How about this cutie! One thing InkTober and "Design 100 somethings" has done for me is just get me drawing more. I've had a lot of fun lately pulling out old photos and drawing these characters. Below is the ink drawing which I did after the one above (I think I'm probably doing this backward). These computer sketches are just so much fun!

Boy on Seahorse

This is a completely digital piece that began as a sketch for the "100 somethings" project.

Below is the first sketch:

Gangsta and Sista

 Here's my Wednesday InkTober post! I really like these, and I'm liking the "less is more" approach to my inking skills. I did these after watching a character design class on SVS Learn. I worked from a couple of photos of my kids and sketched right onto the computer. Below is what the original computer sketches looked like. I then traced lightly with pencil and inked them on 24# copy paper. #inktober #inktober2016

Here's what I did with my pens. #inktober #inktober2016

And here's what it looks like after I dropped it into Corel Paint and used the blending tool, and a little airbrush to the back wall.

Ellen's Kids

     I've had a busy week, so I'm happy to have met my Wednesday/Saturday goal. I began this with another favorite photo of my kids. I wasn't going for a great likeness of them but I achieved it anyway with Ellen, our dog. #inktober #inktober2016

Bonsai - InkTober Post #3

 This one was inspired by a family trip to Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati,
and a beautiful display of bonsai trees. #inktober #inktober2016

Below are #5 and #9 of the other project (100 somethings) that I'm working on.
