Another week of Inktober bites the dust and I’m still chugging along right on track. 🙂 This month’s art challenge has been incredibly inspiring for me. I am drawing more than I have in a long time and a large reason for that was always a “lack of time”. This just shows that with some major determination and motivation, I can manage to make more time for the things I love. It’s been a great experience so far. ❤
Day 15: The daily prompt was “LEGEND” and I was not up for anything too ambitious since I was still feeling sick. I originally wanted to do a legendary creature and wound up doing Beefsquatch (Bob’s Burgers) which is sorta kinda maybe legend-ish, right? 😛
Day 16: The daily prompt was “WILD” and I went with Max from Where the Wild Things Are.
Day 17: The daily prompt was “ORNAMENT” and I wanted to make a Halloween-themed ornament.
Day 18: The daily prompt was “MISFIT” and my brain went straight to the band The Misfits. I don’t usually draw see-through things like glass so this was an ambitious piece of fan art for me to work on, but I’m pleased with how it came out. 🙂
Day 19: The daily prompt was “SLING” and what a random prompt that was! I wasn’t sure where this piece was going to end up when I started it but I’m happy with the end result.
Day 20: The daily prompt was “TREAD” and it instantly brought to mind the saying “tread carefully”.
Day 21: The daily prompt was “TREASURE” and my original intent was to make a pirate in this pose but for some reason once I drew the face it just screamed Catwoman to me and I went with it. 🙂
So, that’s that for this week. 🙂 I’m determined to keep my momentum with Inktober and finish strong. How’s your October been so far? What’s everyone being for Halloween this year? If we’re buddies over on Instagram you’ve probably already seen the look Mr. Moth and I are rocking this year, but I’ll do a post here soon with our costumes and recent shenanigans we’ve been up to.
Hello, it’s your resident sick girl here, living her best couch potato life with her trusted fuzzy minion cohort by her side, and we’ve got lots of new Inktober pieces for ya. A whole week’s worth, in fact!
Day 8: The daily prompt was “FRAIL” and I took my inspiration from old desiccated mummy faces. I then kind of took it into a more living dead sort of direction and ended up with this:
Day 9: The daily prompt was “SWING” and chose to do a little sketchbook quickie of my girl, Batwoman (Bombshells batter style, of course!) 😉
Day 10: The daily prompt was “PATTERN” and I was completely and utterly stumped on this one. I decided to just draw some quick little jack o’lanterns in a pattern of sizes (tall-short-tall-short). Hey, they can’t all be winners, right? 😛
Day 11: The daily prompt was “SNOW” and at this point I really wanted to up my Inktober game. I took inspiration from the legends of the wendigo since they’re associated with winter/snow.
Day 12: The daily prompt was “DRAGON” and I was feeling sick as a dog at this point, so I *technically* posted this the morning of Day 13, but oh, well. I did start it on the 12th, but NyQuil landed me in bed earlier than I would have intended.
Day 13: The daily prompt was “ASH” and I embraced my sickly current state and drew a sickly woman covered in ash.
Day 14: The daily prompt was “OVERGROWN” and I went with a wild forest nymph with overgrown, wild red hair and branches growing out of her head because why the hell not?? 😉
Well, that’s this week’s Inktober installment from yours truly. I hope you guys have been enjoying your October so far. There’s plenty of Halloween fun still to be had this month. What fun autumn hijinks have you been up to? What creative stuff are you working on? 🙂
Phew! It has been a busy week. Thankfully I was still able to squeeze in just enough drawing time to complete the first seven days of Inktober. 🙂 Some of the daily prompts were harder than others and some took a few tries to get the look I was going for, but it feels good to have stayed on track so far. I’ve been posting daily over on Instagram but I wanted to share a roundup of my first seven entries with you guys here on the blog. ❤
Day 1: The daily prompt was “RING” and I decided to go with the kind of rings you would see if you were to cut into a tree as my inspiration, rather than actual jewelry.
Day 2: The daily prompt was “MINDLESS” and I just decided to go with a cute little zombie dude. This one was a quick but doing the blood was fun.
Day 3: The daily prompt was “BAIT” and I jumped at the opportunity to draw an angler fish because they’re badass and interesting, so why not?
Day 4: The daily prompt was “FREEZE” and I decided to draw a guy being pulled down beneath the ice by a skeleton woman. I wanted to go with muted color accents for the “freeze” prompt and I’m pretty happy with how they came out. 🙂 I wish I would have added some bubbles, but it’s never too late to go back in later and add them.
Day 5: The daily prompt was “BUILD” and I made a mad scientist building her own creation. This one was pretty fun since this mad scientist is a character I used to draw a long time ago and wanted to make a comic about.
Day 6: The daily prompt was “HUSKY” and I just drew a husky. Wasn’t really feeling this one, but I still got it done.
Day 7: The daily prompt was “ENCHANTED” and I had a lot more fun with this one, drawing a whimsical fairy moth lady. I also really enjoyed adding some brassy, silver and gold with my new metallic sharpies. This one was such a delight to draw that I’m sure I’ll be drawing her again at some point. I may even utilize her to jazz up the blog a little. 😉
I hope you guys enjoyed the drawings and I look forward to sharing my next batch in a week. Are any of you participating in Inktober or doing any other fun challenges this month? 🙂
