Video: making of Inktober day 31 “crawl”

This is a leopard crawling up a tree. I drew this on the last day of Inktober to illustrate the prompt “crawl”.

I felt confident enough to forego any pencil sketch and drew directly with the Pentel black ink Brushpen, and it went all right! I then used the light grey ink Brush Writer from Kuretake for shadows.

Video: making of Inktober day 19 “Dizzy”

This is trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie which I drew on the day 19 of Inktober 2020 to illustrate the prompt “dizzy”.

I chose a very dark photo as reference, so I could leave only a few blank spots on the paper for the highlights and plaster the rest with my black ink Pentel Brushpen, which ran out of ink right near the end!
