Snow Chasers – #inktober2019 – Day 4

#inktober19, Arty Pottering Add comments

Hey there!

It’s Day 4 of Inktober, and the prompt is ‘freeze’.

The idea for the below started out as a normal human scene, but I misjudged the height of the ‘adult’ and made the head look weird…so I ran with it (ewww, I mean the idea, not the head…) and ended up with something slightly unorthodox:

Youngest helped me pick out the colours for the beings’ attire, and their skin tone. I used the small PITT brush pen for the silhouettes of the trees, and watercolour paints to add interest.

For those of you who like seeing the artistic process, I reverse engineered it for you below:


I imagine they love winter and so come to our planet whenever it snows – attempting to fit in by wearing human clothes.

Looking at this piece again, I would probably draw snow on the trees and pop another layer of paint on the aliens’ skintone, but I’m quite pleased by how it turned out. I hope you like it, too!

Are you doing Inktober this year? What did you draw for today’s prompt? Let me know in the comments!

Until the sun rises, dear friends: farewell 🙂
