I didn’t miss these days! I posted them on Twitter and my IG but didn’t post them on the blog, so this is me catching the blog up. =)
Ooof it was close, but I was so busy with new paintings and then WoW raid tonight that during break I squeezed in a husky cat drawing. Sorry for the quality, I didn’t have time to scan it.
Ha! It was close, I had some ideas of you know…cats “building things” like… sandcastles in the cat box, but then the only thing I know from some movie is a song about building snowmen. That’s when it hit me. “Do you want to build a pumpkinman!?” Ya!
Day 2 I’ve learned my Micron pens don’t really live that long after using them on acrylic paintings, so I should probably buy more for Inktober (and for…paintings.) I’m going to make it a habit to start every morning of October with a little drawing for this challenge. I decided that cats are my thing, so I should probably have a cat in every drawing. That said, thinking of something for “mindless” was hard until I was like, “Wait, cats aren’t actually testing gravity by knocking stuff off of things, that’s pretty mindless…”
Every year I’ve seen the Inktober thing happening, but I’ve never managed to participate. I thought I’d start this year. I’m not really a “drawing” artist. I have an idea, I draw a rough draft and then paint. If you looked at a drawing vs the actual painting you’d probably be like “wut?” Yeah. So anyway, this is my first Inktober post. I’m using a list I saw on Twitter by Jake Palmer. Sure I could have gone with another that had “black cat” as the first, but “ring” immediately reminded me of Sadako from Ringu so I had to go with that. =)
