I can’t draw.
Correction. Everyone can draw. Everyone can write. Everyone can dance. Everyone can paint. Ability? That’s a different story. Mine is such that I wouldn’t want to draw in the public square and scare the horses. And yet I find myself intrigued by Inktober.
1) Make a drawing in ink
2) Post it
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
I have chosen the 5k option.
“Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week.” Rules
This meshes well with my graphic posts on Sunday. For tools, I have gone with hand-drawn, black ink, and brush pen, although I may switch to technical pen if I do any lettering.
“That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.” Rules
Well, I don’t know about beautiful. Mainly I have proven that
a) I was not wrong about my artistic ability.
b) The list is vast of things I am willing to do for a blog post.
I tried to do a head-on sketch of Milton from life. When I added the round nostrils at the end of this long face, the result was disconcertingly genitalic. We’ll skip those.
What are you doing for October?
Paper: Canson Mix Media, spiral bound, 98 lb
Pen: not sure, possibly Prismacolor brush tip
Digitization: cell phone camera
Post-production: resized, border, & watermark in GIMP
Retouching: None. (B/c I don’t know how.)
A materials list appears to be an art thing.
Thank you for reading,
