In 2012 I picked up a pencil for the first time in almost twenty years. I call myself a sometimes artist as I am still learning all the techniques I’ve forgotten and developing a style that I feel comfortable with. The most important thing is to never give in and keep drawing outside your comfort zone, I hope you enjoy my journey so far…
It happens once a year, artists gather on the interwebs and take part in a drawing event that runs for the entire month of October – this event is Inktober and 2017 marks my fourth year of taking part in this celebration of the basic form of ink art.
Drawing Outside Your Comfortzone is all about taking on projects or ideas that stretch my drawing abilities and take me in a different direction. In this installment I take on a series of Animal Mascots for EMA Family Karate, a local Dojo and Gym that my family are members of.
Welcome to the last ‘Drawing Outside Your Comfortzone’ for 2016, the series of posts that exist to prod you into just drawing!
Now, I have never once pretended to be a good artist, through trial and error, and a lot of practice I’ve managed to make a few things work – with only a few more hours left in 2016 and it is time to take a look at the art I have drawn, sketched, and attempted over 2016.
Inktober is an annual event set in the month of October, the idea is you draw one ink-based sketch a day for thirty-one days. This is the third year I have taken part in this event and this year I choose the theme of Teddy Bear/Superhero mash-ups, with of course, my traditional Halloween themed Monster sketch to cap the event off at Day 31… Take the jump and see how I did.
