#Inktober Challenge

October 3, 2017

I've been following artists that do #Inktober for a few years, and finally decided to participate. 

My goal is to try new inking techniques, get loose and enjoy the process. I post all of my images on social media-Twitter: @dorothia & Instagram with the hashtag #inktober. Here are the first few days. 


Day 1- Swift








I used Pentel Japanese brush, Zig Pigment Pen and red Inktense pencils on gessoed paper.










Day 2- Divide


For this sketch I used the Zig pigment pen, Japanese Brush, Carbon wash with brush on gessoed paper.














Day 3 - Poison 


I used sepia ink for the outlines and inktense pencils for color. The white highlights were added with a gel pen. I wanted to try a more graphic style for this one. After I posted it, I went back and added a bit more contrast with black brush lines.
