Well, this time around I was aware that Inktober existed so I gave it a shot. I only managed to create 11 sketches out of the supposed 31 (most of which have been uploaded to my Instagram account (…) :P However, I'm not ashamed of the meagre number since some of those drawings were actually a lot of effort (e.g. Cat Beard and Welcome to Isengard - The University of Birmingham) plus I entered a few art competitions. Not to mention working 2 part time jobs (I dropped a 3rd because it was getting a bit much ;P). Not to mention the Halloween parties :P. I hammered out some quality stuff that I was proud of in the end along with some silly things that amused me that were in my head for a long time. And along the way I think I got a little more practice using the pentel brush pen and general art practice I otherwise wouldn't have. Hopefully the art will be bigger and better next year!

Onwards, completely unprepared to hopefully actually attempt Nanowrimo this year!

Finally got over my hatred of self-portraits! How I wished I looked on Halloween!

I am a hobbyist artist although to make a living from my art is the dream. Please feel free to check out my Red Bubble account below!


Great job on the lighting and the anatomy of the creatures. The snarl of the wolf is done really well. I think my main constructive criticism would have to be on the lack of textures in this scene.You are quite good at digital painting but everything in this picture is rather smooth - the fur and I imagine the sky might have a bit of a cloudy texture to it. I think the grass could have used some harder/more opaque brushes because you can tell some bits blend into each other a bit too much. But other than that this is a really striking picture!

You're welcome! It's actually a very useful reference image - although I'm not 100% sure if it's a robin. The head isn't red like the other pictures of robins I have seen.
