Pen and ink birds
Inktober is a drawing challenge where you create one ink drawing a day throughout the entire month of October. As well as creating digital drawings around the official Inktober prompt list, I have also created my own prompt list for this month's Inktober challenge. My own prompt word for today's drawing is birds, I created two ink drawings on this theme using my dip pen, brush, wax, water and drawing inks.
Herons are one of my favourite birds, I often see one flying over my house. On rare occasions I have also had a woodpecker visit the bird feeders in my garden, it's easy to spot with its black and white feathers and patches of red.
If you want to see some of my previous ink illustrations check out DWELLING, an illustrated crime novel collaboration between myself and fellow Steemian @dougkarr, set in New York’s Lower East Side. Dwelling is now available in print and ePub.
