Inktober Day 13: Roof - The Sky is our Roof ⭐ . . . 🤓 📖 : Stars don’t twinkle. They appear to twinkle (“scintillate”), especially when they are near the horizon. One star, Sirius, twinkles, sparkles and flashes so much at times that people often report it as a UFO. But in fact, the twinkling is not a property of the stars, but of Earth’s turbulent atmosphere. As the light from a star passes through the atmosphere it must pass through many layers of rapidly differing density. This has the effect of deflecting the light slightly as it were a ball in a pinball machine. The light eventually gets to your eyes, but every deflection causes it to change slightly in colour and intensity. The result is “twinkling.” Above the Earth’s atmosphere, stars do not twinkle. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday13 #day13prompt #stargazing #roof #astrolove #star #⭐ #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #retro #drawings #digitalartistoninstagram

Inktober Day 11: Sour - A Sourpuss in a Sweet and Sour Bowl . . . 🤓 📖 : Cats have a special sense receptor, called the Jacobson’s organ, which is located on the roof of the mouth. This organ use is to “taste-smell” aromas around them (from food to pheromones). With this setup, odours are inhaled to the cat’s tongue, and the tongue is then used to transfer scents to the roof of the mouth. This means that cats may be able to “taste” the essence of flavours and scents in a way that we do not have the capacity to experience. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday11 #day11prompt #cat #sweetandsour #sour #catstagram #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #retro #drawings #digitalartist

Inktober Day 9: Pressure - F-Air Pressure . . . 🤓 📖 : Scuba divers have to contend with pressure changes as they dive deeper, their concerns go into coming back to the surface without getting decompression sickness, which is why they return to the surface carefully. For astronauts in space, it’s the exact opposite. Their chances of getting DCS are when they step out of the station into space, going from normal cabin pressure into a low atmospheric pressure environment. To help astronauts acclimate, they would need to “pre-breathe” pure oxygen to rid their bodies of nitrogen. . . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday9 #day9prompt #spaceart #astronaut #scubadiver #diver #pressure #space #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital

Inktober Day 8: Watch - Watching Time Go By . . . 🤓 📖 : La Chaux-de-Fonds, the city of watchmakers, sits in the heart of the Swiss Watch Valley, which is home to the most legendary luxury watch brands (Breitling, Patek Philippe, Rolex, TAG Heuer, Chopard, Baume & Mercier and many others). Like a chessboard, it features wide streets and buildings built with enough space in between to not cast shadows onto each other. Everything in the town is designed to exploit the daylight, what used to be the most important utensil of all watchmakers. The urban landscape is dominated by the large and bright windows of the watchmakers’ workshops and the many watch factories. This exceptional setting has prompted UNESCO to put La Chaux-de-Fonds on the world heritage list in 2009. [Special thanks to @micolkokeshi for sending me an amazingly detailed voice note on the history of watches and the story of La Chaux-de-Fonds because I didn’t know what to draw. The drawing ended up being about something else but I loved the concept of a city with no shadows x] . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday8 #day8prompt #watch #pocketwatch #time #tiktokmf #chauxdefond #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator

Inktober Day 7: Fan - Princess Iron Fan, from Journey To The West . . . 🤓 📖 : Princess Iron Fan is a beautiful demoness and the most popular villain in the 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West (the novel that inspired Dragon Ball). She possessed the magical Banana Leaf Fan, that can create giant whirlwinds which are capable of extinguishing the fire on the Flaming Mountains. She used this ability to extort favours from the nearby residents. Journey to the West is the first Chinese feature-length cartoon, you can find a de-noised and stabilised version with subtitles on youtube if you don’t mind it being a little pixelated. It has some nice rotoscoped scenes. Considering the times, the animations are incredible, so fluid. If you’re interested in the history of animation like me, you should def check it out x . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday7 #day7prompt #fan #princessironfan #journeytothewest #chinesefolklore #demoness #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #chineseaesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital

Inktober Day 6: Spirit - A Séance. I can easily imagine my cats summoning me from the afterlife for snacks 😺👻 . . . 🤓 📖 : The Ouija board came straight out of the American 19th century obsession with spiritualism, the belief that the dead are able to communicate with the living. Spiritualism, which had been around for years in Europe, hit America hard. Communicating with the dead was common, it wasn’t seen as bizarre or weird - people wouldn’t have seen anything wrong with going on a séance on a Saturday night and then at church on Sunday morning. It’s hard to imagine that now, we look at that board and think, ‘Why are you opening the gates of hell?’ (lol) But opening the gates of hell wasn’t on anyone’s mind at the Kennard Novelty Company, the first producers of the Ouija board; in fact, they were mostly looking to open Americans’ wallets. The first patent offers no explanation as to how the device works, just assert that it does. That ambiguity and mystery was part of a marketing effort - and it paid off, it was a money-maker. By 1892, they went from one factory in Baltimore to two in Baltimore, two in New York, two in Chicago and one in London. It’s quite logical that the board would find its greatest popularity in uncertain times, when people hold fast to belief and look for answers from just about anywhere, especially cheap, DIY oracles. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday6 #day6prompt #cat #seance #catart #catlover #ouija #ouijaboard #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #witchyaesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital

Inktober Day 5: Raven - The Morrígan . . . 🤓 📖 : The name ‘Morrígan’ roughly translates to ‘The Phantom Queen’. She is primarily known as the Goddess of war in Irish mythology and described as being able to predict the death of warriors in battle, which she used to influence the outcome of war. According to legend, she delivered this message after she appeared as a raven or a crow and flew overhead during a war. It’s said that her appearance would either terrify those fighting or inspire them to fight for their life. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday5 #day5prompt #raven #morrigan #legends #irishfolk #morrighan #goddess #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #drawings #digitalartist

Inktober Day 4: Knot - A Gordian Knot . . . 🤓 📖 : The Gordian knot symbolises a difficult, almost impossible problem to solve. According to legend, when Gordius became king of Phrygia, he dedicated his chariot to Zeus and fastened it to a pole with the Gordian knot. Although the knot was supposedly impossible to unravel, an oracle predicted that it would be untied by the future king of Asia. Many men came to Gordium to try to undo it, they all failed until the Greek conqueror Alexander the Great visited the city in 333 B.C. After searching unsuccessfully for the hidden ends of the Gordian knot, Alexander became impatient. In an unexpected move, he took out his sword and cut through the knot. Alexander then went on to conquer Asia, thus fulfilling the oracle's prophecy. Alexander's solution to the problem led to the saying "cutting the Gordian knot”, solving a complicated problem through bold action. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday4 #day4prompt #knot #gordianknot #legends #sword #snake #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #retro #drawings #digitalartist

Inktober Day 2: Suit - Suit of Cards / Suit of Armour . . . 🤓 📖 : The Suit of Wands, which corresponds to Clubs in a deck of playing cards, is associated with inspiration, determination, strength, intuition, creativity, ambition, expansion and original thought. While the Page of Wands marks the initial spark of a new idea, the Knight of Wands (my favourite tarot knight, also called ‘the questing knight’) shows the actual pursuit of it. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, it symbolises energy, passion, motivation, enthusiasm, travel and inspired action. It’s associated with the element of fire and if picked in a yes/no question, is a big fat YES. Just. Do. It. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday2 #day2prompt #tarot #tarotcards #tarotreading #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #aesthetic #witchyaesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #retro #drawings #digitalartist

Inktober Day 1: Crystal - A Crystal Ball . . . 🤓 📖 : Crystal gazing has been practised since the Iron Age, pretty much all over the world, and became an extremely popular pastime during the Victorian era. Crystal-gazers would stare deeply into the stone, falling into a meditative trance that would allow the subconscious to open and reveal secrets of the past, present, or future. This act of gazing into a reflective or translucent surface to get prophetic insight came to be known as scrying, and while it's a gross-sounding word to say out loud, the practice can be used on literally anything, including blood, water, mirrors, and even oily fingernails. . . . . . #️⃣ : #annajinks #inktober #inktober2021 #inktoberday1 #day1prompt #crystalball #clairvoyant #vision #illustration #illustratrice #illustrationhowl #drawing #digitalart #painting #arte #artistsoninstagram #witchyaesthetic #draw #instaart #procreate #illustrator #sketchbook #digitalillustration #digital #digitaldrawing #retro #drawings #digitalartist
