Day nine "swing", this time I did not do something as complicated as the pointillism of the previous day, but something more fun and could be said - relaxing -.

In this scene, we can see a kitten playing with her food (if my grandmother saw him she would scold him, the food is not played hahaha). I thought about many things for this day, because I didn't want to draw just one swing, but to add more elements that would stand out, and as I am prone to draw mice and frogs, here I bring you some fearless mice and a very lazy and playful cat (eating mice was a lie).


  • Opaline Cardboard (A4)
  • Black ballpoint pen
  • HB Pencil

-Step 1:

HB pencil, to sketch thtrokes.


-Step 2:

Black ballpoint pen, for the total derawing.



-Step 3:

More black ballpoint pen, here we go with the detail, starting with the detail of the tree, which sincerely was very cool, through faint stripes and some ink excesses I could achieve as bark.


-Step 4:

To the mice I have not given much color, implying that his coat is very clear, on the contrary to the cat I have detailed it a little more, melting his coat with the grass. I feel that I lack a bird or a butterfly to complete the nk?


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.

Hermosa composición en escena, se hace más relevante cuando incluimos elementos cotidianos que nos generan felicidad y una profunda realidad, los columpios han sido el juguete perfecto, divertido y sofisticado de nuestra época de niñez, me gusta que lo hayas incluido en tu obra de arte. Es increíble como todos los elementos que escogiste hicieron una linda ilustración, me gusta los animales como se ven tan agradables y relajados, la forma en que diseñaste el arte es genial, además los detalles hacen de la misma un mundo total de fantasía e inocencia. Tienes una habilidad muy buena, eres un artista muy completo porque los pequeños detalles los hiciste resaltar y quedaron brillantes.
