Aster again

Today’s face: Aster, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “blind”.

Drawn in a Fabriano Venezia sketchbook with a dip pen and Dr Ph Martins Black Star India ink and painted with Jane Davenport and Greenleaf and Blueberry watercolours.


Erin

Today’s face: Erin, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “furious”. One of the things I’m really enjoying about Inktober this year is hunting around on Sktchy for the perfect inspiration photo for each of the prompts. At the beginning of the month I didn’t think I was going to bother with the prompts but as time has gone on this search has become what I look forward to the most. This photo of Erin’s was just perfect for furious!

Drawn in a Fabriano Venezia sketchbook with Kuretake Zig Menso paintbrushes, a dip pen and Dr Ph Martins Black Star India ink and painted with Sennelier and Greenleaf and Blueberry watercolours.


Evie

Today’s face: Evie, inspired by Sktchy and Inktober 2017 day 10, prompt ”gigantic”. This was way, way outside my comfort zone but I’ve had the inspiration photo in my Sktchy queue for a very long time so I decided to throw caution to the wind and just have some fun!

Jordan

Today’s face: Jordan, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt, ”Screech”.

Rick

Today’s face: Rick, inspired by Sktchy and Inktober 2017. Rick is something of a legend amongst the Sktchy community. He is one of the most popular muses and is constantly updating his feed with new photos for artists to draw. His photos are funny, thoughtful and interesting, and there are currently nearly 400 to choose from! What’s more, he has such a great face to draw to start with. I drew this for Day 7 of Inktober and the prompt “shy” ( yes, British irony). Right now so many artists are drawing him that October has been unofficially dubbed ricktober! If you’d like to follow him Sktchy username is @fallout42_n and his Instagram username is @niecejr.
