I had some extra time over the last few days, so I made some extra Inktober pieces on black art cards. This series is a companion to the Seasonal Witch series I completed today, with a card for every season!
These were pretty quick to do. I sketched each piece with my Caran d’Ache non-photo blue pencil – they show up surprisingly well on the black art cards! Then quickly inked over it with my white Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Unfortunately, it takes about two layers of the Gelly Roll to make a nice bold white. You can see some patchy spots in the snowflake where I didn’t cover it quite enough. (Hmm, maybe I should go over it again. . . . ) Even so, they turned out really well! Especially since it only took about a half an hour each, instead of 2+ hours.
I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow; there’s another small series I’d like to do with other webcomic characters, but I also had a ton of fun with this art cards, so I don’t know! I guess we’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
