Inktober 2019 Day 31 – Ripe

Last but not least. Almost forgot to post this one, the last of the inktober prompts.

Happy first advent everyone!

Trying to catch Mr Mouse turned out to be too exhausting. Therefore little Mr Fox stuffed his face with ripe grapes instead.

Inktober – Catch me if you can!

Little fox was still hungry after he caught the fish. So he started chasing after a mouse he saw passing by.

Inktober 2019 Day 30 – Catch

I´m aware that Inktober finished a while ago, and I also finally managed to finish the last drawing. All my plans of keeping up with drawing daily got interrupted by visitors and spontaneous out of town adventures. But I am not really complaining about it, as it was a lot of fun too.

I really enjoyed the prompt list this year, and I am always curious and excited to see the differences of my drawings between the last years.

Inktober 2017 got me back into drawing, and it was a real struggle in the beginning.

2018 I had a lot of fun with different characters and surrealistic scenes.

This year I wanted to learn how to stick to a character, which eventually developed into little Mr. Fox. What could his first name be? Maybe Emil?

I also started to work on illustrating a children´s book. And this was supposed to be some kind of practice for it. I feel I should also make a story out of the little fox.
Hope you had fun with him too!

He didn´t know where the fish came from. But he tried to catch it anyway.

Inktober 2019 Day 26 – Dark

When you feel like the night has eyes. Actually I love how this one turned out. I was not really excited in the beginning but decided to go with the idea anyway. Now I am happy I did.

Inktober 2019 Day 23 – Ancient

I of course thought about the Acropolis when I heard ancient. I miss Greece, the culture and history all around. Iceland is rather poor in that respect.

Edit: I added some clouds to the drawing. Felt it looked a bit empty in the upper part.

Inktober 2019 Day 21 – Treasure

Books! A real treasure. I keep accumulating books but I cannot keep up with the reading. So my resolution is, to use the winter months to catch up with it! What about you?

Inktober 2019 Day 20 – Tread

I couldn´t really think of anything for this prompt,  so I made the little fox cross a creek on his adventure to… the unknown.

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!
