Day #23: Double Challenge #Drawlloweentober2018   

> #Inktober  Muddy

> #MabsDrawlloweenClub  Monster

Day #23 Today I had fun creating this drawing! I had no much time and it was late, I had to come up with a technique that will create something quickly without thinking too much and I wanted to skip the pencil sketch to create something uniquely spontaneous. I used this technique other times and I love it always the outcome is something unique! As you can see my drawing feature a Monster Warrior wearing an armor, you see him from the back as he is standing in the muddy water. Well to obtain my character I have first splashed ink wash and watercolor letting them flowing in the wet paper and let it dry. When looking at the dry paper I could see clearly the figure in the muddy water. I got my pen and started inking around the shape. I had fun,  is amazing how my monster warrior slowly took form and became alive!
