More October art. I do like the notion of just doing a bunch of little pieces because it’s [a month], and I sure as shootin’ don’t like to stick to prompts. So here’s Spider-Woman (working on hair textures), a nut hatch (mixing blue and black inks), penguin (different pen, minimalism) and a nighthawk (loose lines).
This year my creative partner Turner has decided to theme his inktober entries toward Pokemon, so if you like greyscale pocket monsters hoo boy, has Turner got some trading card sized pieces he’d be willing to sell you. Pictured are Pokedex, Golem, Gastly and Magikarp, I think
When I was young, probably a young teenager, a whippoorwill decided to take up residence on my parent’s garage. Despite being a ground bird, I swear this one posted up on the roof, meaning his (nocturnal) calls were muffled for my parents on the first floor, and seemed to be funneled directly at me. I threw open the window, hollering at the thing to try and get it to leave. Though it was dark, I thought I could make out this lump on the roof, steadfastly remaining to continue his call throughout the night.
I was surprised amongst the myriad Amazing Fantasy 15 homages, cover rips, et al that there wasn’t a prominent example with Spider-Man Noir. I didn’t go digging through deviantART so I won’t claim to be the first, but here’s another entry for inktober. Sharpie, gel pen, and pen and ink (along with some post-production for the logos) and here we are. I think I’ll sell the original at the Portland Comic Expo, this Sunday, if anyone wants it.
Apparently inktober is a thing, and as a pen and ink guy, I’d be remiss if I didn’t contribute something to the pantheon. Occasionally I’ll like to take a panel of The Punchin’ Bag and do it as a larger scale drawing, throw a wrench into the works as far as style (I mean, it’s still me and it’s still black and white, so it won’t be too jarring). So here’s a bit from the next Punchin’ Bag strip, a slightly more detailed or stylized Tex Arkana.
