Not the movie starring Marilyn Monroe. I recently went to Niagara Falls with my bestie, and had a grand old time. We won some cash at the casino, walked so much our legs still ache, bought delicious fudge, and ended the day at the Coca-Cola store with ice cream floats. Sadly the floats were in plastic cups, not these magnificent glasses.
Also I’m sorry for the terrible photo quality here, I’m not sure what’s going on with my camera these days, or perhaps I’ve just forgotten how to get the best out of it.
See below for a couple of photos from my adventure.

A small oasis we found
I’m still playing around with this kind of drawing, the slapping down of colour to create the form then going in after to add details. I’m really enjoying it so far, as I feel I can be messier in my initial approach, and it still comes out nice.
I’m especially fond of how her nose came out. I almost always seem to get the same looking nose, but this time it looks distinctive!

She’s ready and waiting for the shit to hit the fan, also I hate how Instagram cuts off long skinny drawings.

I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas for the remaining inktobers, and as a result am churning out stuff I’m not too happy with. Also I realize her ankles are abnormally small.

I really needed something colourful for today.

Buffalo check plaid is very difficult to draw/paint. Maybe I just need to practise it more. She is wearing an outfit I own though. Most of the ladies I draw have a similar fashion aesthetic to me though.

Simple, quick and clean.
