Recount of my work for this year.
Inktober 2019 is over. Yep, that’s it.
For me, it ended a few weeks ago but it didn’t feel like it till now.
Everything seems to have slowed down, you feel lazy and tired…
Well, I’m gonna keep it brief on this post and just show you my recount for this years’ Inktober.
I got 19 pieces out of 31 and it felt like more than enough with my energy this year.
Even though I didn’t finish it I still wanted to do this recount and also, I recorded an Inktober 2019 sketchbook tour over on my YouTube channel.
I’ll leave it here, in case you’ll rather watch it. If not, you can scroll down and see the pieces.
MY WORK FOR INKTOBER 2019
Here we go, my ink pieces for this year.
After this day I realised I had to avoid liquid media on this paper. I added little dabs of colour here and there but it was really controlled and I had to be extremely careful.
My first attempt at drawing a full piece with a ballpoint pen. Not too bad of a first experience.
Aaand another attempt at a ballpoint pen drawing. I don’t like this one as much though… – came to like it after a while tho
There’s always a bit of fan art on my Inktobers, I can’t help it!
This next one is a redraw from an old piece. If you want to see a side by side comparison click on the image.
I absolutely had to add something from Studio Ghibli. I always do!
I took a little 2-day break here.
This weird sisters drawing was one of my favourites for this Inktober. I actually made pins adapting this design – that you can buy here – and wrote a detailed blog post about how to do your own enamel pins, step by step!
And the next one, a really important one to reflect my feelings during this month.
This last one was another redraw, again you can see it over on my Instagram if you click on the photo.
And that’s it! I cut it a little short there, as I already said on other posts but it was for the better.
I hope you liked it! Which one is your favourite/favourites?
WHAT’S COMING NEXT FOR ME?
Well, after this weird Inktober of 2019 I’m balancing two things.
Update: I will talk soon about my plans for this year – 2020 – that I hope will be a bit better than this last one. If you want to stay updated sign up for my mailing list!
And while you’re at it, you get a bunch of awesome freebies!
Another one would be keeping up with my Landscape sketching with watercolour and gouache on Schoolism that I had to leave behind this past month – read my full post on Schoolism and on this class here (& more after I finish it).
