Inktober 2016/2017 - Day 5: SAD

Today's post is going to be really short and rushed.  Managed to finish my drawing for Inktober today but I left myself hardly any time to talk about it!  Oh well, hopefully the photos really will be worth a thousand words and they can do most of the talking for me :3

Inktober Prompts Calendar

The prompt for the 5th was quite simple: SAD.  Since I didn't give myself much time to work on my response today, I just drew the first thing that came to mind, a sad person!

Pencil sketch to start.
Main lines inked with nib pen and brush pen.
Final ink added with brushes and Copic Multiliner.

This was actually a really straightforward drawing for me.  I feel like I keep saying this recently but I was pretty much able to draw exactly what I had in mind without any trouble.  Perhaps it helped that I didn't have anything too specific visualized for this one.  The hands were the main focus, the rest just needed to be filled in.  I'm pretty pleased with the deep expression I was able to bring to the face, especially since it's mostly covered up.

Final SAD Drawing

How are you doing with Inktober so far?  Keeping up?  We're not even done with the first week and it's already been a bit of a struggle to make sure I stay on task and give myself the time to complete each prompt.  That sounds bad but means that this challenge is good practice for time management and introspection!
