#inktober 10/31 : Gorilla 🦍 ⠀
⠀
Not sure how I feel about how this one turned out. I’m not too crazy about it, honestly. Oh well, on to the next one! 🤷‍♀️⠀ ⠀

#inktober 9/31 : Crocodile 🐊 ⠀
⠀
Did you know crocodiles have the strongest bite ever measured? Humans have a bite of about 200 psi, but certain crocs, like saltwater ones, can have bites of up to 7700 psi. That’s the estimated LOW END of a T. Rex bite! 🤯 ⠀
⠀

⠀
Seriously cool creatures. Would not want to meet one in person, though. ⠀

#inktober 8/31 : Cat 🐈 ⠀
⠀
Feeline’ cute, might cast a spell later. ✨⠀
⠀
Just wanted to do something cute and fun this time, so enjoy this witchling and her ghostly kitty familiars. ⠀
⠀
Also, I’m not sorry for the pun. ⠀

#inktober 7/31 : Bison ⠀
⠀
While searching for reference images, I came across a photo from the 1800s of a literal mountain of bison skulls. That photo inspired this drawing. The American Bison was almost hunted to extinction centuries ago, with only a few hundred of them being left alive. According to Natl Geographic, there’s around 500,000 of them now, but they’re being raised in captivity. ⠀
⠀
The design on the top skull isn’t anything special, just a similar design to a decorative mirror I have at home. ⠀

#inktober 6/31 : Snake 🐍 ⠀
⠀
This was a challenge to ink. So. Many. Ribs. 😖 Maybe I shouldn’t have added the background? There was so much white space, it felt off balance. What do you think, should I have skipped it?⠀
⠀
Also, had Godsmack’s “Voodoo” playing on repeat in my head while drawing this one out. ⠀ ———————————————⠀

#inktober 5/31 : Fox 🦊 ⠀
⠀
Foxes are funny little creatures to me. They’re canines (from the Vulpes genus), but are almost feline at the same time. I love their triangular ears and mischievous faces the most. ⠀

#inktober 3/31 : Ram 🐏 ⠀

Do something simple, I said. To give yourself a little break, I said. Don’t over do the horns, I said. 🙄⠀

#inktober 2/31 : Wolf 🐺 ⠀
⠀
I had the concept of some ghostly wolf forms with a touch of Red Riding Hood. Check out my stories for some #bts of my process! ⠀

Day 1 : Deer 🦌 ⠀
⠀
It took me some time to settle on a design for this one. I almost put a person in it, but felt it would be too complicated. I plan on incorporating some people into the pieces eventually. ⠀
⠀
Just curious, should I share my materials list in my stories? Yes? No?⠀

All done! I’m calling this one “Hide and Seek”. One last bright flash of color before the monotone of Inktober sets in. 😏 Swipe to see some close ups 🔎⠀
⠀
I haven’t ever mentioned this before, but this piece is the third and final of an accidental series. When I painted my first “flower face” piece years ago, I hadn’t intended on turning it into a small series. But as I worked with concepts and sketches, I realized I’d unintentionally picked up a theme and turned it into a 3 piece series. I’m going to delve more into why I did this and what the series means in a blog post. I’m also happy to say I recorded most of the process of this painting so I’ll have a time lapse video to share, too! 🙌

Today, I made myself sit down and sketch out some ideas for new shop items. I’ve had a hard time doing this lately. I’m not really sure why it’s been so hard to sit and focus but these things aren’t going to make themselves, so I’ve got to do it! 😤 ⠀
I’m planning on a reopening in November, so before then I’m going to make some changes to what I had before, how it was priced, and offer some new things I haven’t ever had before! It’s a lot of work but the biggest reward is sending off something with my art on it to someone else. That’s such an awesome feeling! ⠀
So, I’m going to eat some lunch and then sit my butt down and work on a painting so it’s done before the end of the month. Because once October runs around, I probably won’t have time to finish it. 🙈⠀

Confession : I’m a water bottle collector. I rarely drink out of a cup. I’ve had this plain white bottle for several months and realized it had some prime sticker real-estate on it. There’s still a bit of room left, so I still have some sticker shopping to do. 👀 💵 ⠀

Trying to get this one done before the end of the month! ⠀
I’m planning on reopening my store in November, and having some new items and bundles available. There’s a lot to do before then!⠀
If you want to know when I’m officially open (since you’ll most likely miss any announcements here), I have a newsletter and I’ll let you know when it happens! There’s an easy sign up link in my bio. :)⠀

#tbt from last year’s Inktober. I thought by doing 15 pieces instead of 31, I would be making things easier on myself. I feel like I flaked out on a fun challenge, though! I know I can do better, so I’m looking forward to some self redemption this year. 😁 I have a theme picked out, too, but I’ll keep it a secret...for now. 👀⠀

If you’re wondering where that giant smear came from, swipe left. 🙈⠀
⠀
I wanted to practice a bit with some supplies and techniques pre-Inktober season when disaster struck. ⠀
Lesson learned : keep your ink bottle caps secure and fastened at all times. 💫⠀
