Ooh I really like the latest one! The shading using the lines gives a really striking effect!

Do the symbols have a meaning? it's possible I'm missing something obvious lol. Or they could just be for aesthetic!

@whatchamacallit thanks Loo! Yeah they do, the star shape is the Star of David, the main symbol of Judaism. It's to a Jew as the cross is to a Christian.

The smaller symbols are letters in Hebrew, spelling out the word "לְקַווֹת", which means "hope".

I'm glad you liked it!

So as you may have noticed I may have forgotten about/given up on inktober halfway through, so ah... oops. But now I'm converting this into a general ink art thread because I got a real brush pen today and I love it too much to sit idly with.

This tree is literally my first drawing ever with the pen, and as you can see, I'm not at all used to the way the ink flows yet, but I'm learning!

Did a random late-night inking because I wanted to get more used to the pen. It's definitely the most sensitive tool I've ever drawn with, but I'm really enjoying it.

Also I had some confusion while drawing the ripples in the water so shush ignore that.

Drew a pretty doggo. I didn't mean for him to look so sad, and he looked better before I added the shading, but still I wuv him.
