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?

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 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.

Inktober Day 21 – Drain

They were both so drained from playing outside that they needed a break.

Although I am also drained of being sick, which I have been the last couple of days, so this is also my current state…

Inktober Day 17 – Swollen

I quite struggled with this Inktober prompt. I had no idea what to draw. And then this was the outcome….? A hamster with swollen cheeks.

Inktober Day 14 – Clock

It´s ice cream o´clock… again.

My craving for sweets proportionately increases with the decrease in daylight hours.

The living room table is showing traces of inktober as well.

Inktober Day 11 – Cruel

Ok, the theme is definitely food orientated.

Cruel is when you had a long day at work and nothing to eat except for chocolate and biscuits and then you come home to this.

Or you wake up after a night of partying and all that is left in the fridge is this.

Inktober Day 10 – Flowing

Wow, so I got featured on WordPress Discover! Totally unexpected and what an amazing boost! ❤ Thank you!

Prompt for day 10 was “flowing”. I saw lots of drawings of beautiful flowing hair… Never would have thought of that. First thing that came to my mind were rivers of milk and honey, followed by this. I think I was hungry.
