Inktober Catch-Up

I have in fact been working on Inktober--I've just been bad about posting. So now, without further ado, Inktober sketches for the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th.

Just a swan

Slightly inspired by the game Dixit

The Creeping Dark

And Mr. Elephant

Inktober 15 and 16

Here are sketches 15 and 16. The first is of an evil wicker basket. The second is the brainchild of my ten year old brother who conceived a talk show entitled "Conspiracy Today." This is the host.

Wicked wicker . . . 

"And remember--our conspiracies will be with you today, and, tomorrow!"

Inktober 13

Today's Inktober was inspired by the WIP novel of a friend.

"The mighty seer spread the wings of his cloak
 and screamed the intonation of the crow to the heavens,
 talons lengthening and feathered robe melting 
as he took on the visage of a terrible bird of prey."
~ The Unwaking World

Inktober #12

The twelfth sketch for Inktober! I must say, I think this is definitely my favorite so far. It was definitely a lot of fun to do, and I may try it again in pencil in my much larger sketchbook.

"Thus bemourned the Geatish folk their master's fall, comrades of his hearth, 
crying that he was ever of the kings of earth of men most generous and to men most gracious, 
to his people most tender and for praise most eager." 
~ Tolkien's translation of Beowulf, lines 2662-2665

Inktober 11

The dreaded Adirondack Grizzbee.

Beware the jaws, the claws, AND the stinger.

Inktober 9 and 10

Playing catch-up on posting these . . . hopefully 11 will be up later tonight.

A particularly happy salesman of masks.

"Sheeps" is both a singular and plural noun in the land of Catan.

Inktober 8

Today's sketch is of a clocktower--specifically the Clocktower from my 2011/2013 NaNoWriMo novel Minyrva.

". . . So lieu of sun, moon, or stars, the Clocktower counted. Every hour it tolled, telling all in the city the hour. But every twelve hours–at six–the Cadence sounded out throughout the City."

Inktober 6 and 7

I did do a sketch yesterday, I just didn't get around to posting it. Here it is along with today's.

The 6th

And 7th

Inktober 5!

Today happens to be my younger brother's birthday, so this Inktober sketch is dedicated to him. He happens to be a real life technomancer, which is pretty cool. I'm not entirely sure what it is he does with his technomancy most of the time, but I swear it's magic.

Respect the technomancer.

Intober #4

Latest Inktober. In this one I was experimenting with fast, fluid linework, trying to capture the image more gesturally than literally.

Inktober Begins!

First two posts up for Inktober! These are some brainstorming ideas for a possible novel setting. Enjoy!

The first . . . 

. . . And the second.


So, I'm a little late to the party, but I'm hoping to pull of Inktober this year. I tried last year, and I'm pretty sure I got exactly halfway through the month. This year I hope to churn out all 31 pieces, even if some of them are super simplistic and basic. So stand by for a post later today, hopefully with art for the 1st and 2nd of October.
