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.
