Day 5 – Chicken
Chicken, I mean, chicken?!? Really? the best I could come up with were some cute, cuddly, doodle chooks, along with some eggs and feathers to decorate the hand-lettered ‘chicken’.
Oh, and I made it another dangle design. (A Dangle A Day is available for preorders).
I used Sakura Pigma Micron and Uniball Unipin pens to draw the design. I drew everything directly in ink, though I did add some pencil guidelines to make sure the letters were on the level and roughly the same height.
To add colour I used Copic markers. I added some highlights of gold using a Sakura Metallic Gelly Roll. Oh, and I added some white highlights using a Sakura Souffle pen.
It’s worked out ok…
Day 6 – Drooling
Drooling, dribbling just said ‘monsters’ to me, and as the only monsters I draw are cutesy ones this is what I came up with. Some of the monsters are dribbling/drooling, but the page most definitely is drooling from the top.
I started by colouring the paper with Distress Inks and an ink blending tool. I wanted it to look grungy and old.
Next, I started by drawing the border, then the drooling pattern at the top of the page, and added stippling for shadow.
After that, I started drawing from the bottom up, starting with some weird alien plants.
Sakura Pigma Micron and Uniball Unipin pens were used for the drawing.
After the outlines were drawn, I used the same pens to add shadows and patterns to the design. I followed this up with a white Uniball Signo pen to add the white highlights.
All caught up
These two mean I’ve caught up with the Inktober 2018 challenge! They have taken me a few hours of my Saturday morning to do, but it’s been a pleasurable time for sure.
