Inktober 2020- Part 5 & 6

Once again I am doing a dual-prompt post. Today’s drawing is inspired by the prompts “blade” and “rodent”.

She is also heavily inspired by my favorite television show and comic “Sailor Moon”. In the Japanese version of the story, her name is “Usagi Tsukino” which means “Rabbit of the Moon”. We have the “Man in the Moon” in the West, and in Japan it is a rabbit making mochi in a mortar and pestle. Which not only inspires her name, of course, but also the drawing/tattoo on her back.

I picked a stylized drawing of Usagi holding a katana BLADE and drew her with a number of tattoos including a rabbit. I thought rabbits were RODENTS but they are actually of the taxonomic order “lagomorph”, so this drawing for the prompt “rodent” was made under that false assumption of rabbits as rodents. You learn something new every day. ;-)

Inktober 2020- Part 3 & 4

Today’s post is another Inktober drawing. I fell a little behind, but I am not letting that deter me. Today I focused on two prompts to make up for the “delay”. The prompts of the days were “bulky” and “radio”. I chose to draw a young lady in an oversized sweater grooving to the beat from a similarly oversized retro boom box.

No newfangled AirPods for this groove

I had fun drawing this illustration. A benefit of drawing digitally is that you can work out a pose a little more easily than drawing traditionally. I also added a pop of color.

Follow up from yesterday’s post about “Inktober” with today’s drawing with the prompt “wisp”. For those of you unfamiliar with video games, “Wisp” is a ghost character in a video game called “Animal Crossing”. I love the little cute and friendly ghost, so I decided to draw him. When scared by the player, he bursts in to tiny will-o-whisps.

I also tried coloring this drawing digitally using bold color fills.

Catching Up

Gosh, it’s been a while! I hope you all are well. I apologize for my absence, but I feel it was rather well-deserved. In case you’re wondering, Yes, I’ve been quite busy this last month. In the last 30+ days I have…

Gotten a job offer to from a company that I’ve always wanted to work for. They had an opening at a location near my house, and I was able to apply for the job. They gave me an offer for a part-time position which I would have taken under any other circumstance, but…

The NEXT DAY I got a job offer with another company for full-time design work! (When it rains it pours, right?) This came rather out of the blue. They are a locally owned, independent company with a good reputation that puts out great work.  Full time work makes the most sense for me right now, so I picked the latter. It’s a fun, fast-paced, and very challenging position.

Thank you!

Right now I am working 40+ hours a week at job one PLUS 10 hours at the candy shop over the weekends, so I have been a little wrapped up with work. On top of that, my dear boyfriend purchased the Wii U a couple weeks ago when it first came out, so I’ve been pretty busy playing and watching the fun new games! I’m a huge fan of Baby Yoshi in the new Mario Bros Game!

That’s all for now! I’ve got to get some rest to get ready for another full week!
