Surprisingly enough I’m actually somehow still going on both the #inktober and #drawlloween challenges. Today was one of those days when that meant doing two sketches instead of one. Sunday is still my hand drawing day after all. I had to keep up with that. Today’s #drawlloween prompt was “raven” though and I couldn’t possibly resist that. I’ve been meaning to do a raven sketch anyway at some point. Not that this one is exactly the best example of that.
The only real problem with all of these challenges resulting in multi-sketch days is that I’ve been blowing through my sketchbook much faster. I now only have two pages left in my ink sketchbook. It’s turning into quite the precious commodity. I suppose that means I’ll have to decide what to do about completing the #inktober challenge sooner than anticipated. I had planned for my next sketchbook to be a charcoal sketchbook. So since I didn’t want to use another of my precious remaining ink sketchbook pages I figured I would do the raven in charcoal to get started on that one. I don’t have much experience with charcoal … or any really … so it’s going to take some adjustment.
