Inktober Final Day!

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!

Inktober Day 29 is another in the Lord of the Rings series I’ve been doing: Here’s Aragorn in his “Strider” guise. I left off shading since I wanted to do that with colour. I was also trying to avoid it being too Viggo, so it’s a cross between him and my childhood image of Aragorn (Michael Praed).

Inktober today is another from the agenda. This is a clipping from an upcoming page of CRIT! It features Linus at age 17, 27, 37, and 52. I won’t spoil the joke, I’ll just say that yes, he’s getting more frustrated as we go. I also seem to have inadvertently done a 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s hairstyle in order.That McGuyver mullet is to die for.

Inktober Day 27

Here’s today’s Inktober and this might be my favorite one this year. I’m watching Sweeney Todd for Carpe Scream and I started thinking about a picture of Sweeney Todd I’d drawn when I was in college (about 1999). I’d never SEEN Sweeney Todd, I only had the soundtrack, so in my head I had to imagine what everyone looked like. In my head, Sweeney was thin as a rail and blond. Everyone was like “what?” but I thought it was cool. Anyways, here’s an updated pic of both Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett. It was done with Faber-Castell pen and a Crayola red washable marker.

I’m sick today and my hand’s shaky so I just played around with a black brush tip Copic marker and a Sakura white gel pen on a piece of purple construction paper. I screwed up some of the light, and I’m not happy with the sky, but I am happy about the tree bark and the illusion of depth. Not bad for shaky hands, I say. See you all tomorrow under more favorable circumstances, hopefully.

Here is Day 25’s Inktober and the LAST of the faces I need to render for the CRIT! banner. She will be “magicking” a 1-sided dice between her fingers.
