Inktober 2018 – Sketch Selection 13 and 14

The Inktober prompts for these were “Whale” and “Flowing”. The vagueness of the terms allowed for any kind of interpretation. I utilised different marking techniques for each of these images but the designs follow a similar footprint. The eye is drawn from the upper left corner into the page and down for both.  The downward movement is emphasised through the descending verticals of the “whale tails” in the upper drawing. For the lower drawing the downward movement is created through the use of elongated “ribbons” that serve to direct the gaze. Even though the imagery and marks chosen are different they find a common ground in the compositional movement.

  1. I think Inktober is one of those things that operates on a very personal basis. Success is found wholey in the act of participation. Looking over your posted work (Inktober included) I see you experimenting with different materials, styles, and disciplines. That all works to strengthen our skill sets in very significant ways!
