Black cats, Ghosts, Aliens… Mab’s Drawlloween Club came to an end this year. The last week was the hardest (time-wise) so I combined some of the last ideas into single concepts. Managed to finish a total of 30 promts (missed the Custom Creature). My personal challenge was experimenting more with my tools and ideas. The most important thing was creating the habit of thinking conceptually and sketching daily.
More daily illustrations based on #mabsdrawlloween prompts! Definitely, the best challenge of the year.
October is usually my busiest month but I was looking forward to experiment on a daily basis. This year, I decided to give @mabgraves‘ Drawlloween prompts a go! The amazing amount of work I stumbled across #mabsdrawlloweenclub is outstanding! I love waking up to new art, it takes me back to art school. These are my sketches and illustrations from Day 1 to Day 13.
This is a super quick entry to update/talk about several new supplies I got recently. I was going to post something else (think video) but my laptop officially died this past Saturday.
Say hello to my 2nd Timelapse!
Watch me cut out the whole background with an x-acto knife. A keen and vulgar solution that delivered a new dimension.
Here are few entries from my sketchbook.
Above is a little study I did inspired by dear Anya. I included jellyfish ghosts (or something).
All of these were done in old watercolour scrap papers I found in my room. I was lucky enough to have saved them 10 years ago. As an update in art tools: I finally bought some Arches paper from Amazon as well as a watercolour paper sketchbook (and a few other supplies). The package arrived last Friday!
Here’s a new piece and my first time lapse video (requested by V Yari Sama on my facebook page, thanks!). I experimented with a new (to me) thing and went with the flow mixing ink into the watercolours.
It’s been like forever since I did my last Sketchbook log. This is a small warm up experiment I did on my redbubble sketchbook with watercolours, a ballpoint pen, a pencil colour, jasmine tea and white acrylic paint.
I’m working on an art project that involves dreadlocks and you could be a part of it. Keep on reading for more details.
