Inktober #4 well under my deadline. It being Sunday I guess I was feeling a bit intellectually lazy. I have drawn similar creatures as this before. I say intellectually lazy because it still took me about 3 hours to do all the cross-hatching.
I am predicting my drawings for the week might get smaller and perhaps simpler. But you never know.
Again, I plan on coloring this one in later. The yellow in the eyes comes courtesy of Photoshop. I can't help myself, sometimes.
So here's the deal. It's Inktober. Artists from all over are challenged to do one pen and ink drawing a day for the month of October. I needed something to get my pen moving and this came along, well, at the right time.
Yesterday I had my first of two eye surgeries. I had the lens in my left eye replaced with a lens implant due to cataracts. The procedure took about 15-20 minutes and I was awake the whole time. The surgery was a success and I am having the same surgery on the right eye on Oct 21st.
Throughout the day today my vision in my left eye is getting better. The doctor told me there would be at least a couple days of fogginess due to swelling. I have 3 different eyedrops to take at various times of the day.
I could hardly wait to start drawing. Yesterday I couldn't see well enough to draw, read or even watch TV. Today though has been much better.
So this is my first drawing post-op. More bounty from last Sunday's farmer's market. When I first saw them I thought they were green tomatoes, but no, the vendor assured me they are thai eggplant. They will be in a stir fry in the next day or so. I'm thinking a yellow curry on noodles. Maybe I should draw that when I make it...
