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).

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).

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!

The Legend of Jamie Roberts’ Newest Print

Awwww yeah! This print got finished not too long ago to showcase my new upcoming webcomic, The Legend of Jamie Roberts. (Coming online mid- to late-November.)

Illustrated here, from foreground to background, is Jamie Roberts, Ragun Ranki (pronounced Rah-Goon Ra-N-key), and the dragon shape of Ragun Basho (pronounced Rah-Goon Bah-show).

This took a little while to illustrate, especially with the waves of The Way in the background. The Way is the spirit world, where souls rest after death and before birth, and where Ranki was banished after The War of the Leaders 500 years before the start of the Legend.

Here’s some clips of the progress of the piece:

The colors of the background and Ranki were done in Clip Studio Paint to save me some marker ink.

This image will do double-duty as both a print and as the cover art for Chapter 1’s online serialization.

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