INKtober day twenty (!!!)
medium, thin / street clothing / human female, young / thin sword
The moment this prompt popped up I seized the chance to draw one of my already-established characters (who turns ten next year. Ten!) Trying to finally get a set look/style down before she finally gets to (co-)star in a comic… got a ways to go yet, but things are headed in a decent direction. I think. Ah, character development…

INKtober day nineteen
medium, built / military / bird-like / shield
I think I’ve reached the point where I’m finally starting to lose it
…I had to fight the temptation to simply draw Captain America as an anthropomorphized eagle. Or something.

INKtober day seventeen
short, medium / tunic (whoops, misremembered it as robes), long / demonic grotesque / book
Definitely a weak one… it’s been a long day. Nice thing about INKtober is tomorrow’s another day.

INKtober day sixteen - officially past the halfway point!
medium, thin / formal / human w/ animal features / broad sword
Unfortunately ended up preferring the initial sketch to the inked piece. Ah well, it’s a risk one runs when working on paper.

INKtober day fifteen
tall, medium / street clothes / cyborg / bow & arrow
My neck is hurting just looking at this one, yikes O.o Not sure what happened there.

mithmeoi said: What type of ink pens do you use? Sorry if you're posted this somewhere and I've missed it. ^^"

No worries, I don’t think I mentioned it yet this INKtober. I’ve been using brushes and dipping ink - weirdly enough, I actually feel like I have a bit more control with a brush than with a brush pen (might be the sable of the brush vs. the synthetic of the pen.) Brush-wise I’ve been alternating between the Winsor & Newton Series 7 sizes 1 & 2 (I can get finer lines with the 1, but I feel like the 2 holds more ink at a time. 2 is my main go-to.) As far as ink, I’ve been using Yasutomo Black Sumi Ink (I’ve also used Pelikan ink in the past - I’m undecided as to which I prefer.)

I also use a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for fixing stuff I notice after I’ve cleaned my brush, and white Sharpie Waterbased Paint Pens for additional touch-ups (I have the worst luck with white gel-pens, so I’ve been trying out other pens for adding white.)

Hope that helps! :D

INKtober day fourteen
medium, thin / street clothing / robotic / whip (really? A whip?)
Despite some kerfuffles with the ink, I’m actually pretty pleased with this one. Even if it does look like Robot is punching itself in the head (whoops.)

INKtober day twelve
tall, thin / military / lion/tiger / lantern
outfit shamelessly borrowed (and slightly modified, of course) from Horatio Hornblower because I needed to put my reference folder of Horatio pics to use in someway or another (someday for fanart, but alas today is not that day.)
