Inktober 25

inktober 15_25 It offers no real guidance.

Note to self: india ink wash dries much, much faster than watercolor and resists blending.  May have to go wet-on-wet to prevent unwanted layering effect.  Highly disappointed in non-opacity of white ink.

Inktober ?? WIP

equinox pencilsYeah, so this is what I was working on.  I’m not sure if/when this is going to be finished as an Inktober; I’m still mulling how I want to proceed from here.  I am having vague ideas involving india ink washes and white ink over top for ocean-ripples/highlighting, which is not a technique I have done before so I should probably practice on something else first to get the hang of it.  But I scanned the pencils so even if I completely screw it up going forward, I can try again as a digital piece.

So far pleased with the results, however.  This is a neat one.  I even snuck a teensy bit of the Orrery in there.  : )

Inktober 23

inktober 15_23I had this other thing I was working on for yesterday’s Inktober.  But then I finally finished the pencils on it and realized that if getting that far had taken me 3+ hours, I was going to run out of stamina/muck it up horribly if I tried to finish it all in one day.

So instead you can have a cute anthropomorphized version of the Companion Cube.  It just wants to be your friend!  Testing has proven that the anthropomorphic Companion Cube is 73% less likely to be incinerated by the subject.  …You monster.
