Another concept idea I had, though I'm not sure it's related to my previous world building attempt. Maybe?
I wanted to practice more perspective, so I spent a bit more time on this one. Used wolves as reference... Just over an hour from sketch to finished result, so still a bit rushed compared to my previous attempts. Plenty of issues, but like how it turned out. Mostly.
Another loose scene related to day 11 and day 13. My intention was to get through most of my backlog this weekend, though I ended up having to reinstalling my computer instead so I had to rush through this one. I also realize I'm terrible at drawing arms and legs. One of the things I should practice after Inktober is over.
Probably my worst Inktober drawing so far in terms of quality. I feel I've regressed to when I was a kid... I'm keeping it for the concept, and also as a reference point for the future.
I'm rushing through the backlog now, so quality is taking a dive. This one took less than an hour, most of that was spent on concepting. Possibly related to my world building attempt that came out of day 13. I'm not being very consistent with my creature design here.
This is loosely related to day 6 (sword), and day 13 (teeming). I was going to scrap this, but I'm running out of time if I want to finish most of my backlog before the end of October. It's also interesting from an educational point of view, so I'm keeping it. I intend to do a post-mortem of sorts once Inktober is over. In short, this is what happens when I try to cram too many details on too small a paper, while not giving myself enough time to complete it.
I wanted to expand a bit on the world building I did for the day 13 drawing, by building on the day 6 drawing. Loose idea was a kid and her dragon decides to play knight, and steals a sword and shield from one of the town guards. Tried to keep it cartoony, but there were too many details for even a 0.1mm pen tip. I'm sure it would be possible to get it right, though my hand is nowhere near steady enough, and there is no margin for error... So you can barely tell what's going on in this one. I also gave up in the middle of it when I realized I couldn't salvage it.
Lots of reference videos for this one, mostly because I didn't know much about the species. The way they hold their front paws reminded me of Roger from Tekken, so naturally it got a pair of boxing gloves!
The inking turned out much better in this one. Opted for thicker strokes, which minimized the uneven ink flow I normally get on this paper when trying to draw thinner lines.
All of my original ideas for this prompt were either too ambitious or too cliché. Kept postponing it since it was already in the backlog. Eventually I just started drawing mirrored abstract shapes until this emerged. This one took a lot of ink. In fact, I just about ran out.
Went with a children book's type of art style. I like the concept, though the result feels lazy, and I don't think it's the art style that's doing it.
