Throwback Thursday AKA Moldie Oldies AKA Inktober 2016

So I did Inktober in 2016, but I never posted them here. Well here are all 31 entries!
 

 
From October 1st-15th I drew some random monster heads, and for October 17th-31st I decided to flesh out full body designs for each of those monster heads. Below each head is attached to its corresponding fleshed out design. Click each one for a larger view!
 

 

 

 
And originally October 16th was the day where I drew a simple pic to explain what I just explained above. Now it’s kind of a redundant dangler, but I’m including it for the sake of pumpkin-headed completionism:
 

 

Inktober 01 2018

 
Well… Mer May didn’t go so well, but let’s see if I can crank out a couple for Inktober eh? No promises though!

#Inktober 01 2018

I was just trying to figure out costume details at first but then I ended up liking the drawing… however, I ran out of space for the feet, so I had to lightbox it and redraw her…
 

ink on paper

a few marker sketches from the past year plus…

a blue dragon…

 
an Oliver Queen/Ken Masters mash-up..

 
Doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy…

 
and a practice Dr. McCoy (TOS era version) that actually turned out okay, along with a bonus Data…

Mer May 2018 02

So May has shaped up to be a leeeedle bit busier than expected. But at least here’s a second mermaid, and maybe I can fit in a few more before the month is over.

If it pleases you, follow along on my Instagram…  

Demon Girl

A little Halloweenish something that I drew last year but forgot to post. I’ll try to post a more substantive Halloweenish something by the end of the week…

 
(Yes, it was drawn on the piece of cardboard that you tear off to open a box of tissues.)

Pinstripes and Booo-llets

I was having a conversation with Josh over IM which lead to me proposing a hi-larious image, which lead to me drawing said image because it was suitable for Halloween. Here it is:

You see, they’ll never take him alive, because he’s already dead. GET IT?? I TOLD YOU I’M HI-LARIOUS! HAPPY HALLOWEEN, SUCKERS!

(I’m behind a post, but I have stuff incoming later this week… )

Mummy Knows Best

Here’s yet another ~10 year old piece, brought to life with new colors:

Man, there is… a lot going on with this drawing (good, bad, and ugly). I don’t know if I can talk about this coherently, so let’s just take an inventory of some of the weirdness here:

  • Cartoony proportions on the heroine are executed poorly, making her look like a big boobed midget. Maybe that’s not so bad? I’m undecided.
  • Blunderbuss with skull-and-crossbones relief sculpted on the stock. The execution isn’t great, but come on, that’s a decent idea, right?
  • Crop-cricle-esque patterns on the mummy’s sarcophagus, implying an extra-terrestial aspect to the mummy. Just a little bit of extra intrigue thrown in at no extra cost.
  • The mummy’s bandages are way too skinny. What the heck!

At the time that I drew this, I was pretty much maxing out my skills, so even though I can draw much better now, I’m glad I that I could bring some competent colors to the piece. The me of 10 years ago would be pleased, I think. I learned a lot while coloring this, and I’m in one of those creative phases where I feel like I might actually possibly know what I’m doing. Don’t worry folks–such phases are short-lived for any self-respecting artist.

(This counts as post #2 for this week, so I’m keeping steady at a deficit of 4 missed posts. I’m posting early because Comic-Con is later this week, but I’ll be on-track to continue catching up on my missed posts when I get back. I know no one cares about this except for me, but what can I say–if I don’t keep me honest and working, who will? See you on the other side, folks! *dives head first into Comic-Con*)
