Hi folks. Many of you know that there are a few #artists on #Diaspora* who brighten up our #timelines with their original work. One of them is @Katharsisdrill who produces #free #art (meaning that it is #freely #redistributable under a #CC #licence). I have just backed his #Kickstarter campaign which closes in about three weeks. If you like his work, have some spare cash and want to support a free #artist, then why not consider supporting those who produce work you enjoy? Or why not support those others that you like?

Day 27: Coat of Arms Pencil Before Brush


My interpretation for the 27th word of Inktober 2019, 'Coat'. A custom design coat of arms.

Well, again.... Inktober is over, but here is the "Coat" entry. All I'll say is that I twisted the prompt word up and designed my very own coat of arms.

I'm proud that I'm from England in that these sorts of designs hail from our history and the history of Europe mostly. I think they were first created way back in the 1300's and used as proud symbols by individual families - mostly by royals or the aristocracy, but on the odd occasion, also by the poor too. They're kind of like our version of the totem pole in a weird sort of way, haha.

Loosely describing it, these designs would comprise of elements that make up the coat of arms. A shield was often used in the centre alongside two "supporters" that hold up the shield (the supporters were animals most of the time). In the centre of the shield, there would be a design with symbols that had meaning, and there would be a crest on top, usually a crown or knights helmet. The format of a coat of arms differed somewhat between countries - the format I describe was commonly used in Britain.

I struggled with the floral parts of the crest quite a bit, but overall, this was moderately easy and fun to do.

This entry was completed using black ink and Faber Castell PITT pens on A5 paper. Hope you enjoy as always... sorry it's so late...

Day 31: Ripe For The Pecking


My interpretation for the 31st and final word of Inktober 2019, 'Ripe'. Some crows perched on a couple of ripe pumpkins.

For this final entry, I wanted to incorporate another Halloween element as this day corresponds to the day of Halloween. I found out that Pumpkins can be ripe, and as I am contemplating whether or not to release another Birdmas challenge into the fold, I drew some crows to accompany them.

I took my time doing this but didn't apply any pressure.... heck, I failed Inktober anyway, so why the hell not? I practiced some colouring in and tried my best to get into it as I was applying a wash layer by layer. Hopefully it's effective enough.

...So will Birdmas exist this year? I'm not sure, but one thing is for sure - I want it to.

This entry was drawn using a black fineliner and Inktense on A5 paper.

That's it! Finally this hell is over! I never thought I'd ever say this about Inktober, but this year's Inktober has been more of a chore than a pleasure. My decreased motivation, mixed with the horror of the prompt words made this a nightmare! I got a few good things out of it, but not much more than that. Add that to the fact that I failed this year to keep to constraints, and that's even more frustration. In any case... thanks so much to those that followed this. Here's hoping my next project isn't so uncomfortable. Cheers all!

Day 22: Haunted Shelf


My interpretation for the 22nd word of Inktober 2019, 'Ghost'. A ghost floating in front of an old bookshelf.

Hmm... I think I was expecting more of this, but then again, I'm not disappointed with this entry either - it's pretty alright again. My aim was to use Inktense as a strong saturated base, for which to use diluted white ink on top to create the illusion of a ghost that you can see through.

That's where the bookshelf comes in, since there are many irregularly sized shapes and colours, the see-through "ghosting" effect would be more successful, coupled with the fact that things like libraries and posh haunted houses, both of which contain bookshelves, can be the perfect setting for a ghostly atmosphere.

I'd say where I went slightly wrong is with the overall opacity of the white ink. I just wish it was slightly more weaker than it is to get that convincing illusion.

I'll add a side note, that I'm very thankful for at least having a DECENT AND RELEVANT prompt word!! Thank you!!!

This was completed using many different inks on A5 paper. Expecting more wacky unprofessionalism? You were...? Great! The tooth fairy doesn't exist, you fools! There you go! 😂😜🤟

I'm #newhere, though I was on diaspora a few years back, before it went all pod-like, but lost interest as it seemed too narrow in focus - or else I just didn’t understand how to break out into wider waters. Thought I might dip my toe back in again now that G+ is dead. #GPlusrefugee.

I’m an #artist born in #Scotland, work in #Ireland, and wish the #UK would remain in #Europe. I’m interested in #art, #environmentalism, #technology, #writing, & #science.
