Inktober 2019 Day 15 – Legend

The only legend I could think of was that of a unicorn. Also there is the saying, that if you can be a unicorn, be a unicorn.

Happy Monday!

Inktober 2019 Day 14 – Overgrown

I wanted to draw another dragon. This one went to take a nap in the forest. After a long slumber he woke up only to discover that he was surrounded by forest flora and fauna.

Inktober 2019 Day 11 – Snow

Snow is not here yet but winter is definitely on the way. We just will have to make the best out of it I guess.

Inktober 2019 Day 9 – Swing

Of course the only swing that came to mind was an aerial hoop ring. What better way to swing around and have fun in the air!

Inktober 2019 Day 10 – Pattern

I actually caught up with my ink drawings but my camera is on strike… so just one fashionable fox at the moment inspired by Brian´s travellers series on Equinoxio. Don´t ask me how I ended up with this fox…!?

Merci.

Inktober 2019 Day 5 – Build

I loved Tetris when I was young. Would play it hours on end until I would see little moving cubes behind my closed eyelids.

Inktober 2019 Day 1 – Ring

I really was looking forward to Inktober this year, after I had so much fun last year! Check it out here.

I got my ink and sketchbook already ready a week ago. After a quiet month of not drawing a lot I was looking forward to get into it again. And I really missed using ink. Of course I already managed to get ink all over my hands. Wouldn´t be inktober without that! So let´s have fun with this!

I’m going to follow the official Inktober prompt list again. Maybe in combination with a little fox. Lets see what happens.

Cat Yoga II

Another drawing from Greece, back in May.

One of the cats at the pole studio in Athens enjoys lying under people while they are doing the plank. What better motivation than to hold the plank just a little bit longer? Cat-cercise…? Is that a thing?

Cat Yoga I

Lazy Saturday morning. Trying to get up to do some yoga… I found this drawing that I did back in May when I was still in Athens and enjoying the sun. I really miss Greece….

Inspiration was the two cats they have at the pole studio, where I went for aerial hoop training in Athens. Whenever you put the mat down on the ground to stretch, one of the cats would come and lie down on it and claim the space or sharpen its nails on the mat. It was actually a lot of fun to have them around as entertainment.

World Watercolor Month Wrap-Up

Finished later than planned but eventually did it. My 31 prompts for World Watercolour Month of 2019. In addition to following the prompt list I also tried to incorporate a traveller theme.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I feel that I got a lot faster at sketching, and proportions and people come easier to me now after a month (and a half) of almost consistent daily drawing. I will definitely keep going. Time to look for another challenge… Any suggestions?

Which one is your favourite?

I think mine are the pooping monkeys (#22) and me relaxing in the hammock (#16).

Day 31 – Favourite Colours #WorldWatercolorMonth

Made it to the last prompt of World Watercolor Month – Favorite Colors! I was at a total loss of what to draw, so I took my favourite photo of me and the boyfriend from our fabulous Crete trip in April as inspiration, and just went with it. It is basically us monkeying around in a beautiful forest.

Have a great weekend everyone!
