Inktober 2020 Day 1: Fish

Inktober Day 1: Fish
First day of Inktober and I’m already behind…but here we go! I’ve never done Inktober before, but I’ve been meaning to do it for a while now and now I’m finally giving it a shot.

The theme of day one was fish, so I drew a betta. I’m not sure how I feel about this piece. I like the fins and tail, but the scales and shading are honestly kind of sloppy. But I’ve hardly worked with pen before, and not in a long time either. By the end of this I’m sure I’ll be much better.

Gift for Zam

Here’s a birthday gift for one of my good friends online! She has accounts on DeviantArt, YouTube, and Instagram, but I’ll link her Scratch profile because that’s where she’s most active. She’s super talented and one of the nicest people I’ve met on the site, so I’d highly recommend following her.

Whew! This piece took forever, but that’s not too much of a surprise–it’s been weeks since I last picked up a pencil, let alone drew anything! And it’s been even longer since I made any digital art. It feels good to draw again, though! I’m pretty happy with how this turned out, too. I tried a few new techniques, played around with some brushes, and overall just had a lot of fun making this piece.
