Ornament (Inktober 2019 – Seventeen)

Today, I didn’t think twice about what to draw for today’s Inktober piece., I picked a Christmas ornament. Well, actually, I kinda toyed with the idea of drawing a Japanese Mon, it’s not exactly an ornament. I’ll see if one could fit another prompt later this month – otherwise, it could be a good idea to give it a try anyway one of those days.

So, a Christmas ornament it is:

And I decided to use the occasion to try shading a different way from the usual (i.e. not through hatching).

First, I did some shading with pencils (and with the help of a couple of Youtube tutorials):

And then, instead of the usual hatching with my regular pens, I tried with gray and black ink:

Hmmm… It could be better, much much better.

I think I will go back to hatching.

We’ll see what tomorrow brings us.
