My Inner Sloth

I went to yoga/ flex class the other day and it was super exhausting. The whole time I felt like I am struggling against my inner sloth. I am pretty sure that that´s what it was.

What inner animal are you struggling with?

My Inner Tiger

I´m still using my ink. This one was inspired by a comment of Wes on one of my last yoga scenes. Thank you!

I leave it up to you whether the tiger is waiting to eat her or there to empower her…

Inktober Leftover – Stretch III

Another yoga session. This one for all the cat lovers amongst you. I think you can figure out my take on cats and yoga?

Inktober Leftover – Stretch II

Anyone feels like doing more yoga?

Another one that I started for the Inktober prompt Stretch, but then felt like I had messed up the inking. So I left it until I was bored the other day and I finished it. I don´t think it is that terrible after all.

Now I´m thinking if I should add colourful yoga mats to the other drawings too? What do you think?

Yes, I just discovered the slide show feature.

Inktober Leftover – Stretch

Number 2 of dog yoga drawings. I started sketching this one for the Inktober prompt – Stretch – but then went with the other one as I thought it was more fun. But I think these two are not doing so badly either.

Inktober Leftover

I originally started drawing this one for the last prompt of Inktober titled slice.

But as the woman has finished eating almost all the cheese, I thought that the drawing did not fit the prompt that well any longer. Therefore, what you get are the leftovers.

Inktober Day 31 – Slice

I forgot to post the last of my Inktober drawings. After not having much of a social life in October, I went full force into it again since the beginning of November. So I have spent less time at home and more time out and about.

With the last prompt I decided to revisit the surreal landscape (and the man with the hat) of my first Inktober drawing. I know, the shading is all over the place. I was tired.

I really enjoyed the month though. I think I learned a lot in terms of sketching faster and also practiced “creative thinking”. Although in the end I struggled quite a bit, but I think that was more because I was juggling work and university on the side as well. I will try to keep on going with ink every once in a while and not just forget all about it again. I haven´t decided on a new project yet but I have plenty of ideas. So watch this space.

Inktober Day 30 – Jolt

Part 2 of my series titled Cats are Assholes.

I was reminded of the phrase “Das Leben ist kein Ponyhof” (literal translation: Life is not a pony farm) the other day, and thought it is quite fitting here on the wall. It means “Life ain´t easy.”

Inktober Day 28 – Gift

I thought this would be one of the easier prompts, but I quite struggled with it. I actually drew a total blank, so I left it for 2 days… Not sure what I want to say with this drawing either. A race to the top? Beer as reward? Where is the gift? You figure it out.

Inktober Day 27 – Thunder

I really have been struggling with the last couple of prompts for Inktober. I feel like I slowly ran out of ideas. But after taking a short break for 3 days I finally finished  the last one yesterday. So I will post the last few drawings during the week. Then I think I will be back to colour!

Don´t steal my thunder.

Inktober Day 26 – Stretch

Apparently dog yoga is a thing? have you done it? Somehow I cannot see a dog enjoying it unless you have the right bribes.

I prefer regular yoga. But if I get a dog, I might try this.

Inktober Day 25 – Prickly

Oktober is over and I am behind in posting the last couple of drawings.  Because of work and studies I am also still missing the last two prompts. So I will just keep on going.

I realized how cruel this image is, after I googled dogs vs porcupines. So not pretty.
