. That led to this “homeschooler at the museum” idea.
My idea was a bear looking at a ghost costume in the mirror when a real ghost came up and surprised him.
Ok, so I completely forgot about the prompt for TREAD and had to rush to do a last minute doodle.
However, I more than made up for it with TREASURE. It’s a small tribute to N.C. Wyeth.
I drew 2 for this prompt. I just couldn’t decide if it was “misfit” as in clothes not fitting, or “misfit” as in the odd one in the group.
Now that I’m starting to understand both how to draw bears and the basics of crosshatching, I’m trying to loosen up a little bit to allow for more illustration-like drawings.
