Sketching on a tablet (with a display) isn't something I'm used to, but it's also gotten me sketching digitally more often (I guess having to wait for the computer to fire up was a bigger deterrent than I realized), which can only be good.
I liked the result of my last attempt, so I decided to try out a couple of ink attempts. I say 'attempts' because I didn't properly finish either. All I wanted to do was get a feel for the tools.

Here’s the original. I put a lot into making my lines look nice—varying weight and all that jazz. Her eyes are … Continue reading Re: “Improvement”

In my first year, I managed the full 31 days (though some entries were late, posted at 2am or I posted two entries the next day), and last year I only finished about 21 days (3 weeks), but … Continue reading Inktober 2017
