Inktober 2019 – How I’m Prepping

Ah, yes. In the northern hemisphere, the weather is turning milder, the days are becoming shorter. Pumpkin spice is filling up the air…and the Inktober prompts are here! (Well, they have been since September 1st 😛 – Here is the link to the official Inktober site, started by Jake Parker: (click here))

Once again, the question arises. Will I be taking on the 31 day drawing and inking challenge in October known as Inktober? 

The short answer is: Yes, yes I will be.  

The longer, more detailed answer is: Yes, but with a heck load of preparation before hand! Let me expand on this further….

Studio Space: A Quick Look

Hello!

So it was recently share your studio space day (according to Instagram trends) and of course, me being fashionably late to these things, I decided to join in show you my studio space!

Here it is in all its glory:

It’s nothing that impressing honestly. Just a laptop (Macbook Pro 2014), my XP-Pen 16 Artist Pro (that I got only a few months back) and a bunch of sketchbooks in the wall shelf in the back. And of course, all those wires in the far back to keep my electronics up and running.

I am but a simple person 🙂

Also, I think the room I have right now has the worst camera lighting (if it wasn’t obvious enough) since it’s a tube light and it’s on only one side of the room. It’s perfect for non-camera stuff though and doesn’t hurt my eyes so I guess that’s a good payoff? (Sure, why not)

So, yeah, that’s my humble little studio space where I create my stuff. Hope you liked this extremely short tour of my workspace!

Peace ^.^

Art Process – Digital Painting of Lord Nandhi

Digital Painting Process – Lord Nandhi

Hello, hello!

So, I decided to try something new (new for me, that is) and made a short video of my digital painting process of one of my recent pieces. 

I always work my way from base colors to shading to details and I hope this provides a little bit of insight into my art processes! Note: I sometimes break the rule of flow listed and shown here, but hey, ya gotta do whatchya gotta do when it comes to experimenting and stuff!

Peace ^.^
