Another week of #inktober is gone, and again I’m just delighted with the daily drawing exercise. I feel like I’m getting a lot of experience points in drawing children. I’ve also had more parents send me pictures of their children saying “Would you sketch mine?” I don’t think there’s a nicer compliment. Here are the drawings:
Day 8: This is one of my favorites, not just because of the result, but because of the process in drawing this boy. I loved his pose and expression in the reference photo, and it was an exciting challenge to capture that.
Day 9: I remember wishing I could take a nap, so this image really captured my wish for napping that day 🙂 I also have a soft spot for teddy bears.
Day 10: I was very grouchy on this day, and I had a LOT on my plate that day so this was drawn at breakfast on the back of my grocery list. I made faces while I drew. 😛
Day 11: I almost forgot to draw for inktober on day 11! I was so busy working on Warrior Cat that I drew this at the end of the day. I used 3 different photos of different girls to come up with this one. In the end she reminds me of a friend’s daughter, and I thought “I could’ve just looked at a photo of her!” 😀 Funny how our subconscious minds work!
Day 12: This one is another favorite of mine. Profiles are a challenge for me, so I was really pleased to make progress with this one. Plus the boys are relatives of mine, so I have a little bias when it comes to the warm fuzzies 🙂
Day 13: I loved this photo sent to me. His sippy cup was HUGE and his book is HUGE and he carried them around like a boss.
Day 14: Drawing this girl was a wonderful experience 🙂
