Inktober Day 6: Sword (Thoughts)

Here is today’s submission:

I was completely stymied yesterday by the prompt, “long,” which is why I don’t have a submission for day 5. 

However, I refuse to let one day end the enjoyment and challenge that I are the benefits of the whole process of Inktober. 

My thoughts:

  1. This is the second submission that I have used watered down paint (gouache) like ink washes to help provide shading and depth. I don’t own ink washes yet, so I have to make do. 
  2. While I am still experimenting with color vs water ratios and brush strokes and styles, I feel like their use adds a much needed dimension to my submissions. 
  3. This is the first submission so far where I feel it is cohesive stylistically. I have no idea what my personal style may be, but this piece seems unified, which I was pleasantly surprised by. 

Hope you are still enjoying Inktober!
