Way behind and working on catching up…Sadly, sometimes adulting takes all my time. For Day 7 Fan I wanted to do something a little different than your conventional fan. What do you think too much of a stretch or nailed it? #Inktober, #Fan, #chicken, #ink, #art, #drawing, #feathers, #aleciagoodman

A Goddess Within

I love the spirit my daughter has especially when she’s Wonder Woman. It’s the one costume that has to be replaced as she grows. Definitely a warrior princess. #Inktober2021, #Inktober, #spirit, #wonderwoman, #costume, #ink, #art, #drawing, #aleciagoodman,

Have to Fly

Still catching up…I kept my eye on all the scavengers in parking lots recently. They are incredibly smart and can even hold grudges. They are known in myth and lore throughout the ages. Loved getting to draw another one. #Inktober202, #ink, #art, #raven, #feather, #fly, #aleciagoodman

Hairy Truths

I’m behind, but working to catch up. Its not always easy to find the time. So don’t be surprised if I post more than one a day. My son told me that this doesn’t really represent “knot.” If you know how to braid I think it definitely does. I once taught myself to French braid my hair by sitting in front of the mirror while my family was driving to Colorado. Later I figured out how to braid a dear friend’s hair before her surgery. Now I get to play with my daughter’s hair and find clever ways to tie it up in knots out of her face. #Inktober, #Inktober2021, #knot, #woman, #ink, #drawing, #art, #aleciagoodman, #hair

Beauty in Darkness

A day late … Within the darkness of the vessel lies a beauty both good and bad. #Inktober2021, #vessel, #art, #aleciagoodman, #ink, #woman, #butterfly, #moth, #darkness

Change of Heart

I ran with an old favorite, the Queen of Hearts. The idea of her being devious just made sense and the worn card further pushes that idea. #Inktober2021, #aleciagoodman, #suit, #ink, #art, #drawing, #Queen, #queen of hearts, #card,

Contrasting Ideas

It’s the first day and I already started overdoing it. I do like the hard and soft contrasts…especially the human softness and the hard crystalline forms. Her profile is amazing, makes me think of characters from the show “Face-off” or even “Doctor Who.” What would you like to see this time around? #Inktober2021, #art, #crystal, #humanoid, #fantasy, #ink, #sci-fi, #drawing

Inktober Begins

As with every year I try to post a drawing every day. I can’t always keep up, so we’ll see what my creativity dreams up and hopefully in a timely manner. Wish me luck. If you’d like to join in here are the rules … https://inktober.com/rules

Finding the Sun

I participate in themed exchanges with a small group of friends. I drew a friend and client this last time. She loves plants and I realized that the sunflower sketch I had done for a possible drawing for my daughter was perfect for her. What is your favorite flower?

Saying Goodbye to Chubby Cheeks

It’s hard saying goodbye to these adorable chubby cheeks and fur baby. I loved getting to work on these two and seeing them emerge from the blank canvas. I enjoyed talking with the client and sending them updates too. Now I can’t wait to hear the reaction when this drawing is gifted. Maybe I should do a couple of portraits of my own two as toddlers … back to editing for a bit. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #pet, #aleciagoodman
