After a very lovely but short vacation it is back to the grind.
I had all of my drawings done for the three piece flower panels i have been working on but that was just the beginning. Today was spent re-drawing everything with a waterproof pen and just getting lost in the lines.
I actually really enjoy the redrawing and inking process because its kind of like an editing phase. I don't really think about how its not going anywhere once I lay the ink down but more so what I feel like making stand out. I'd say only about 85% of my original drawings stay once inked. I want my end product to be more of a well defined, simplified version of my original sketchy drawing.
Along with the three panels I was also able to get some sketching for fun done by working on an octopus I had done a background for a couple of months ago. I like to mix it up going back and forth with this kind of stuff because I hate having to be serious with art all the time. It should be about the process too.
Until next time,
