Inktober 2018 (Days 10 & 11)…

I was finally able to draw late yesterday, well after my post was published.  But I think it helped to give myself a bit of a pep talk prior to drawing.

Inktober, day ten’s shape was a rounded trapezoid.  First I drew the eyes and mouth, then the feet… at some point I saw a cup of noodles, so I added noodles, which, by the way, were fun to draw. 😀

For the ink, I used syo-ro (pine tree dew, gray turquoise) with both a Maru (mapping) soft nip and a G nib.

Day eleven’s shape was, oddly, also a rounded trapezoid but with another on top upside down.  I’ve been working on this one all day, and I’m not quite finished, but I have an appointment at 7, and I didn’t want to rush it, so I’ll finish it up probably tomorrow.

The hard part once I have several monsters on the main page is trying to figure out how it will fit… so I decided to get out some tracing paper and figure out how the tentacles would work around the other monsters…

Once I felt it was going to work, I went to my trial page to see how it would do with dip ink…

Looking good. 🙂  I’ll probably tweak a few parts, but I like how it fits.  Like I said, I didn’t get to the final drawing on this one yet… it’ll be in the next post.  Welp, I gotta get going!

Until next time…
