Inktober Day 28: Halloneon

My interpretation for the 28th word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Neon’. A neon coloured zombie! (I bet you can tell I’m running out of ideas now can’t you…?)

Hello all… sorry for yet another late post… On top of everything else, I’m now getting the touch of an Autumnal flu-ish bug… Wonderful! But I’m plodding on and am sure it’ll pass.

Day 28 Neon Halloneon

Halloneon: Happy Halloneon! Muahaha.

Anyway, on to the more relevant agenda now – this entry. I had no idea how I’d even fulfil this word… until I realised that I could use my “if all fails, turn to Halloween” cheating method. So I decided to draw a zombie since they’re pretty popular Halloween related characters, but also, their skin colour can be strange looking and that sparked an idea. Of course, I could have gone with the very obvious Jack O Lantern glowing pumpkin, but I decided it’s best to play with my initial concept.

I called this entry “Halloneon”, a mixture of “Halloween” and the prompt word “Neon”. Overall, I had fun doing this, but I had to stop several times and come back to it… as a result, I became too fatigued to upload it until today.

This was done using many different inks, but predominantly acrylic ink as a base. I hope you like it. Have a nice fright! Muahahaha. 🎃

Inktober Day 27: Remember Me?

My interpretation for the 27th word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Blaster’. The hunting woman from my very 1st entry holding a ‘blaster’ (gun).

Hello all! Firstly, I loved doing this entry. There are a couple of unintended errors I had to correct which was annoying… and I also slightly regret using hints of colour in this piece, but overall, I really had fun with this one.

Day 27 Blaster Remember Me

Remember Me?: You’re bound to sooner or later…

As soon as I saw the word “Blaster” I thought, what better than to bring back the same woman from “Day 1 Hunting” as she held a gun in that entry…? Enough said, there was nothing more to it. As soon as I got the time to do so, I got straight to work.

The text is rather ironic and plays on whether or not anyone remembers who she is since not everyone has seen my very 1st entry, and those who have are likely to forget it at this stage. Not everyone will know this character because of that…. (Sorry for the strange gap in text arrangement by the way, I tried to leave room for my logo, but it didn’t quite work… I ended up adding my logo in a corner instead).

But they will remember her now! After all, who doesn’t remember having a gun pointed at their face? 😂

For translation and clarity the text says “Oh, what’s that? You don’t REMEMBER ME? Well… You will Now!”

This was done using black, sepia, and sanguine coloured liners and brush pens. Again, in hindsight, I’m not sure it was wise to include colour, but I accept the way things are anyway. Hope you enjoy, all! Thanks for stopping by!

Inktober Day 26: Cooler Than Cotton

My interpretation for the 26th word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Cotton’. A cartoon drawing of a sheep with a stem of cotton in it’s mouth, and a cotton-top monkey.

Yes… as promised, I’ve played it safe today with something more familiar and simple. This is a fun WYSIWYG drawing that includes a few cotton related devices to match the prompt, two of which are animals (A Sheep [Left] relating to wool which is close to cotton, and a species of monkey known as a “Cotton-Top Tamarin” [Right]) the third device is an actual cotton plant stem in the sheep’s mouth.

Day 26 Cotton Cooler than Cotton

Cooler than Cotton: Damn right.

…So why did I name this piece “Cooler than Cotton”? Because of the way the animals are of course… they’re just cool and casual, and why not, hm? 😉

I did the above entry using a single Faber Castell PITT black brush pen. On an added note, apart from the standard hatched inking, I used another technique here in parts known as “stippling”. For those that don’t know, stippling just means shading using dots. I wanted a more softer tone in this image, so I used that technique to try and achieve that… What do you think of it?

Inktober Day 25: Drench Out

My interpretation for the 25th word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Drench’. A creature being overwhelmingly drenched.

…Now I really am a broken record it seems. With this one, I wanted to do something quick and experimental with some wet in wet techniques to compliment the theme word. I wanted it to work, but I’m not going to lie, I absolutely hate how it turned out, but… well… whilst I’m running on empty, I’m not expecting to do good all the time in this challenge.

Day 25 Drench Drench Out

Drench Out: A complete and utter experimental mess.

The concept is that the creature is so overwhelmed by a mysterious deluge, that it’s floor bound and can’t get up. I used Inktense, wet in wet for the swampy looking background, and Posca pens for the solid colour of the creature and it’s toy boat.

I perhaps went a bit too ambitious with how I hoped this would turn out, however, what I’m most shocked about is how the florescent orange coloured highlights (that I used to highlight the creature) scanned in as the same pure white as the rain.

In hindsight, I should be taking my own advice in not making things more complex then it has to be. I’m no longer going to try to be ambitious, I’m just going to aim for simple, but effective ideas to go on. Lesson learned!

…Hopefully. 😉

Ah well, I hope you enjoy anyway.

Inktober Day 24: Evil Cunning

My interpretation for the 24th word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Cunning’. A skeleton hatching an evil and cunning plan.

Sorry this is a day late… Again… (do I sound like a broken record? I feel like one…) It’s been hard to keep up, but I’m managing to do so! I can feel myself being able to do this (even if I am extremely knackered…) This is another Halloween inspired one since we’re coming up to the end of October now… It’s nice to sneak a couple in when I run out of ideas.

Day 24 Cunning Evil Cunning

Evil Cunning: Muahahaha!

The skeleton is hatching a cunning plan. I really like, and was inspired by, dark ink hatching in the middle of a characters face… which is a technique used in some comic or Halloween illustrations to increase drama, so thought it’d be nice to do my own original version and practice this technique. I hope you like it.

This was done using many different types of ink…. Time to play catch-up, I hope I can get today’s entry done sometime today…

Inktober Day 23: Moon Dancer

My interpretation for the 23rd word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Ray’. A wolf gracefully dancing in front of the moon and it’s rays

Sorry this is a day late… I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely this turned out. Obviously it isn’t perfect (but I don’t expect it to be)… there are flaws here and there, but the effects turned out quite well seeing as I ironically used dark colours to make the rays of the moon stand out even brighter.

Day 23 Ray Moon Dancer

Moon Dancer: Let’s Boogie!

This concept is pretty simple. A wolf dances in front of the moon… the “rays” relate to the word ray which was the prompt that this is supposed to match. Right… now time to try and catch up to today’s word… see you soon!

I did this using Faber Castell PITT pens (black, and Cold Grey IV) and white ink for highlights.

Inktober Day 22: Happy Copper

My interpretation for the 22nd word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Donut’. A copper (police officer) enjoying a sugary donut/doughnut.

I enjoyed doing this one, but when colouring in the “Day 22” doughnut, the pink ink smeared with the black, and my cold and evil black heart broke again…. I don’t think I allowed the black to dry enough before colouring it in… anyhow, this was remedied slightly with the usage of white ink to correct it.

Day 22 Donut Happy Copper

Happy Copper: Even the doughnut is smiling. Aww.

For the subject itself, I know there’s a stereotype about police officers eating doughnuts as a satirical comment on “sitting on the job”… so I decided to use that to inspire today’s entry since drawing just a plain old doughnut isn’t enough for me. This copper is “pigging” out on his doughnut (Geddit?) and hasn’t got a care in the world for the time being. Ahh…. the beautiful joy of ignorance.

This entry was completed using black star ink for outlines, an acrylic ink mixture for the pink colour, and white ink for highlights. Hope you all enjoy for now!
