Inktober Day 14: Scary Clowns

Standard

So much for doing my pre-novel research. Assignments are starting to call, so those are going to be featured more this month. Case in point: today’s Ink is from a Carnival-themed game that Tangent Artists is working on. Here’s UNCLE LUCKY.

A bit uncanny, yeah? I get the feeling that he’s one of those clowns who doesn’t understand that people don’t like clowns. I think he’s blissfully unaware of how creepy he is.

Inktober Day 13

Standard

Skipped another day, but that’s okay, I’m going strong. Here’s today’s ink, which is from a commission I’m working on (posted with permission). It’s Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas at the battle of Pelenor.

If you really are curious, this is all I managed yesterday. It’s a sammich.

Inktober Day 10

Standard

I missed 2 days this weekend, but you know? That’s okay. Instead of worrying about making it up or stressing, I’m going to just keep going. So here is a cute little H. P. Lovecraft colouring page. I always dreamed that some day I can do a full colouring book of these. Some day. Anyways, feel free to print and colour this and share it with me. I’d love to see what you do!

Inktober Day 7

Quick one today. I was bu-hiz-sy today. This is Cedric. He’s the industrial lifting robot, who is in charge of all the dangerous activity on the Mallard. He loads the pots onto the launch, he uses the grappling attachment in his torso to fetch the bouys and reel the pots in again and stacks and ties them. The people on board can do this work in a pinch, but his large sturdy electromagnetic feet, herculanium frame, and powerful hydraulics mean he can do the job of six men with no fatigue or risk to life. Too bad about his attitude…

Inktober Day 6

Standard

Today’s ink is just a doodle, but a crucial doodle. I was playing with aliens. I need to come up with what the “Droloni” race looks like since I have 2 characters that are Droloni, Landri, co-pilot of the Mallard, and the antagonist, General Yzan.  I’ve never done aliens before, so I decided to come up with a skull and go from there. Here’s what I got after a LOT of drawing and erasing. I’ve come up with a female skull with and without flesh. I also drew a male skull.  Thoughts? Criticisms?

Inktober Day 3

Standard

Continuing with my theme of concept art, this  Zac Scott, Lisa’s older brother. He’s very small for his age, and twelve years old, so his eleven-year-old sister towers over him. Everyone thinks she’s the oldest sibling because of her height and confidence. Timid and brooding Zac, has trouble standing out and hates making decisions, preferring to let his sister take the reins. He has a satchel, in which he carries photographs of his grandparents, some of the only family records his parents had left. They are also some of the only images left in the Universe of Bansha, Ireland and Johannesburg, South Africa before Earth became unsustainable.

His clothes, like his sister’s are a mix of too big and too small. His shoes and jeans are clearly too tight for him, but he wears an over-sized shirt and zipped up jacket, these are other elements that make him seem thin and babyish next to his sister. So that’s Zac.
