Inktober Day 24 BLIND ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Mole from The Wind in The Willows

I remember getting the book from my nan, loved the drawings and the stories. Wasnโ€™t too keen on the toad and badger as I recall.

The ink outline was drawn with a Pentel brushpen. Iโ€™ve made a few advances with this brush doing the daily challenges, gained a bit more control I think (hope)

The mole with the green jacket is my version…

My inked lines before adding the watercolour.

And the original from the book, what do you think? ย Pretty close huh ? ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Thank you Lisa, I copied the original drawing from the book so that sweet little face wasn’t my own design. Perhaps whenever we copy something (manually drawing that is) we unavoidably add a little bit of ourselves to the representation though…

  1. I’ve got an apology folks – I mistakenly posted up the picture of the original one instead of mine, I was including it as a reference of the original but got mixed up when writing the blog post.

    It seems my version of it was so close that I’d forgotten the fact I’d given him a green jacket instead of the red one in the book !!

    Sincerest apologies, I’ve only just noticed. Obviously I could’ve steathily changed it in the background and not said anything but that’s not how I do things, if I use references then I’ll always state them up-front.

    Thanks guys,

    Steve
