GUIDE FOR INK DRAWING CHALLENGE: DAY 4 & 5

Updated: May 21


Day 4: “Halloween Totem”

I created a history of each day of my Inktober 2019 challenge. This article documents MY creative choices, and tools and materials used. The purpose is to guide future participants toward success.


Main Idea

A Totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe. The stacking of Halloween symbols results in a Halloween Totem.


Sub Ideas

I do not like gruesome objects, so the ghost is as gruesome as I get. The costumed persons are the traditional pirate and princess. My bias because sons and grandchildren liked to dress as pirates and princesses. I tried to keep lines curvy and waving to generate interest and beauty.


Materials Used

Canson Bristol vellum paper,100 lb. Sakura Pigma FB permanent (no bleeding) fine point felt tip pen. If you do not keep pressure on pen consistent, thickness and value of line is impacted. Low difficulty.
