Inktober 30-31: Happy Halloween!

Inktober17.30

“Supermassive Black Hole,” Muse

Inktober17.31

“These Are Our Children,” I Monster

With the skua for In Cold Blood, and the leopard seal for Supermassive Black Hole, you’d think I really have a thing for (or a grudge against) penguins, but honestly they’re easy to draw and there are a lot of “cold” metaphors in my spooky playlist. Also the “black hole,” in this case, made me think of a seal’s breathing hole in the ice. Finally, I need to stop drawing half-tilted heads, because I can NOT line up the eyes and nostrils properly when I’m in a hurry.

Happy spookytimes everyone, thanks for stopping by!

“Bad Moon Rising,” Mourning Ritual + Peter Dreimanis

Inktober17.28

“You’re Dead,” Norma Tanega

Inktober17.29

“Devils,” Say Hi

I allowed myself one do-over this time, because “Devils” is waaaay shorter than I thought it was, and I didn’t draw fast enough. On a somewhat related note, I’m digging the Spotify skin for the Stranger Things playlist.

Inktober 22-24

I got a bit distracted actually listening to “Cold Cold Cold,” which resulted in more of a rush job than usual, but no takesies-backsies and no do-overs!

The ominous knife-wielder accidentally wound up being a leftie, but we’ll just say that’s because I wanted to make the picture more … sinister. [ba-dum-tish]

“Run,” AWOLNATION

Inktober17.23

“Cold Cold Cold,” Cage the Elephant

Inktober17.24

“Trouble,” Adam Agin

Inktober 19-21

Last week’s zooarchaeology assignment involved sorting out deer bones, which may account for the subject matter of that last picture. (I did try to make it look like the former “king” may have succumbed from a hoof to the skull, though.)

“Lullaby,” Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes

“Cask of Amontillado,” Alan Parsons Project

Inktober17.16

“Locked in the Basement,” Fredrik

Inktober17.17

“White Flag,” The Romanovs

Inktober17.18

“Enter Sandman,” SHEL

That last song was inconsiderate enough to be less than 3 minutes long, I didn’t even have time for slapdash shading like in “White Flag.” By contrast, “Locked in the Basement” was six minutes long and got the full scribble treatment.

Inkdump Pt. 3

Aaaand the final five, catching us up to the present day. It’s a pity I don’t really know how to draw a skua (at least, not in 3 minutes and 26 seconds), because that’s where I was going with today’s for In Cold Blood.
