Day Thirteen of PiBoIdMo and SkAdaMo

SkAdaMo

So this is a sketch in pencil instead of ink and color ink washes. I’ve been aiming to work entirely in ink since Inktober started, which of course is good practice. But this afternoon the sun was streaming into the studio and I just needed to do some pencil noodling. I think I have the frilly lady out of my system now. . .I’m going back to animals!

      Thanks, Monica! Sometimes I lose site of the forest while decorating one tree. I’m working at having the overall shape be more interesting before I put on my magnifying glasses to doodle. It is so easy to make that mistake with digital media. . . zooming in to a tiny area and painting with a one pixel brush. Yeah, I did that too many times before I realized no one could see it unless they had the original high res file and could zoom in, too!

    I totally understand what you’re saying, but I also love your details. Some people hide in the details, but yours really enhance!
