I'm still three days late!
Well, it's my turn to move my hand and pencil faster, the ideas I have in mind. It's time for topic #4 "freeze" for this one I have more information than I draw.
Hollywood has lied to us all this time, almost in all space movies. Remember that typical scene where someone is ejected into space and immediately freezes if they don't have a space suit? Or when their suit breaks and immediately their face freezes? Well this is not true, if you were unprotected in the void of space, freezing would be the last thing that would happen. That's right, first your body would inflate and your lungs would be badly hurt when the vacuum takes the air out of your body - terrifying, isn't it? Freezing immediately would be best, but this wouldn't happen until much later and only if the sun doesn't give you a little light.

- Opaline Cardboard (A4)
- Black ballpoint pen
- Marker Black thick tip
Now, going back to the drawing, take a HB pencil and draw very soft strokes (in fact them).
Then, with the help of the black pen, outline my entire drawing fo guide.
This time I tried something I had never done before, the pointillism, I tried it and I loved it, it leaves a very nice and striking result, I will definitely use it more often alatience.
Finally came the step that was supposed to be fast and simple, ink the space in black, I took longer than I thought because I had to give several layers with the black marker, but I lo.
I'll leave you a little gif with the whole process in it, so you can better appreciate the step by step.
What is inktober?
The inktober is an initiative created by the illustrator Jake Parker in 2009, in order to improve his artistic skills, although over the years has made a great impact on the international artistic community. The challenge is to make a drawing with ink every day, hence its name, "ink" (ink) "tober" (October), although for the most part this is respected, many other artists prefer to stay in their comfort zone, so you can see illustrations made with watercolors, graphite, charcoal, digital and any existing technique.
