Inktober-Days 26-31


These are last batch of drawings that I did for the Inktober challenge.  As if doing the drawings themselves was not hard enough, posting on my site became a problem too.  But, even if I did not post them all daily here, they were completed one for each day.  And I did make 31 ink drawings this week, one each day.  For this batch I was trying to just do some portraits.  Day 26 are the two Han Solo drawings(top row-middle and right).  I wanted to try out 2 different styles off the same photo reference.  The middle was completed with using very few ink lines and the shading was achieved with markers.  The Han on the right was all line work going for a more comic book version.  the top left drawing was day 27’s piece of Alice Cooper.  This one was completed quickly on my lunch break, that left me enough time to lay in the solid blacks and to tone it with pencil.  Bottom left is a drawing of Vincent Price for Day 28.  This another marker drawing but I went in with some more ink line work than I did on the Han drawing.  I am trying to hit that happy medium.  Bela Lugosi on the bottom right is for day 29.  Very scratchy and another quick drawing for that day.


Day 30 is another little portrait with markers of Boris Karloff from The Mummy.


And this leads us to the last drawing of Inktober, from the fantastic Vincent Price movie, The Abominable Dr Phibes.  It is a ink and ink wash drawing.

This was another month straight of daily artwork and it has been grueling doing this along with working my day job.  I feel like I need to keep the momentum going and do more daily drawing but I’m pretty sure I can’t keep it up.  I will be trying to complete some more complex work this month.  I want to take some more time with my art.  I also want to get back to some of the fundamentals and work on some anatomy studies.  I also plan on some painting time.  I will be posting most of these studies on Facebook and Instagram  and cherry picking some of the drawings for this blog.

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 18


Now it’s time to take a look at what is happening on the planet Hoth, during The Empire Strikes Back.  I think my favorite part of this is the guy quickly walking by, not trying to ease drop on Han and Leia.

30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 16


Here we go into the back end of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge.  And, for some reason during my lunch break, I decided that it was time to do a new Star Wars piece.  I have done a lot of Star Wars artwork and it’s been a while since I have completed a new Star Wars piece.  I must say that it felt good to do.

We are taking a look into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon during Episode 4.

You can also take a look at the pencil drawing for this piece, here:
