Inktober Day (10 Total): 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Plan
I am going to use this Daiso notebook for Inktober. This isn’t a sketchbook or anything. It’s just what I have and it is lightweight. It says it has 50 sheets, so it should hopefully be enough for Inktober 2017.
I finished my first Inktober drawing.
The prompt is from mm-24707 on Tumblr.
I finished this drawing before 12 AM. :’D I didn’t think I would make it on time. However, the time it took me to post this on social media made it late. ;;; Oh well.
I used pencil to draw first. Then, I traced with a pen. I liked the pencil version more because it is more natural. The pen is more awkward because I am not used to the line pressure when drawing. The pen makes it harder to control my already minimal pressure control. Also, the pencil allowed me to erase to fix lines. QQ
And… I don’t know how to shade with a pen. ;;; It is also hard to make different size lines with this pen… I mean I could, but I failed more times than I succeed. I messed up one of the eyes because of this pen. ;;;
BUT drawing with this pen is fun, so I will still use this for future drawings. :<
Oh right… I actually finished the eyes last this time. I used to finish the eyes first to get a feel of the character, so I could decide on the clothes.
Anyways, when I got around to drawing her eyes, I panicked. I haven’t drawn those eyes in ages, so they looked weird to me.
Now I am getting used to the eyes, so I am starting to notice other flaws. @_@
Oh well… I am quite glad the first prompt is MC. I had practice last month on drawing her. That’s why I drew her faster than I thought.
Now that the easier prompt is done… Oh boy… I don’t even know where to start on explaining how much of a steep learning curve it is for the rest of the prompts… ;;; I might go the easy route on most/all days… ;;; I still want to keep drawing as a fun activity instead of a chore.
