inktober: week 1

October 5, 2015 by Sharon | 0 comments

 

I don’t really think much about the fact that I’m an artist. It’s just something I have always done and have gotten pretty good at over the years. However, like any skill, the only way you can get better is to practice. Unlike many other physical activities, art is something that you can start at practically any age and continue to improve and evolve in your abilities. It’s always important to challenge myself and try new techniques.

The introduction of Periscope was a way for me to have a live window into the creation process of my favorite artists. I never thought I would really have a use for Copic markers, but after watching other artists use them, I found I have a use for them after all.

Last year I discovred the Inktober Project. I t was a great way to challenge myself to use ink more. This year, I’m more determined to complete all the drawings. Drawing has come easier since I’ve been doing it more consistently (go figure), so I’m really excited to see what I can produce. I’ve branched out to using a brush to ink my pieces, and I bought a set of Faber-Castell PITT Artists Pens (Manga Black), which I have yet to use.

day 02 & 03 | gaby teller + illya kurkakin (smol + tol) | the man from u.n.c.l.e.

All drawings were done on Strathmore 300 Series Bristol paper with Winsor & Newton Cotman 00 round brush and Higgins Ink in Black Magic.

I’m not too happy with Jemma’s likeness. I can’t get her nose quite right. Maybe this week I will switch it up with the PITT Pens. But I like to leave myself open to what the Muse wants
