Inktober Day 17 - Graceful
"Build me a future, splendid and graceful / make it better by design. / Perfected strategies, applied technologies / a brighter future for a darker age." - VNV Nation, Streamline

Inktober Day 16: Battlecry
"It's so easy to kill / this I learned by watching you / if I have to I will / it's not pretty but it's true." - Emilie Autumn
Inktober Day 14: Mysterious
Sometimes I just have characters that I still know next to nothing about after writing them for years.
Adam is one of these characters. He appears from the very first scene of my novel, and though he is just a supporting character, he's been with my non-stop for about 6 years. And I don't understand anything about him. I should try to change that, not just because I owe it to him, but also because I think it makes me worse at writing him.
Inktober Day 13: Prayer
I was away for the weekend so I'm a bit behind on uploading. all caught up on drawings tho :P

I had the idea that the Falcas priests of Ridria renounce their gender when they take up their priesthoods, and live their lives without a defined gender, so that they can, in their actions in decisions, do right by any gender.
I think that every priest has their very own way of presenting that genderlessness outwardly, and this might be one of them.

Inktober Day 12 - Shattered
"We're broken but still breathing, we are wounded but we are healing" - Rise Against

This is what happens when I tell myself today I'm just gonna do something "simple" for Inktober because I don't have "much time".
Inktober Day 11: Faerlice Fancypants
I wanted to draw a sexy lady in fancy clothes, so Faerlice! Silver details because I don't have a gold pen...

October 10 2017

Some nights are just for The XX and drawing galaxies.

On a related note, I keep wondering what it must be like for someone who has never seen the moon and stars in their life, only heard stories of their existence, to really see them for the very first time.
Inktober Day 10: Nescani
I've still been having issues with how exactly to portray the Nescani in Bolt as Brass. I want them to be really strange and weird even to the people within this world, but I don't want them to be so creepy as to appear monstrous and unsympathetic. But in the other extreme, I also don't want them to just look like random humanoids with bug eyes. I want them to be special. unique. And I think I've gotten a little bit closer to what I wanted with today's sketches.

Inktober Day 9: The Nightmare Territories
I like trying new things during Inktober.
This was an experiments in backgrounds/settings, I wanted to make an interesting looking setting without any characters in it. I tried to pay particular attention to textures and patterns as well as fore-, middle- and background.

Inktober Day 8: Crooked
So.... I tried a bunch of new things today and none of them worked so.... sorry, you get a shitty picture today.
Honestly, the Kestral is the only thing about this picture that I don't hate.

please buy some commissions. anything.

Inktober Day 7 - Silhouette
Most of the time, I have no idea what I'm doing during Inktober until I begin.
I'm not sure if it's at all discernible what this is supposed to be, but I like the way it looks.

Inktober Day 6 - Sword
"Wie das Schwert meiner Gedanken, das im Nacken, stets bereit, mich von jedes Menschen Nähe, jeder Freundschaft leis entzweit."

This beautiful quote from Samsas Traum was the basis for this image. I cannot translate it well, but the gist of it is this: "Like the sword of my thoughts that is at my neck at all times, prepared to quietly cut me off from any person's warmth, from any friendship". Inspired by this quote and the rest of the song ("Wann sind wir daheim?"), I wanted to make a picture to represent a feeling of unraveling, of inner demons and nightmares, and this is what I came up with.
Day 5 - Swevendusts
I knew I was gonna do a picture of these two sooner or later in Inktober. So here it is, sooner rather than later :)

I still hate that damn marker.

Inktober Day 4: Underwater
Today's Inktober pic is a try at a panel that will be in Bolt as Brass Vol. 2! When I read the prompt I knew instantly this was what I'd do - I'm so excited for when I get to draw the real thing :D
Also I think that's the first time I've used that grey brush marker and not hated the result :D Because it tends to go SO streaky...

Day 3: Poison
The second I realized, I could draw young Everington, I really wanted to draw young Everington. 
I'm not very good at drawing people in ink with shading/cross-hatching, but I'm trying to improve so I'm trying to do it more often.

Also I need new markers, my two smaller ones are empty and now I only have the really big one...

Day 2 - Divided
Day 2 of Inktober - something simple today because I don't have that much time for drawing. 
I liked the idea tho and I like how it turned out.

Inktober Day 1: Das Messer
"Zwischen deine Schulterblätter / passt ein Messer und ein Kuss..."

First day of Inktober has me doing something WAY OUT THERE. Crikey, so much nakedness. It's a redraw to an old favourite song of mine that I've done a picture for about... idk... ten years ago? I'll see if I still have it somewhere and I might do a comparison.

I found it, and it's indeed 10 years old, it's got a date on it. Here it is:

Try at Realism
I wanted to try and see how realistic I can work in large scale... this here is one page in my sketchbook, and I worked with this picture in roughly 1:1 scale:
He's looking a bit cross-eyes and not all the details are right, but overall I'm fairly pleased...

Head Down
"This is not my face / and this is not my life / and there is not a single thing here I can recognize. / This is all a dream / and none of you are real / I'll give anything /I'll give anything."

Nine Inch Nails just gets me. And nothing calms me down quite like drawing Victor's hair.

reference is here:…
I am still incapable of drawing a decent kiss picture without reference.
felt like doing something cute and comfortable today.
