Inked Figures

Since it’s #inktober, I attempted to use only inks for life drawing. Well, except for one-minute gestures where I used charcoal: something about smooshing very soft charcoal into newsprint helps me warm up better than any other medium. Here are the ink drawings.

On the left, acrylic ink on cheap paper. On the right, almost-blind-contour bamboo and ink on paper.

This one is in acrylic ink. I drew with the droppers. The only bit that uses a brush is the blue hair.

On the left, chinese ink, brush, bamboo pen. I just love how India ink and Chinese ink disperse when water hits them.

Are you deep in #inktober? Doing a few? Thinking of doing some? Do it, it all counts!
