Inktober 2017 – Week 3

This Week 3 of Inktober has been odd, I’ve actually had a fair bit of work to get on with, but amidst the clamour of deadlines Inktober had the loudest voice, gradually things began to become more and more elaborate! All the drawings over the third week were created in a Pilot Hi-Tec fineoint, either 0.4 or 0.5, I tried as far as possible to follow the optional prompts…..

Day 15 of #inktober 2017 and the prompt word was ‘mysterious’.

‘Promenade’.  Day 16, and something traditional for the prompt word: ‘fat’.

“Graceful Dreamer”, for Day 17.

‘Dirty Old Town’. Day 18, and the prompt word was “filthy”. I like the slightly off-white paper in my larger sketchbook, it particularly seemed to fit this drawing. 

“Clouds”, for Day 19. I drew this for Inktober, but also as a birthday gift for my sister-in-law, who now has the original drawing.

“Deep”, for Day 20. In contrast to Day 21 which followed, I knew exactly what I wanted this drawing to look like from the word go, and it pretty well turned out that way.

“Furious Wind”,  for Day 21. Coincidentally on the day that Storm Brian swept the UK! This was a drawing I started with the intention of making it quite simple, but it grew, just like the storm.

Things were getting very labour-intensive by the end of this week, I actually have commissioned work to get on with (but it just goes to show how much I’m enjoying this exercise!). Possibly I’m cutting back for the rest of the month…. but it takes me where it takes me.
