Inktober 2019, Day 22: Hairstyle

Day 22. Tess rocking a Afro-Goth-ish hairstyle with matching outfit and makeup. She will eventually be wearing a look like this in the comics I’m planning for her.

I wanted to follow the official prompt, “Ghost” but couldn’t get the thing I wanted to do to work during the drawing session before work. It’s the sort of thing I would have to thumbnail out, and I simply don’t have time to do that – if it’s so complex I have to thumbnail it, it’s too complex for me to do in my spare time. So I switched to “Hairstyle” from the Temperature 1 set of A.I.nktober prompts, and to a sketch that I had started earlier.

New toys: because the Faber-Castell PITT brush pen wasn’t sufficiently eraser-proof for me, I bought some Pigma Sakura brush pens to try instead. They’re fun to work with but also no match for my habit of erasing vigorously. In fact, I ended up smearing some of the ink over unused areas of my paper and had to process the image more than I wanted to in order to get that cleaned up. Colors were done digitally in Autodesk Sketchbook on iPad Pro.
