Clock (Inktober 2018 – Day 14)

 

For today’s Inktober drawing, titled Clock, I had a clear idea of what I wanted to draw quite quickly, but it turned out to be more difficult than expected, especially when drawing without tools (no ruler, nor drafting compasses).

This is what my first attempt looked like:

 

Yeah, could be better, much better.

After giving it a few more thoughts and a few attempts, I finally settled down for a look that is much closer to the “real” thing, and all in all, I like it.

I thought about trying to give it more volume or more shading, but I had no time to mess it up and draw it again.

 

 

And now, we’re hitting a new hurdle in my Inktober challenge. See, most of these drawings were done early September, when I had plenty of time to do them. I haven’t really done any new ones since, although, some I’ve redone or inked on the day I posted them (including today’s).

Tomorrow’s will be my last drawing that’s ready in advance. Which means that either I need to draw a bunch in the next couple of days, or I’ll have to draw one every day, and I’m afraid this is a bit unrealistic.

Also, I have to admit that I find the prompts for the second half of the month much less inspiring than the first half.

So we’ll see. Will I succeed posting every day for the next 17 days? Will I have to skip some days? Will I spread my posting into November?
