Edit: this was originally my inktober, but it has most of my recent art and i don't really go back to my old art thread cause... well i don't have a reason. That's fine.

Original: I said I wasn't gonna make one of these, but i'm actually doing Inktober daily (which i didn't expect) and really enjoying it! Here are all the prompt lists i'm doing (so far i've only used the official prompts though):

Here's all the drawings so far:

Day one: Gargoyle. I did Blue from The Raven Cycle, as she is at the beginning of chapter one (it describes her as a "restless, sightless gargoyle" so i thought it was fitting).

Spoiler

Day two: scurry. I didn't really do anything for that day because i was working hard on a different art piece (one of Kal and Szeth fighting). So here's what ya get:

Spoiler

20221004_175718.thumb.jpg.b8cad0b5d21347ba40d46f190e748e64.jpg

Day three: bat. I was gonna draw the bat from Anastasia cause he's funny, but then i remembered that bats can also be baseball bats, so here's Steve Harrington (from Stranger Things):

Spoiler

Day four: scallop. This one is my favorite so far! It's my favorite OC, Iyaden (don't tell the others) in a dress with a scalloped neckline. It's a bit out of character for her, but i'm cooking up a little bit if a traumatic backstory for her, so she gets a cute drawing.

Spoiler

I've already drawn tomorrow's prompt (Flame, for both official and cosmere inktober) but i'll wait till tomorrow to share lol.

Day five: Flame. this one's a combo of every prompt except the Raven one, cause both the cosmere and the official prompt is flame, and it's a character from The Magnus Archives.

It's Agnes Montegue:

Spoiler

I won't explain exactly what she is (spoiler territory) but just know she's pretty Flamey.

Steve all the way! :D

Day six: i'm using both the official and cosmere prompt today, Bouquet and Miscreant. It's Wayne (i've been meaning to draw him, and miscreant could be a way to describe him lol) with flowers! Here he is:

Spoiler

20221006_175858.thumb.jpg.87ef2ae872569ae5d87fb2912bc2c48b.jpg

It didn't turn out exactly Wayne-ish, but i still like it.

Here's the process (all the cool kids are doing it lol):

Spoiler

First a little sketchy with a Target Up & Up brand mechanical pencil (i always use that specific kind of pencil. The lead is just right.) to get everything in the right place. I do a circle and then lines for the head/chin, and i find using circles for the shoulders helps get the shape of them right:20221006_175737.thumb.jpg.4482456dac3b189dbe51f24b100ecc86.jpg

Next i do firmer lines and do the hair n stuff at the top of the body:

20221006_175754.thumb.jpg.877e099b57fce8e10fd63bd7cde010e2.jpg

Then i get the outline all the way done, and make the lines clear:

20221006_175818.thumb.jpg.82a38eff6ab32557385d652ab3f47196.jpg

Sometimes i stop there, plus a bit of tidying it up, but i've been having a lot of fun inking in and coloring, so next i draw over it with a Micron 01 pen, wait for it to dry, and erase the pencil lines. Sometimes i do that after i color it in, like in day four's picture, and i don't have particularly strong feelings about either, both ways work for me.

Anyway i forgot to take a picture of just the plain ink lines, so here's it partially colored in:20221006_175836.thumb.jpg.439fccae679d70f78c7b7a8d79c460ac.jpg

I just use crayola pencils and press down really hard while i'm coloring. It always works out pretty well, i think, though there are sometimes weird lines (like on the hat).

And then it's done!

20221006_175858.thumb.jpg.87ef2ae872569ae5d87fb2912bc2c48b.jpg

There's relatively less going on in this one than usual. I might do another process with a more complicated one.

This is really cute! Also, the colours are lovely.

I missed yesterday :(

Here's a low-ish quality (but still better than the first haha) re-do of day two using the Magnus Archives prompt that i did a couple days ago instead:

Spoiler

20221008_163754.thumb.jpg.bb5c635eaef8cf128e525932f6a2e75d.jpg

It's Michael Shelly :D (it's fanon that he has huge wonky hands, so his hand is sort of supposed to look like that, though i should have made it bigger cause it looks a little more like limp noodles than i'd hoped ;-;)

I also didn't really do anything for today either, but a few days ago i redrew the drawings i did back in March of the main characters of the Magnus Archives, and since they are together i think it counts for match. I think it's cool to see the seven month progress:

Spoiler

20221008_164543.thumb.jpg.bea84abf5a94e249a7c3f12ff4b0fccd.jpg

Yeah jon gets a skirt lol.

Anyway i'm probably gonna draw a lot tomorrow (though i may end up just working on my Halloween costume, idk) so maybe i'll do yesterday's and todays then. And tomorrow's hopefully.

... that did not age well

Anyway, um, i kind of completly forgor how to draw. So.

Here is the Ravenstober day 8 prompt (it would be spoilers for book 1 of the raven cycle but i just won't tell you who the character is and you'll be fine):

Spoiler

20221014_074551.thumb.jpg.46a6ae8ed244fae7380a8d824d348f22.jpg

I drew different eyes than usual, and it turned out pretty good for a side profile, i think.

For yesterday's Cosmere prompt, Silhouette, here's a doodle from my vent book which turned out kinda cool:

Spoiler

20221014_074420.thumb.jpg.6d21c3661492e4271475fafed8a942fd.jpg

I'l probably re-draw some version of that in my sketchbook.

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH

(Spoilers)

Spoiler

Every time i read "then he slipped out of time" (it's close to that i'm sure) i cry so hardddd D: he deserved so much better imo. But i'm rereading dream theives (cause i'm trying to make an animation storyboard of the part where gansy comes downstairs and ronan dreamt a night terror. Even though i can't animate. But i'll save the storyboard for when i can :D) and i love the part where Noah and blue are at Monmouth together, i always laugh so hard when they kiss lmao.

Anyway

I completely gave up on inktober

Here's some cool drawings instead:

Spoiler

Nico di angelo (spoilers for House of Hades kinda. And also hidden oracle? Idk. Not that bad. But proceed with caution i guess)

Spoiler

20221027_210929.thumb.jpg.39bc85bd1a0c4536cd8d3a04f58de69c.jpg

Here's a portrait i did using different mediums than usual (it's not anyone in particular but it kind of reminds me of Adam Parrish from The Raven Cycle):

Spoiler

20221027_211041.thumb.jpg.10c99a40ac1b57388f85b83bb4f656a1.jpg

Idk how i feel about it, especially the lips (i hate the lips bro) but it was really fun to draw, and cause of the pink pen it looks really cool in sunlight.

OC drawing (her name is Viola, this is the first time i've actually buckled down and canonized her appearance):

Spoiler

20221027_211413.thumb.jpg.1afa4f385da88527a9d89e0e16deafd2.jpg

Here are some dreamer trilogy characters:

Spoiler

20221027_211850.thumb.jpg.40ac935f93b8ca30bf9041c0914b49f9.jpg

(Yes i put no effort into the little head next to the kid with earphones. Bryde for anyone wondering.)

Spoilers for Greywaren (so basically @ Morningtide lol):

Spoiler

it's everyone who i thought was dead/going to die/died, including the covered up one who is ronan, cause i thought maybe he was gonna die ;-;

But the only casualty was Lilliana of course. I liked her and was sad, but, you know. Gotta be glad maggie let Matthew come back to life and didn't kill adam. (That would have been. Very very bad. Obviously.)

And here's one of my favorite scenes from greywaren (i would say spoilers but there's no context so it's probably ok.) Content warning for blood splatters and a gun (i pretty much never draw that stuff and despise that sort of violence, but this scene was cool and badass af. I CAN BEND MY MORALS SOMETIMES OK)

@ Morningtide before you look (spoilers)

Spoiler

Yes i am aware that the elevator at the fairy market would probably not have a paper sign taped above it that says "sweetmetals." Idk why i put it there. I was at early morning seminary, don't judge. It's chapter 27 just fyi

Actual drawing (yes finally):

Spoiler

20221027_215440.thumb.jpg.61ab795998a6d4074db876bd74dbec9b.jpg

It's messier than usual but i fricking love it. NOW GO READ THE RAVEN CYCLE AND THEN THE DREAMER TRILOGY SO YOU CAN GET CONTEXT.

Ight that's it

Here's a scene from chapter seven of Blue Lilly Lilly Blue (book three of The Raven Cycle, no spoilers DOOMIE)

Spoiler

RIP anyone who hasn't read the books trying to figure out what room it is lol

(my dignity would not allow me to search "toilet drawing reference" so that is why the toilet looks like that...)

Also I just realized i forgot to draw Gansy's boat shoes :(

Spoiler

Sorry about the lighting ;-; (and the pizza on the wall is a clock, not just a random wall pizza lol).

 

I showed this to my little sister and she just said "hmmm they look kind of like blocks and they're too skinny" so rip. I didn't use a reference at all for any of the people, just the booth, so plz excuse their blockyness lol

Our school art assignment was to draw someone using a renaissance sculpture as a reference, and i think mine turned out quite nice:

Spoiler

20221111_163917.thumb.jpg.e5b102c226bf9e770568528e79fd5e0f.jpg

 

I used to be able to draw stuff like that in 1-2 hours with just a phone sized reference (but with colored pencils instead of shading lol) and i think i lost that skill :( this is better, but it took me 2 and a half art classes and i used a grid and a printed out reference of the same size. I gotta practice with faces more.

:)

Here's this (not really spoilers for Stormlight Archive but it won't make sense unless you've at least read the first one):

Spoiler

Lirin: i know you think death is terrible, kal, but it's just a part of life. By the time my sentence is over, a hundred people will have died in Theylena.

Kaladin: WHY DID YOU STOP TALKING THEN ?!
