Inktober #14: Bamboo

This Inktober prompt is "Tree".  I took a shot at imitating sumi-e with various shades of grey marker.  The result was serviceable, but you lose the ability to effectively mesh practiced stroke and end result.  For example, the you lose the ability to plan and use the natural drying of the ink on the brush to create lighter areas.  With marker, you have to jury-rig a similar look.  That said, not bad for a first attempt.

Critical Role: Iced Coffee

Let's continue the Goristro barista theme from last week for the current Demon vs. Dragon showdown on Critical Role (on Geek & Sundry's Twitch Channel, every Thursday).

Inktober #13 "Scared": Stranger Things

Today's Inktober prompt is "Scared", and my first thought was a sketch of Winona Ryders' Joyce Byers from Stranger Things!

The marker I used for the grey ink did not behave as well on my sketch paper as the heavy black ink marker from a different brand.  I'll have to dig into supplies to see if something works a bit better, or it is back to black ink and crosshatching.

Inktober #11: Transport

Look, I have no idea how "Transport" turned into a guy in a hazmat suit strolling along with a container of radioactive rice, but I enjoyed doing it!
