Inktober 2017 – Day 1: “Swift”

inktoberswift

The Day 1 prompt for Inktober this year is “Swift”, and since it’s October, I figured I’d draw a flying bat. In retrospect, I probably could’ve drawn him diving or something, but this is how it came out. I don’t think it looks that bad, since I was honestly going for a little cartoony, but the direction of the speed lines just doesn’t seem right.  Ah, well, it is what it is. I can compare this to next year’s and see what happens.

I am quite happy with the new Copic markers and the new white pencil in the new mid-tone sketchbook. It really adds a lot.

NOTE: Apparently, even though it’s 10/1 here, it’s still loading as 10/2, so I’m guessing the server calendar is set to GMT or something that’s ahead of me by at least an hour. Rest assured, I am not behind on this Inktober challenge.
…for the very few of you reading this…

Dismas: Revisited

I got some new grey copic markers, a new mid-tone sketchbook, and a white pencil today, so I thought I’d revisit my character in the Vampire Dark Ages game I’m playing. The light in this picture kind of washes it out, but I still think all the new tools really helped add some depth to the image.

He’s gained some light leather armor since the last picture, which is why that’s been included. Apparently he’s lost his feet, though?

…I just got distracted by the armor and forgot to go back and do the feet, and didn’t realize until I’d already put the white outline down there. Eh, maybe they’ll grow back for the next go ’round.
