So I just went through another cyclone. That was pretty fun. You know what isn’t fun? Not having power for over 52 hours and counting (I’ve moved back to my parents place for the last few nights where I can have a warm shower and not drink off milk).
While I did have no power, I did do some drawing by candlelight and finished this one off. It’s based off a German saying a close friend told me “Nichts ist nur gut oder nur schlecht” – “Nothing is just bad or good”
Live Fast, Die Young
And I have internet again, what a relief. In other news, it’s only week two or uni and I’m already over it. How long until retirement?
I felt bad for making him an alcoholic last week, so I decided to make him not so lonely this time around
No plans as of yet, but I’ve still got two days to get that sorted. Can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas too! It’s such a shame that I find creepy things so much more enjoyable to draw; it looks like I’ll never get that job at Hallmark
Couldn’t decide which overall composition I preferred either, so help me out and let me know which you think turned out better.
Kyrkogrim: The Church Grim
Scandinavian folklore is extremely interesting; I highly recommend playing “Year Walk” as it does a brilliant job of introducing the topic and some of the beliefs. Next thing you know, it’ll be 1am, you’ll have a browser full of tabs open and be fully engrossed in finding out more.
Even though I’m down in Brisbane for a holiday, I made sure that I found time to get some sketching in! (This also explains why the image quality is a biy lower because I’m away from a proper scanner)
Supanova was amazing too, and I managed to meet all three guests I was wanting to! (click here to see last week’s post where I explained what Supanova is and my mission for it this year) I tried not to fan too hard, but I had limited success with this… I’ll post an update of my trip/adventure next week with all the fantastic people I met and art I managed to pick up during my time away.
Okay, back to some heavier inking again! Today’s prompt was: Pumpkin.
Nightmare Before Christmas has to be one of my favourite movies period, animated or not, so Jack Skellington was an obvious choice. Heck, I even wrote a senior english assignment on the opening scene of the film.
Also, if you are interested in getting your spooky skeleton fingers on a physical print of any of my Inktober art, I’ve set up a Society6 store filled with higher res versions of all of them in varying sizes!
