Koray & Bobbie

Today’s face: Koray, inspired by Sktchy. I used today’s daily tip for the Sktchy subscription to guide my process when making this process. The tip, provided by artist Margriet Aasman, was to work on a page pre-painted with acrylic paint and to use the pre-painted surface as an inspiration for your creative decisions. I couldn’t find any acrylic paint but I did have some ink to paint my sketchbook book page with. I really enjoyed working on this and I love how it made me think differently about my process.

Drawn in a Moleskine watercolour sketchbook with a Micron 01 pen and painted with Zecchi Toscana watercolours on a page pre-painted with Winsor & Newton drawing ink.

I drew a second Sktchy face, Bobbie, on my iPad Pro using the same daily tip.

Nicole’s Twisted Carrots

Today’s face isn’t a face but a watercolour of Nicole’s twisted carrots, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “United”.

Aster again

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

Collin & friends

Today’s face: Collin & friends, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “filthy”. I decided to try something different today. I wanted to capture the frantic, filthy & fun atmosphere of Collin’s photo of holi festivities so I tried an ink single line contour drawing and then some watercolour and neocolour crayon. My sketchbook wasn’t wild about the mixed media but it survived!

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!
