[Art] Inktober Days 8, 9, 10.

Overall for Inktober,
I've been working on a very large project.
But for the past few days I've been away,
and did some ballpoint pen sketches instead.
I actually really love it as a medium?

These are all really small irl.
Done with your standard trashy Kilometrico ballpoint pen

[Art] Hospital Firebird.

I started this on Monday, with a Kilometrico ballpoint pen.
I was waiting to see the Radiation Oncologist.
I kept working on it on Tuesday,
in a waiting room,
while waiting to see the ENT Surgeon.
And then I finished it on Wednesday,
in another hospital waiting room,
while waiting to see the base of skull Neurosurgeon.

All ballpoint pen.

[Art] Thylacine / Tasmanian tiger ballpoint pen sketch.

Working with Kilometrico black.
(A super stubborn one actually omg. So unpredictable.)
Inside an unlined Paperblanks Ultra.
And mostly, in honour of the scientific expedition
to the Cape York Peninsula
due to credible sightings.

It turns out I love that term.
'Credible sightings.'

[Art] A Corvid's Growth

Ballpoint pen on acid-free sustainable forest paper (courtesy of Paperblanks).
This corvid has already been spoken for,
and couldn't be going to a more awesome person.
It actually started out as a doodle,
and I didn't expect anything to come of it at all.

But it's left me thinking I should sketch/illustrate in cheapie ballpoint more often...

[Art] Woofs!

Uncoloured woofs.

These will all be made available for sale.

But in the meantime I love this part, where they're black and white, and still taking form.

[Art] BW of Unicorn Moon-Sickle: Courtship, and Fiji Iguana and Dandelions.

Here are some larger pieces that are yet to be coloured. One is a commission (I'm not officially taking on commissions at all, esp. not re: domesticated animals/pets/figurative stuff, but she is a long-time client and very patient with me, and she always gives me the most interesting subjects that ping me hard, in this case, a Fiji Iguana - and dandelions, heh. The dandelions are sentimental, she is a zookeeper/zoologist, and the Fiji Iguana she cared for used to love them). The other is a return to an old subject that I first/last drew in 2008. The Unicorn Moon-Sickle Bird of Paradise. I'd always loved the colour scheme and wanted to return to the faux birds of paradise again. So...I just did.

All done with 0.1 and 0.5 fineliner on illustration board.

You can also see a time-lapse video of some of the process here.

[Art] the Wisdom of the Poppy B/W

Phew, Photobucket seems to be uploading things again.

Anyway! Not yet coloured, ink on illustration board (0.1 and 0.5 size only), this was a good way to spend a day where I couldn't find the will to write, but could apparently find the will to illustrate this instead o.o
