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.
I realized last night that I’ve been a guest at RavenCon since 2010, and I’ve never yet drawn them a raven. I felt it was time to correct that, so from me, to all the wonderful Ravencon staff and, here’s Corby. And do check out Ravencon Convention in Richmond VA. It’s a fantastic scifi fantasy convention and I look forward to it every year.
Here’s my Inktober for Day 9. I put a shoutout for ideas, and my friend Barrie requested to see Linus in a school uniform. I’m sure she meant something along the lines of cramming 52-year-old Linus into a Japanese boys school uniform, but I did her one better. Here is a young Linus (about 19) in the official Uniform of the Rangers Union Pre-One student.
He looks like he’s on the way to archery practice, and doesnt’ care if his hair is combed or his jacket is hooked up. He has three leaves on his shoulder indicating that this is his third year as a student (students take 4 years to complete courses). His jacket also Features the triple-leaf emblem of the Rangers Union on his chest. The drawing needs some tweaking, but I like details that I came up with on the fly that add a little more to Linus’s story.
Hope you like it, Barrie.
Day 2 of the Inktober Challenge, and here is an attempt at Quince the Barbarian. Big Muscley men are very strange to draw because their proportions always seem, just WRONG. I even did this with a photo-reference and I remember looking at all the photos of muscley men and thinking they just look like cartoons, and made of clay. Oh well. Minimal lines, since I intend to colour this. See you all tomorrow.
