#Inktober – Something for the Connoisseurs

 

Just some Poe fangirling.

I actually don’t hate this one. Yet. I¬†tried, in my way, to recreate those old storybook illustrations. Maybe it needs more contrast. Maybe I need to stop looking at it.

And just for the record, here is my sketch, which I liked so well I was nervous to ink it. I could have gone in and darkened with a pencil, but that would have been cheating. It’s Inktober.

I KNOW I don’t have to tell you what it’s from.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Inktober: The Fiery Pits of Utopia

 

A friend asked me to illustrate her kid’s statement: “I’m going to start a comic strip called the Fiery Pits of Utopia. In the first episode, a nice devil guy is going to buy a doughnut.”

It’s just too perfect. Hell doesn’t get any fresher than this.

Inktober – Painted Toenails

 

She’s just painted her toenails and she likes the way they look.

Autocorrect said, “Painting Tonsils.” I hate letting autocorrect down. Maybe the next one should be that.

I haven’t drawn with real ink in so long, I forgot how tricky it is. I accidentally blooped a big drop on her hair! Fortunately I have many tricks up my sleeve now, and was able to hide it.

I don’t like this drawing very much. I think that’s why I keep blathering about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Couple’s Portrait

 

My sister-in-law asked me for a comic style portrait of her and my brother, which I was happy to attempt… well, it maxed out my skills, so I should be happy with the result. Hehe. In retrospect I think I tried TOO hard! I should have been looser about it. They both look happy, and that’s what’s most important. Any further comment I can make is just me telling my brain to shut up already. Shut shut up it’s fine shut up.
