Happy (almost) Winter!

There’s snow on the mountains already! This gets me excited and makes me want to dig out my massive collection of scarves. It’s finally my favorite time of the year!

I love snow. But, I don’t like the wind that often comes with snow. It makes my hair too messy. Even people with short hair can not escape the wind.

Inktober (part 2)

October has passed and so has Inktober.

Here are the rest of the highlights from the month of ink drawings.

Inktober (part 1)

Being the lazy artist I am, I’ve never actually done Inktober before. But I realized that I know quite a few brilliant writers who take part in the yearly Nanowrimo (next month!), I decided that drawing 31 ink drawings in one month is not nearly as much work as a 50,000 word novel.

Or maybe it is, who knows. Though, I am running a bit behind in Inktober, to be honest, but that’s mainly because I had the flu for a short while and was being all around tired with work and such.

I may eventually post all the drawings, but here are the highlights so far.

Birthday post

Markers are still something I’m fairly new to, especially copic markers.

But, I’ll use any excuse to draw something sort of fun for the sake of “practice”.

Also, today is my birthday, so that’s another excuse to draw something not too serious.

The Hero

As I slowly start getting my life in some sort of gear (shooting for 3rd or 4th gear, but I’m puttering along in 1st gear for now), one of the few fun things I’ve enjoyed is role playing (see: Dungeons and Dragons-esque gaming) with a group of awesome guys each week.

I can’t draw lizardmen, but if I could, this would be a heroic picture of the Lizardman fighter in our RP party. After losing his great sword by rolling a critical 1, he decides to rip off one of the boss’s, a crystal spider, legs and stabbed the monster to death with it. Thanks to his savage and brilliant thinking (as well as some natural 20’s), the rest of the useless party was saved and no one died.

 

Done with ink and copic markers, then fiddled around with in Photoshop.

Frozen

I’m not dead (not yet, at least), but feeling rather frozen when it comes to my art.

I need a reboot of inspiration, or a good kick in the pants, whichever comes first.

Happy Halloween!

Romance is not dead, even for ghosts.

For this little doodle, I broke out a set of unopened colored pencils I can’t even remember buying.

I actually don’t really do much for Halloween besides eat kitkat bars all day.  Someday I’ll go out and have fun.
