|#Inktober2018 - #5|
Back in 2006, I was gifted with a large batch of pictures
taken by a very talented man who went on a photo safari in Africa
with his family and his new camera.
This is one of his photographs; the reference I used for Inktober #5.
I loved the gesture of the little guy,
so I cropped the photo and flipped the image.
The elephant was then lightly drawn in pencil.
After the outline was smoothed out,
I drew in some directional lines as guides,
and began inking.
After inking, all pencil marks were erased.
Here's the finished silhouette cropped without the reference pen.
The same method was used with the following drawings,
although I bet you could easily use the free animal silhouettes
on Pixabay to produce nice pieces
or just draw some from your imagination, of course.

"October is crisp days and cool nights,
a time to curl up around the dancing flames
and sink into a good book."
Sounds like a plan for this evening.
Hope to see you in a few days.
