Inktober 2020 #10: Hope

I have suddenly started to really struggle with the prompts and I’m not sure why, so I’m blaming 2020 in total. I was about to give up on Hope, today’s prompt, and tried just putting down the word to see what would happen. Gum Gum People followed, and so it is that they are attaching balloons to hope, to try to lift it out of the mire (which is probably 2020). There are a few things off on the drawing that I may go back and fix–I don’t like how the balloons don’t really look attached, for one, and the leftmost balloon has its reflective part out of line with the others, but we’ll see. At this point I’m just satisfied to get anything out.

I used three ink brushes in Procreate for this, continuing to expand my repertoire:

  • Studio pen (my go to, used for the Gum Gum People and balloons)
  • Brush pen (used for the letters)
  • Dry ink (used for the mire the letters are sinking into and the shading on the letters)
