Inktober day 1 and Dredd

Inktober day 1 and Dredd

So we begin! Kicking it off with a little lettering and today’s awesome #Sketch_Dailies topic of Dredd.

This Dredd is inspired by Karl Urban’s fantastic job portraying the best judge in Mega City 1. While the movie isn’t for everyone, it does what it does really well. Plus I’d love to see a sequel. I have little hope of such a thing … but I’d love to see it.

Also you can tell where I wandered off of my guide lines for the lettering. But still I’m quite pleased with this.

Inktober 2014 Half Marathon

I’ve known about #inktober for a couple of years. Several of the artists I follow participate regularly. Well, I’m gonna do it this year.

Now for those who don’t know #inktober is an artistic challenge – full details here: http://mrjakeparker.com/inktober – the basics are to do a drawing in ink and post it every day. This year I saw the idea to do the “half marathon” which is a picture every other day, which is what I plan to do.

I want to keep consistent on this so I’m gonna lay out a few more parts of this goal so those of you who feel so inclined can hold me to these plans.

1. Post every odd numbered day starting on the 1st
2. Post what I have, works in progress are fine. I’m trying to work on my perfectionist tendency, as in getting it to ease up.
3. Enjoy drawing in ink

I’m planning on spreading these images across my various blogs and social media. Specifically they will here and will spread to my other presences from there.
