Inktober Final Day!

Standard

Wow! Last day of Inktober and I’m finishing on a Tolkien-y bang. Here is the fab furry-footed four, Pippin, Merry, Frodo and Sam. This inktober wasn’t like last year where I tested technique and my inking limits. This one was more about finishing assignments and personal challenges. I only hope I can do another challenge month like this when I’m NOT already doing a horror-movie challenge. 2 in one go was a bit hard on me. That being said, I’m quite pleased with myself and I hope you enjoyed this challenge. Thanks for checking in with me!

I’m bone tired today, so I decided to draw the REASON I’m too tired to do a fancy picture today. This is “actual” depiction of me trying to cram a rowing machine, a step machine, and a step-glider into a minivan by me onesies. WOof.

Here’s Inktober Day 18. I’ve wanted to do this for a while: Here’s Cinderaptor. I wrote a short story about her ages ago, and I haven’t drawn her yet. For added fun, I used orange construction paper. You can read the short story here.

Today’s offering for Inktober is a half-elf bard code name: THE FACE. She’s studying her script for the next Dungeon Tour. She has to be both the victim and the villain so she has a quick-change costume that will adapt. Sorry for the weird angle I shot it with, but my hands keep shaking and I’m tired.

This 30-day horror movie challenge is starting to get to me. Guess what I’ve been watching lately? (heh)

Vengeful Ghost by Monica Marier

Tomorrow will be the last day of this Challenge, giving way to NaNoWriMo. And I’ve decided in the vein of inktober, I’m going to try to post my “writing thought of the day,” on the blog. This will be part of the November countdown to the launch of my next book, “No Shoes No Service,” and include tips, observations and a lot of whining, as well as sneak peaks, sketches and teasers for my upcoming book. It’s book 3 in the Linus Saga, so I’ll also be constantly reminding you that the first 2 books, Must Love Dragons, and Runs in Good Condition can be purchased through Hunt Press or on Amazon.

Inktober Twofer Part 2

Yesterday I was out all day until well after midnight for RVACON so I couldn’t post my Inktober project. So I’m posting yesterday’s project with today’s. Both are kind of dark, because the venue was kind of dark, sorry.

John Constantine by Monica Marier

I was inspired by the premiere of “Constantine” on Friday night to draw my version of how John might look. I tried to make him look a bit withered and weathered, like some of the chainsmokers I know. It came out a bit “Helsing” in the end which surprised me. (heh)

Today’s sketch is courtesy of my daughter. She LOVES spooky things and vampires, and zombies, and Halloween, but I think she’s been overdoing it lately as she’s starting to get nightmares, specifically zombie nightmares (boy, is she MY kid or what?). I decided to make her a picture of the friendly zombie from Skeleton Crew, ZOMBOY, to make her feel better. He’s hanging over her bed tonight with her newly adjusted dream catcher. Fingers crossed everyone.

Inktober 23

Standard

Today I had to combine business with pleasure. The inks for the comics were SO time-consuming this week, along with preparing for my guest appearance at RVACON. And it was mostly because of the research and time dedicated to THIS panel which I’m posting here.

The Romanies by Monica Marier

This is a shot of the Romany encampment that will be appearing in the upcoming Skeleton Crew page. I looked through dozens of reference photos of real Romany nomads to try and get a very authentic feel to all of these individuals. I can’t wait to see the finished page! Later!
