Woooowww, so much beauty here!!! Did you make that fancy border to the awesome map?

Here's mine. I have been practicing a good 3 hours on various aspects. But I haven't made friends with the capital M yet.

See you tomorrow!

@Lucie Y - quite confident swashes! Sometimes I add a swash to the top of an italic capital M to balance out the weight a bit. What a pretty ink - what kind of metallics are you using? Thank you for your kind thoughts about "Dodge" - every day is a little Inktober experiment for me!

This didn't quite go as planned - I expected a slightly bigger reaction from the bleach (I might need to refresh the jar); but drawing with bleach always carries an element of uncertainty.

@Lucie Y
No, the border is from a book of borders I have. Seemed to fit the map in style.

Wow, I had no idea you were using bleach! How cool. You really captured that old crumpled map feel.

My metallic are the amazing sparkling watercolors by Lisilinka (a German artisan and artist). Her metallic colors are incredible and I really can't imagine using anything else now. I have @oliveleafcalli to thank for introducing me to these through her IG :)
