Well, we are already nine days into InkTober.  I have learned a lot so far.  I am trying new techniques and combining new mediums.  This drawing was a lot of fun.  I tend to watch a lot of drawing and painting videos over on YouTube and there have been several painters who have made Halloween paintings where the houses were just black silhouettes.  If you have looked around this site at all, you know I love silhouettes. So, I had to put my spin on things.  Since I’m not really painting this month with InkTober, I decided to try this technique with a drawing.  Today’s InkTober is the result.

Personally, I think it came out great.

For this drawing, I used Pigma Micron pens, Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Brush pens, and Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.

Inktober Day 9

A little bit about the story behind the painting:

Wanda is a third generation witch and lives outside a little town called Bennington. She’s a good witch and helps the town people out when they need a spell or potion. Wanda moved to Bennington ten years ago when she left home after an argument with her mother over whether children are potion ingredients or not.  Wanda is a vegetarian and believes all creatures are sacred.
