So Inktober 2015 is finally INKTOVER. This year, although I had planned to do four separate weekly challenges, I ended up focusing on just the first one for the entire month, but I made sure that I did lots of sketching with a brushpen to hone other inky skills as well. I'd originally decided to use only a brush for my Inktober challenges, as I ink with brushpens for this blog almost every day, and I ended up inking all of the fanart sketches I'd drawn in September and October as part of my quest to find a B-Style.
Every character I drew for Inktober is a character that has inspired or influenced my work or my professional outlook (except for the self portrait at the end).
All of these were inked on cold press watercolor paper with a Creative Mark Rhapsody brush using Kuretake India Ink. These are my uncorrected scans- to see the real version, keep an eye out for the Inktober 2015 mini I'm putting together! I plan on watercoloring these later on, so keep an eye out or that too! I have some video recorded for a handful of these, the video will be underneath the inks.
All of these inks (and 10 new ones) are included in my new mini comic, Favorite Fictional Femmes, which will be available for purchase from me, in person, at NOCAZfest at the New Orleans Public Library. All proceeds go to keeping my lights on, and feeding my cat and myself.
