Quick character today as I am working on finishing up a painting. This is Tyke Crooner. He is singing away some sort of tune. Happy dog. #100dayproject

Ballpoint pen with watercolor drawn on super tiny watercolor paper. About 2″ x 3″.

This is the first day of my #the100dayproject. Salty Topper the seagull in her derby hat. I’m at the beach, so today’s character is beach inspired. I love finding fancy hats to put on my character heads.

The one thing I am sorry about is the quality of this image…I am not at home, so don’t have access to a scanner. A regular photo will have to do. I want to make sure I document each day for the project.

I wonder what tomorrow will reveal.

The 100 Day Project

I have been working on drawing characters every day since February 17, 2018. My goal is to draw one character each day in a daily diary book. I have missed a few days. I recently ran across #the100dayproject on Facebook, and thought, maybe this will help keep me on track!

My hope is to draw a character a day through the entire year–but 100 days might make it feel a little more manageable. After the 100 days is over, I will review all the drawings and choose some fav’s to revise and develop into an illustrated story.

Some of these character drawings take an hour, some only 10 minutes. Most of them have names. They are a lot fun, and help me stay creative even when time is limited.

I’ll keep the blog posted. These are some of the characters I have done since I started in February.

Inktober is Over

SCAN0268

I did a pretty good job keeping up, I missed a few days here and there but overall I feel pretty good about it. One thing I didn’t do was follow the prompts…for some reason this year I felt a little overwhelmed by the prompts. #sktchy proved a good inspiration source for #inktober this year.

Already looking forward to next year!

Oh, and it was super exciting to be one of the #sktchy picks! That was cool.

Still keeping up!

Day 15 and 16 of #inktober. Not spending loads of time on my drawings, but I feel good that I am getting in one a day! It’s a back to the day job day, so hoping to get one in after work today.

Really enjoyed drawing our friend John Gray’s dog Sunshine. She looks so sad looking up at us! I need to draw her with her happy face next. Below is from #sktchy with some nice orange ink.

Faces

I don’t know why but I love doing these faces…quickly! I spent the last two day’s in class for my day job, so not a lot of time for #inktober. This was super quick before bed. Simple. I like the shapes though, I think it would be fun to go back to my quick sketches and take a little more time refining the shapes. Thanks to #sktchy for the resource.
