Got my first artsnacks box. This month it included a double-tipped Winsor & Newton ProMarker (the blue), a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen, a ZIG Posterman waterproof marker (orange), which leaves a mark like wet chalk, and a tiny sample of Kraft Stonehenge paper.

The markers apparently work on ceramic, glass, wood, etc but I haven’t had occasion to try them on that yet. The paper’s surface seems like it’ll work well with oil pastels so expect to see some mini drawings soon. The Winsor pen is much bluer than the brown paper leaves it; the spots where the marker goes over white ink show the blue to better effect; I expect I’ll get fair use of that drawing in edging on some mirrors.

For the artsnacks challenge (use all the items in the box in one art piece) I chose to speed-draw my husband.

One of the side things I do is sell backgrounds on Dreamstime. I liked this inktober sketch so much I figured I'd give it a go too, and it was approved this morning.
I've had an account here for awhile, meaning to post art to it, but I somehow never got around to it. Today after finishing my daily 20 min practice sketch, I decided it was time. I've got some concept art banging around for a game, I need to do character studies for an upcoming animation, my practice sketches...
