Week 2 of Inktober

On we go to week 2 of Inktober. If you missed my sketches from week 1, check them out in this previous post.

For those who don’t know – Inktober is an artist’s challenge to draw in ink every day in October. Usually, people create prompt lists. I pick a theme and draw to it. This year’s theme is characters from my stories! These are from comics, written work, Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, and other places.

Let’s get into what I drew for Week 2.

Day 7

Gunter, a half-human, half-Uther from my upcoming comic, The Uthers. I’ll be working on the second draft of this story for National Novel Writing Month next month!

Day 7 is Gunter, a half-man, half-uther from the upcoming comic, The Uthers. Here we see a young man with some thicker muscles, pointed ears, and white skin with tinges of green on the joints. His hands and face look human, but his feet have clawed toes. He wears a gray toga and blue cape with light green trim on it. His horns are turquoise and his helmet is deep green.

Day 8

Avery Johnson, from my webcomic Johnson & Sir. I MIGHT bring the book back into print. But if I do, there will be some big changes. (They may be big enough to warrant a second edition and a crowdfunding campaign to get it done).

Day 9

Jamie Roberts, from The Legend of Jamie Roberts. If you haven’t read the comic by now, you really should. It’s free to read online.

Day 10

Virgil Weiss, from my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. He’s my bard player’s love interest. A diehard romantic, he’s enamored with Malus’ love story.

Day 11

Fuloos Abieris, from (working title) Fwishi’shi. I finished writing the rough draft on Monday (Jeff yeah!). He’s a biographer and radio show host who lives by the sea.

Day 12

Kay, from my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. The Last Valkyrie alive, they are also a Sage of the Void and sworn enemy of the Angels of Jehovah. Kay’s on a quest to rescue their mother from their clutches and kill Viktor the Arch Throne.

Day 13

Viktor the Arch Throne, from my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. The Angel who stole Kay’s mother. His arm had been torn off by Malus (from Day 6 last week). His quest is to kill Malus and Kay.

In his only hand he holds a massive bastard sword with a face in the hilt and an eye in the pommel. He has two sets of wings, one of which has golden eyes staring out. Over his head are three nested halos covered in eyeballs.

Come back Sunday at 2 pm EST! I’m drawing more Inktober sketches live on YouTube. Feel free to lurk while I work.

And be sure to come back next Thursday for the sketches from Week 3!

The characters this week are in stories I talk about in more depth with my Digital Club Members. You can Subscribe for a month here, or get a 6-month subscription on Ko-Fi. Either way, you’ll get access to scripts, sketches, and story previews no one else sees.

That’s all for now. Thank you for stopping by!

Week 1 of Inktober

Inktober is an artist’s challenge to draw in ink every day during October. Usually, artists will follow an official prompt list, or make their own.

I don’t do that. I pick a theme and draw to it.

In 2017, I drew Witches. In 2018, Gods & Spirits. 2019 – Dragons. Then I collected those sketches into books. In 2020, I drew Landscapes and Cats. 2021 – I drew a comic panel every day and it became Puzzlespell (coming to PDF very soon).

This year, I’m drawing my characters! These folks are from my comics, written works, and roleplaying games. At the end of the month, I fully intend on collecting these sketches into a new art book.

Without further ado, I’d like to share with you the first week of Inktober sketches – up to Day 6.

Here’s Day 1 – Acrudon, a former demon turned human from The Case of the Wendigo and the upcoming Vanita & The Demon King (working title).

inktober day 1 show s a sketchbook page. In it stands a bearded man in a tacky shirt and baggy red pants carrying a box of sundries.

Follow that up with Day 2 – Claudia, a witch and Acrudon’s partner from The Case of the Wendigo and the upcoming Vanita & The Demon King (working title).

inktober day 2 is a young woman in a dress covered in cloud patterns. She has red hair and a pregnant belly.

Then, Day 3 – Vanita, a witch from the upcoming Vanita & The Demon King (working title).

inktober day 3 shows a pale young trans woman in a camisole and jogging shorts.

Here’s Day 4 – Clow, a guardian angel from Charlie & Clow, Charlie & Clow: The Bonus Arc, The Case of the Wendigo, and the upcoming Vanita & The Demon King (working title).

On Day 5 – Basho’s twin brother, [REDACTED], a dragon from The Legend of Jamie Roberts. (By the way, volume 1 is available in my shop).

Finally, for this week, Day 6 – Prince Malus, a shadow elf from my current campaign of Dungeons & Dragons. He also stars in The Prince of Shadows (a work in progress).

More sketches will be shared next Thursday! In the meantime, keep an eye on my Instagram and YouTube channels. I do live streams on those platforms showing off how I draw these sketches.

That’s all for now. Thank you for checking in!

Seeing Him PDF Now Available for Download!

the cover for seeing him, a transgender romantic comedy comic. On it we see a city skyline in negative silhouette. Walking below it are a young woman and a transgender man, smiling and holding hands.
Seeing Him Written by Kai and Drawn by me. June 2015.

Seeing Him is the story of Kate, a roller skating rink owner, and Adam, a transgender doctor, who fall in love and start making a life together. Also, shenanigans ensue.

Since its publication online in 2015, Seeing Him has had two homes – both of which, unfortunately, ended up closing down.

But the third time’s the charm! Seeing Him is now available as a PDF download in my Ko-Fi shop for $1.

As an addendum: In the original webcomic run of the story, a page in Chapter 2 had a deeply negative reception. After a review of the comic, I – Kelci – have elected to remove this page from the final product. This is because the page in question did not impact the rest of the story in any meaningful way. I have done this for the comfort of the reader, and to reflect the growth of the author and artist behind this project.

So if you have the means, get the PDF comic over on Ko-Fi!

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!
