Interlude.Songtress: INKTOBER 2016

For 2016, I took up the challenge of creating an ink drawing per day for October. With my challenge, I took it a step further - once an ink drawing was completed, I digitally added color to either match the tone of that day's topic or the lyrics in which i portrayed.

This project is an extension of a larger project called Interlude.Songtress, where I would draw a female singer of the African Diaspora and choose a song that I'm familiar with to depict its lyrics with hand-drawn type. Once it's inked and uploaded, I avoid using skin tones with bright colors, contrasting backgrounds, and sometimes the use of halftones as textures.
