Wrapping up Inktober 2018

Here are my last couple of sketches for Inktober 2018. I will be doing a larger ink drawing, but I haven’t decided yet what it will be. Still trying to get the enlightment. I’ve been looking at a lot of Arthur Reckham drawings, so I will be using ink washes. When I compare this year’s drawings with last year’s inktober drawings I see an improvement, which gives me motivation to keep going.

Inktober days 17 to 21

Wrapping up Inktober. I somehow always seem to fall back on movies or video games that I’ve seen. I’m finishing up a painting I’ve been working on, just a few touch ups and I’ll be finished.

Thanks for stopping by,

Inktober installment 3

Hey, hey, I’m getting into this. I’ve decided to buy a small sketchbook just for ink doodles. I tried a few ink washes on the whale and it turned out better then I thought it would. I admit my Count doku doesn’t really look like him, but oh well I still like it.

See you guys later,

Bill

Inktober installment 2.

Hi-ho, heres my inktober installment 2 days 6-11. I like these challenges, it sort of takes out the indecision of what you will draw. It takes away some time from my painting though. I think I will be able to show my latest painting at the end of this week, going in for the kill.

Thanks for stopping by,

The Inktober challenge is here.

Hey people, as some of you might know every October hundreds if not thousands of artist do the Inktober challenge. Every day (there is a different theme everyday) one should draw in ink and post it. Its mainly about practicing and getting better using ink, but mostly its about having fun with the medium. Heres my contribution days 1-5.

See you around,

Bill

Sketchbook post.

What would life be like without my sketchbook, probably a lot more boring.

Figure studies

Hey people, starting another painting. Here’s the charcoal and chalk underdrawing. I do these to improve my skills and try out different techniques. I noticed a big improvement in my paintings and drawing. I still work on fantasy and science fiction paintings, I’m currently working on my first night scene.

Thanks for stopping by,

Pencil drawing: Odin seeks Mimir’s advice.

Hey everyone, here is my rendition of Odin talking to Mimir, you know the head that he kept around to ask for advice once in a while. Because that’s what Norse gods do.

I’ll be painting over this in Artrage. I find I lose a little of the dynamic when I transfer a drawing and then paint over it. I’ll still be painting with oils though.

Thanks for stopping by,

Tablet Sketching.

I bought a tablet last week with the expressed wish to sketch with it. I downloaded a couple of sketch apps and started going to town. I settled on the preinstalled Artrage app, I had already used it on my PC so I was sort of used to it. Now when I’m sitting around I grab the tablet and sketch something.

Thanks for looking in,

Bill

Odin study

Odin study-web

 

I’ve been wanting to paint Odin for a while now. I really like to read mythology not only norse but also greek and Roman. I wanted a cool Odin though not just the skinny traveler with the raven and floppy hat (I drew that also) but an Odin that you could tell he would screw your shit up in second if he wanted to. I think I’ll keep this version of him, I just have to figure out the rest now.

Thanks for stopping in,

Bill
