Inktober 2017 Week 3

Inktober week 3. Not a lot this week because of some branding work that took up more time than expected. I’ll be posting the results of that some time mid-November. For now, enjoy my little inklings.

Glowing Feather

Falling Light – This drawing raises two important questions in my mind. First, “where does this mental image come from?” Probably Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. I will finish that manga one day, but it will probably take some diagrams and a great many wiki trips. The second question that comes to mind is “why do I hate myself?”. Pro tip – do not try to stipple shade with a ballpoint pen. Turns out the ball in the point of said pen actually needs to roll to dispense ink, which is not something you do in stipple/dot shading. It turned into a lot of little hash marks instead and I guess I like how it turned out but man am I glad I didn’t do this on a larger sheet of paper. Read the rest of this entry

Inktober 2017 Week 2

More of my sorta Inktober drawings. Still not doing quite daily drawings, and not really following the prompts, but I experimented a bit more with ink techniques this week.

What's This

What’s This? – This is one of those drawings that is a cute idea in my mind but may be creepy and unsettling to the outside viewer. I promise it’s a friendly, curious bird-man-skeleton-thing. Read the rest of this entry

Inktober 2017 Week 1

Decided to sort of do Inktober this year. And by “sort of” I mean I made an effort to do more ink drawings this October, but not quite daily due to work and prep for NaNoWriMo (which I will be doing daily writing for). Also using some color here and there because I like to.

Here are some drawings I did during week one:

I made pillows!

I made a couple of pillows for my apartment next year (they’ll live in my dorm room for now).

Basically these came about after I screwed up printing t-shirts in screen printing class. One side came out fine, the other side didn’t, so I cut up the good side and used leftover fabric from another project to make the back, and viola! Pillow!

The back is fleece, and has overlapping panels with an opening so the pillow form can be removed and the case washed. I french seamed the edges so they’re extra sturdy.

All in all, not too bad.

Commission Example – Flame In The Dark

A practice digital painting, which I’ll use as an example of this particular style once I open commissions (hopefully soon).

This one was done entirely in Photoshop with a Wacom Graphire4 tablet (which they don’t actually make anymore).

Turned out pretty well, I think. Not 100% satisfied with the flame, but I like how the general shading and atmosphere looks.
