“Thief of Always” is horror book for kids, I’ve been listening to audio version this week. It resembles a bit Pinokio’s adventure in happy holiday country. The little girl you can see in this picture will turn into a fish soon. This fan art piece was made just for fun of smearing paints on smooth surface; I have found another piece of coated carton.
Gouache paints. I quite often use gouache in quasi-watercolor mode, but this time I have tried to use thick paint.
Cherry vampire again, disguised. The topic of the day is “Mask”. Black, red and yellow ink. I also own blue and sepia ink but I thought maybe three were enough this time. Important! Please notice what is happening to the biten cherries. The concept comes from a fellow DA member, Sketchman (thank you!).
Aurora got to the top of the tower, and it’s time to decide what has happened there. The topic of the day is “united”, so… how about unexpected cross-generation friendship? Maybe a hundred years of sleep was really Aurora’s idea. She was told an ideal prince for her wasn’t born yet, so what else could she say but: “oh, Granny, do something! I can’t be old when he’s twenty!”
Inktober Day 27 is about climbing. So here she is, going to the top of the tower to meet her fate. Fairytale princesses have got this instinct; they always go straight to the most dangerous spot. Same about pretty blond girls in horror movies, but princesses were doing it much earlier. Tales of Sleeping Beauty or Bluebeard’s wife were told long before cinematograph was invented.
The Oshun Oxtra in its late, fully developed state, when it could sail, fly and dive. The topic of the day is “ship” and this is surely the best ship ever built.
I’m late with Inktober schedule, so one more drawing today. The topic is “Juicy”. Black and red ink.
Victorian ladies should be sweet, quiet and forgiving like angels, but were they? And what when nobody watched them? Black and white ink.
Day 19, “Cloud”. Black and white ink. This cloud was hard on my drawing paper, too wet. I should have used watercolor materials. Luckily I haven’t made a big hole in the picture.
