Today’s prompt is “large nose.” This is Stuart Goss on The Sktchy App. I hope he doesn’t mind that I took artistic license with his features, lol.
I love working in Square sketchbooks. This one is actually a square Moleskine I found somewhere. I don’t remember where I purchased it. The paper isn’t the best for wet media so I only use the one side but that’s ok because I have been able to do some surprising projects in it, most of the using techniques from Carla Sonheim’s classes, which can be pretty messy.
This one is actually a Pam Garrison exercise but Joanne Sharpe does something similar. I went rogue by using a brush fountain pen.
Figment is another imaginary creature, so for you model horse folks that follow me, Figment isn’t meant to be anatomically correct….she’s just another of the many creatures that wander the pages of my sketchbooks….and started as a random mark on the page….
Figment is a small stocky pony that lives on the Emerald Isle. She can go places that larger horses can’t and can climb steep hillsides.
Sketch done from life. Homemade sketchbook using Stonehenge paper and Tombows.
I don’t think I ever actually dedicated a sketch page to a garlic bulb. Ever. I popped open my fridge and the bulb that was in there was a wild thing. It’s fresh but the ones I have been finding at the store are more loose-y goose-y like the one in the fridge with huge cloves of garlic. Yum.
So I sat at my desk and quickly sketched one from memory. Then I pulled out some paint and painted my garlic. Then I just started pulling out random materials for the hell of it and here we are; a mixed media garlic bulb.
Damn that was fun!
PS. This is in a homemade square sketchbook using mixed colors of toned Stonehenge paper.
I am still working on my project. This is another piece of the project. I am trying to get this done this week.
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.😂
There’s nothing like a moonlit evening by the water, hanging with a friend, just enjoying the moment.
Ran outta time today so I whipped this one up really quick.
