Inktober 2016

Here are my drawings for Inktober 2016!
I chose couples as my theme this year. I was supposed to draw 31 images, but as usual I never really got that far.

The drawings were created with Deleter pens, and I used a small Moleskine notebook this time. It wasn’t ideal for drawing, as the ink bled through on several pages. I’ll have to think of something new next year.

Still, it is a fun exercise. Maybe I’ll make it to 31 next year.

Skyfall: Q fanart

I tried to draw Q from the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.

So I copied a picture with the grid method. But now I wonder: Since it is a copy, it doesn’t actually reflect my skill, does it? Since I am sure I couldn’t have done this without the grid, does this have any worth? (Even now it does not look exactly like the reference photo…)
Will I learn anything from this or is this more or less the same kind of cheating as as tracing? I’m really not sure…
