Day 31: Ripe For The Pecking

My interpretation for the 31st and final word of Inktober 2019, ‘Ripe’. Some crows perched on a couple of ripe pumpkins.

Day 31 Ripe Ripe For The Pecking

Ripe For The Pecking: It’s a shame it isn’t anymore… happy late Halloween!

For this final entry, I wanted to incorporate another Halloween element as this day corresponds to the day of Halloween. I found out that Pumpkins can be ripe, and as I am contemplating whether or not to release another Birdmas challenge into the fold, I drew some crows to accompany them.

I took my time doing this but didn’t apply any pressure… heck, I failed Inktober anyway, so why the hell not? I practiced some colouring in and tried my best to get into it as I was applying a wash layer by layer. Hopefully it’s effective enough.

…So will Birdmas exist this year? I’m not sure, but one thing is for sure – I want it to.

This entry was drawn using a black fineliner and Inktense on A5 paper.

That’s it! Finally this hell is over! I never thought I’d ever say this about Inktober, but this year’s Inktober has been more of a chore than a pleasure. My decreased motivation, mixed with the horror of the prompt words made this a nightmare! I got a few good things out of it, but not much more than that. Add that to the fact that I failed this year to keep to constraints, and that’s even more frustration. In any case… thanks so much to those that followed this. Here’s hoping my next project isn’t so uncomfortable. Cheers all!

    • How beautiful of you to say. Thanks so much! And you’re right, Inktober this year was incredibly bad! Cheers for agreeing with me.
      Additionally, thanks so much for your message on Twitter. I didn’t think anyone at all would be bothered to look, so it was a lovely

      I happen to think you did amazing work also for Inktober – those drawings on tanned paper are glorious! Cheers!
