Inktober drawings

This October, I used Inktober as motivation to draw daily. I was not close to a drawing every day, but I managed a few drawings. All these are physical drawings, most on black sharpie on paper

Starling

StarlingThe cover of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust magazine this month had a stunning photo of a starling. I’ve been looking at it for a few days, thinking how to draw it. This afternoon I decided to go for a black background, the white spots making the bulk of the drawing. Getting the jizz of a starling was tricky, as their eyes are set lower behind their bill than other birds. Ink pen and pencil on my Wacom tablet.
