Color Crazy – Black&White quizz about birds:)

This week’s colors in @Kim_Johnson ‘s Color Crazy Challenge are black and white.

When you say “black and white”, I think “Inktober“:) It’s a great challenge for artists. Rules are simple: do one ink drawing every single day of October. Then post it online and hashtag with #inktober. Also there is an official prompt list, that you may follow or you may choose your own topics instead.

I decided to draw birds and follow the official prompt list. Here are some of my works and I want to know, will you identify these birds on my small black-and-white drawings?

        • Well, I’m not a novice in drawing – i studied at the art school. But then i had a long break – when i had a full time job and hadn’t any time for art… What about ink and liners – i can say that i’m a novice in this technique and it was my first Inktober:) And i did pencil sketches – my works couldn’t turn out good without it:)

  1. I got 5 out of 8 – but the three I got wrong were more a result of my lack of knowledge than any lack of skill on your part, Lapka. Beautiful work and a fun quiz 🙂
