Inktober 2017 • day 10 • Deadie Bear

Inktober 2017: Day#10
Deadie Bear

Did a similar character last year for a Trick or Treat Bag, (no one purchased the design.)
For this image, I thought of playing around doing sketchy lines. Actually, after finishing the image, I added even more scratchy lines to make have a rougher edge.

Inktober 2017 • day 9 • Vampire's First Flight

Inktober 2017: Day #9
Vampire's First Flight

I wonder how vampires learn how to transform and fly as bats. Is it similar to a baby bird?

Inktober 2017 • day 7 • Helium Ghosts

Inktober 2017: Day #7
Ever wonder what would happen if ghosts played around with helium?
#Inktober Day 6: Ghosts discover helium

Found a harder tipped version of my favorite Tombow brush pen (WS-BH 150).
I find it's better for my heavy hand, allowing me to add more pressure to get the line thickness I want. This allows me to draw thinner lines than if I used the soft tipped version (WS-BS 150). Because of this, it feels more comfortable. Overall, I think it produces a cleaner image, allowing me to add more lines and detail.

UPDATE: Inktober 2017 • day 6 • Pumpkin King

UPDATE: Decided to do a complete inked version of #inktober day 6's sketchy gel pen image of the Pumpkin King.
Updated version of the gel pen sketch using brush pen and markers

Inktober 2017: Day #6
Greetings from the Pumpkin King!
Did a very sketchy drawing this time using two gel pens instead of the brush pen.

Inktober 2017 • day 5 • Zombie Canary

Inktober 2017: Day #5
The not much discussed, but just as dangerous: Zombie Canary!
We worry about big wild beasts becoming zombies; I think I'm more fearful of the little cute things becoming zombies. #watchoutthereisazombiecanarybehindyou
#Inktober Day 5: I thought I smelt a Zombie Canary. I did! I did!

Time for celebrating creativity with daily ink sketches.
