Week 4 has been interesting to say the least. I’ve spent time catching up on commissions now that festival season is over, and so Inktober has been a bit backseat. I feel like I’m already doing lots of artwork, and some of the prompts just don’t do it for me this year. But, I’m still trucking along!
Day 22: Drain
This was a quick doodle because I just didn’t have time to do something bigger. I have lots of big ideas but the day is only so long.
Day 23: Muddy
I made a mud monster!
Day 24: Chop
If you didn’t know, I have always found stories of cannibalism and especially the wendigo fascinating. It may be because I grew up reading lots of arctic exploration novels and accounts. Yes, I realize that’s weird.
Day 25: Prickly
The prickly pear is a common sight here in Georgia. It grows well in the clay we have here where plants that need more nutrients wither. Just break off a piece, set it on the ground, and wait for it to grow.
Day 26: Stretch
Joker again! This time he’s in the beautiful drag disguise from Batman: Dark Prince Charming. I want to draw this more, and I want to eventually cosplay this.
Day 27: Thunder
I play Pokémon Go, and my eevelutions are always my favorites. Jolteon gets the job done, y’all. This was a quick sketch focusing on the thick brush lines then colored using Tombow Dual Brush Pen #055
Day 28: Gift
Joker again, this time threatening Vicki Vale in Tim Burton’s 1989 film Batman starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Still one of my favorite scenes.
So far, so good! I got some extra artwork in this week as well. I want to get back to it, but I don’t yet feel I can count it toward Day 20’s prompt Breakable until it’s finished. Do you have any pieces that are taking longer than anticipated?
