Inktober has come to a close. NaNoWriMo week one is over without me. I’ve been involved in a self-imposed “DrawMo” instead. I haven’t made my goal of doing a drawing per day as I had intended, but I have done more drawing in a week since before my book wrapped. I haven’t gotten into doing any sketches for my next book yet. I have been using the time to practice using Christopher Hart’s book, Manga Mania: Occult and Horror and daily drawing assignments from @Sketch_Dailies on twitter. I would like to share with you my DrawMo drawings from this past week.
“Urban Vampire” from Manga Mania: Occult & Horror
“Glamour Vampire” from Manga Mania: Occult & Horror
Skull Kid from Majora’s Mask
I used a combination of markers and crayons, especially for the last one. I still can’t find my nice Prismacolor colored-pencils, or fancy expensive markers from college. As new art supplies are not in my budget right now, I’ve been working with what I have. I love to color and the crayons offer more color choices than the small set of markers I own and are good for blending.
Don’t forget three weeks from tomorrow is My Book Signing. I’m debating whether or not to have prints of some of my drawings for sale in addition to my book. I haven’t been too pleased with the quality of prints I’ve done in the past, so if you have any recommendations of a company to go through please let me know!
