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 16 – Angular

Prompt #16 for Inktober… an angular landscape, with a lynx, a hare and the man with the hat.

Inktober Day 15 – Weak

A bit behind with drawing, as this was my state the last couple of days while I was studying for an exam beside work. Self portrait so to speak, with my favourite black heals.

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.

Inktober Day 9 – Precious

If the chicken needs a break, you can hop on your precious dragon to take you places.

I wish he could take me to work right now, so I´d avoid the traffic.

What does the flying bottle do there you might wonder? I thought about a snitch first, which turned into a bottle of beer, which is the carrot for the dragon to keep him going the right direction.

Inktober Day 3 – Roasted

This not what I had in mind at all when I started drawing. I thought of roasted meat.. but non of the things I sketched out I actually liked. So I went a completely different direction.

What better than a dark roast in the morning? I am nothing without a good cup of coffee. What about you?

Inktober Day 2 – Tranquil

Drew this last night but did not have time to post it.

Tranquility…. to be destroyed.

What I would like to do right now: perfect picnic with a glass of very dark and heavy red wine and giant pieces of Gruyere, Manchego and Comté.

Inktober 2018 – Poisonous

It´s been almost exactly a year since I started drawing again. I think I started on day 9 last year after a friend told me I should give Inktober a try. She found it a shame that I was not drawing any more and right she was.

I remember that during the first two weeks everything was a struggle. Finding an idea of what to draw was a struggle, despite the prompt list. Drawing was a struggle. Ink was everywhere and using it was a struggle.

Today was quite the opposite.  The only struggle I had, was to make time for it. I even bought new ink. I still managed to get ink on my hands and table but I had fun.
