Inktober is Drawing Near!

I am looking forward to Inktober this year. I had a lot of fun with it last year. I followed the Inktober prompts as well as my own theme. Each sketch was from a horror/monster movie. This year I am thinking about doing something similar. I enjoy sticking with a horror theme to get geared up for Halloween! I have started a list of legendary monsters that I think I will stick to this year. Although, I do have another idea that I might change to at the last minute.

The official prompt list has been released and a lot of the prompts tie in with my legendary monsters so that will make things easier. Although it is always fun to try and come up with a creative idea that relates to the prompt.

This will be my fourth year participating in Inktober. Here are a few of my favorite sketches from previous years.

It’s nice to compare my work and see how I have improved over the years and also areas where I could still improve. It’s all about getting better, right? Practice makes perfect!

Inktober 2018 – Stretch

i26

I’ve been trying to incorporate a double meaning into my sketches this Inktober but this one has a triple meaning! First and most obvious, Adam’s face is “stretched” out. Secondly, it’s a slight “stretch” in topic seeing how I’ve been following a horror movie theme and Beetlejuice…well, it’s not exactly a horror. A lastly, like it says in the line “We’re ghosts! Aren’t we scary?” No, Adam, no. You and Barbara are not scary. To say that you are is a bit of a “stretch”. Sorry. Though, they are new at the ghost thing so we should cut them some slack for trying! Hope you enjoy!
