I felt my previous Inktober sketch was a bit on the flat side so decided to change that for this sketch. The forest theme remains the same as does the sub-theme of Pancake (my former Border Collie) and me walking through the forest. Overall I think this works much better and it took just a fraction of the time that the previous sketch took to complete.
For my second Inktober sketch I wanted to make something more in the spirit of the season (Autumn) and so decided to make a sketch of myself and Pancake, my Border Collie (or rather my former Border Collie), out for a walk in the woods during Autumn.
Didn’t turn out quite the way I envisioned so I’m a little disappointed in this one. An earlier trial sketch using just Pigma Micron fineliners I felt turned out better. I’m not going to show that earlier version because I made several mistakes too many but I’m thinking I should redo it.
Below, is the top sketch at an earlier stage; I think I actually might prefer this.
