Content Notes: For the third week, I decided to try India ink and brush. I checked out a whole bunch of really helpful tutorials on YouTube, and managed to produce 4 pieces this week. In the final piece, I overlaid acrylic paint with the India ink.
I found that unlike watercolour, India Ink has a certain density about it, that gives a gorgeous matte finish when applied heavily, but also makes it far more difficult to lift off the page once it's been applied. I have had the best time looking at vids and trying out the ink drop technique. What a cool effect! :)

Content Notes: I was a day late for most of the end of the week, as I was very tired. But thinking about my inktober, planning my quotes and doing the drawings kept me going during a few difficult days.
Plenty of animals this week, a few fumbles with text placements, one major offence to Victor Hugo, and I started reusing some technics.
Next week I will try illustrating more scenes from books.
Also I'm meeting my one of my favorite authors in November : Guy Gavriel Kay, and the day I will see him will be his birthday, so I'm kinda planning to draw a scene from one of his book and give it to him...
Only I don't know what book and what quote, and what if the drawing isn't good enough?
I'm very stressed! >_<
