This is definitely happening. I got this sketchbook from a friend here in Japan who remains to be unnamed. She challenged me to do this BIG BADASS SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE which is simply the SKETCHBOOK SLAM CHALLENGE (#sketchbookslam) that has a lot of the artists on all forms of social media going. Basically, its a challenge to fill this 600 page 8×10 sketchbook in one month. I see a lot of the finished sketchbook tours on youtube, instagram and facebook and I thought “WOW!” is that actually possible?
However, since I have a life and I think it would be more productive for me if I can do this challenge without killing my hand. I decided to do things a little differently.
I did a speedpaint for Day 7: Lost and it is of Nico di Angelo from Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan.Check it out below!
Nico is a lost child and he spent a lot of time being searched for by people. So I thought he would be a good subject… Plus i got a request. Hit 2 birds with one stone right? so here
there will be some new stuff coming on the blog! 🙂 watch out for it soon!
Ok, so it was busy! But I have to update you on my Inktober stuff. I have not missed a day and it really was fun. Just click to see the full picture!
DAY 3: COLLECT
For obvious reasons , I collect ART MATERIALS. I am a hoarder and I cant seem to stop! I did this inktober on my art journal/ leuchtturm1917 had fun with using plain inks and just drawing in the raw.
DAY 4: HUNGRY
A 10 minute sketch of ponyo and her ham ramen XD this was a crowd favorite. I inked with brushpens, colored with copics and yeah, made a rough mess. but this was fun!
DAY 5: SAD
I was literally sad this day as I had a a migraine. Drew this one at the doctors office on my Bullet Journal
DAY 6: HIDDEN
In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit.
I thought that it was appropriate, hobbits are creatures that can stay unseen to those they do not want to see them and they stay hidden in the Shire. Plus, Bagend was hidden under the tree.Done with brush pens and copics in 15 mins. I had a lot of fun!
Tonight I do DAY 7! So far so good! i have not missed a day!
