And here comes the end of Inktober 2015! This is composed of three parts because I was somewhat slow to upload them here, so let’s jump right in to the first set.
The first set, 21 to 24 is all related to Natural Selection 2. I totally have had a lot of fun playing it over the past year or two, so had to draw it as well. Initially I was going to do all 5 of the alien lifeforms but I was hindered by the fact that the sketchbook I was working in was going to run out of pages before the last image! I didn’t want to break up the set over two sketchbooks so I decided to pick the ones that I generally played — and then add in the MAC to represent the marines. Thus, here’s the skulk, gorge, and lerk that I ended up doing. I really like how the MAC came out especially though. Definitely one of my favorites from all of my Inktober images.
Next up, parrots! I went through and picked a whole flock of them. In order, a budgie, Meyer’s parrot, Hahn’s macaw, blue & gold macaw, red rump parakeet, and alexandrine parakeet. By now, everyone should know I like birds, gee.
My final image for Inktober, however, didn’t exactly have the greatest start. It took me a while to decide what to do since I decided I was going to do a full page spread (versus the half page per image I was using for all the previous ones). I ended up going with one of my dragons from Flight Rising.
Looks nice, right? Well, let me note that all the fixes I did on it were done traditionally with acrylic paint. So it’s not 100% ink like previous ones.. But why would I need fixes in the first place? Because I spilled black ink over a reasonable sized chunk of it courtesy of a not-quite-closed container. I think I cleaned it up pretty nice! I will probably do a minor digital cleanup pass at some point too, but at this point, I’d rather just leave it at the minimally edited version.
Anyway, that brings Inktober to an end. I’ll hopefully have some new projects posted soon!
