Here is the other side of the spread with the Monsters from yesterday. Screw the prompt. Monsters are more fun!
I follow Sketchbook Skool and they do weekly YouTube gatherings where you sketch along with Danny Gregory. I am not always able to attend but yesterday was Monsters for Halloween. I had to do that one! I wasn’t able to finish these yesterday because I was working on a project but I finished them today on a Zoom happy hour.
This page is Dracula and the Bride of Frankenstein. Good oldies!
The background ink is a sample of Sailor Ink Studio 123. All those background colors came from that ink.
The sketchbook is homemade with Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper
I spent the entire day on a project so I am barely getting this one done. My mom always loved to dress as a witch on Halloween so I made her witch shoes.
My Inktober sketchbook is finally full. I started with the Little Witch Series back in 2018 and used that sketchbook only for the Little Witch drawings. Now that it’s full, I have moved over to my Innovative Journaling Halloween Journal, which is appropriate. This journal is perfect for my Little Witch series and yes, those are skulls dangling from it. It freaking rocks and it’s refillable. It comes with Arches text wove paper which I’ll report back on how it performs. Today’s sketch with the Arteza brush pens scumbled a bit but I used that to my advantage. I tried the dragon floating on his back, though I did think about doing a side view. I used my dog for positioning the feet.😂
Here is day 26….someone found out how much fun the pumpkin patch is in the evening…
There’s nothing like a moonlit evening by the water, hanging with a friend, just enjoying the moment.
I used the Drawlloween prompt today
This is the Little Witch’s older brother….
He likes bright orange kitties.
Ran outta time today so I whipped this one up really quick.
Ok, I told the dragonet this morning that he had to wear armor today. The conversation did not go well…
“D – “don’t want to wear armor! It’s too heavy and hot!!
Me – “ Oh for heavens sake, it’s only for about 30 minutes.”
D – “why do I have to wear ARMOR? Why can’t the Little Witch wear it? Who’s idea was this, anyway?
Me – “Jake Parker’s. The guy who invented Inktober. And the Little Witch is at work.”
D – “I wanna flame him!”
Me – “That wouldn’t be nice. Put the armor on and I promise I’ll sketch you quickly!”
D – “30 Minutes! That’s it! Then I’m going to the beach!”
Me – “ok ok! Shush! Let me get this done!”
30 minutes later….
D – “30 minutes are up.”
Me – (stalling) “not yet.”
D – “I was watching the clock! 35 minutes already!” I’m hot!
Me – “Almost done!”
D – “Now?”
Me – “I saw the big lizards out front. You can have them if you give me 2 more minutes!”
D – “(resigned) “ok.”
I finished the sketch. I didn’t need the dragonet for the rest.
He trots out the door toward the big palm trees out front.
Me – (calling after him) “There’s two really big rainbow lizards. Try to not to scorch the palm tree. And don’t eat the anoles!”
D – (from outside) “Uh oh! I ate a little brown one.”
Me – ( sighing) “Ok but don’t eat anymore!”
I hear a screeching ruckus…
Me – “ What was that?!”
D – (while eating) “ I accidentally ate one of those big mouth ( munch) blue birds.”
Me – (head smack, sighing again) “a Blue Jay? Don’t eat any more!“
He never went to the beach. He’s laying out by the pool sleeping in the sun. He ate two Blue Jays.
