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 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 DAY 1

Standard

Let’s start this Inktober with a bang! Here’s a piece I’ve wanted to do since I reread the Silmarillion. I finally got around to doing, Melkor and Ungoliant destroying the two trees. There’s supposed to be big tree roots in the foreground, but I think I’m going to do those in the computer and not risk damaging the original.

I certainly can’t promise that my other inktober pieces will be this detailed, but I’m glad I got one big splashy piece in. See you all tomorrow for Day 2 of Inktober and Carpe Scream.
