MerMay – post block – Days 01 – 10

I thought it’d be fun to do #MerMay. I felt challenged by being part of the Comic Artists Unite Discord and then seeing Jen519 post about it on Instagram.

You’ll notice a sudden shift in quality as these go forward. I realized that the goal I wanted to accomplish was “completing” the challenge as in producing thirty-one drawings of mer-folk. To that end I have decided to worry less about the “quality” of the drawings over all. As in get them done first, get the speed up, and then if you like one go back and make it “gud”.

Hope you all enjoy!

Inktober 2018 – 01 poisonous

I’m a sucker for Posion Ivy from Batman the Animated Series so my first thought when “poisonous” was the prompt, was to draw her.

There was a request for a second drawing so I pulled out the old Tiny Things book. And it was curiously appropriate if you consider Snow White.

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.
