InkTober Week 3

This week I did even more cards for coworkers – Boss’s Day plus a couple of birthdays.  So that cut into my InkTober arting just a bit.  However, I also finished a painting that had been sitting for oh, ten years or so, and did some digital stuff.  I’m still fascinated by clouds and never cease to be amazed by them.  Who cares about the latest entertainment news when I have Omigawd CLOUDS!  That one is a perfect orangy pink and I could totally do that with a liner brush and just a little blending… it looks like brushstrokes across the sky as it is…

On to the art.

InkTober is back!

As you may know, InkTober is an annual event where visual artists of all types commit to making art every day.  Some are strict about it, saying you should use ink specifically, others are a little looser about the standards.

I got a bunch of my coworkers into this and we have a fairly nice InkTober gallery wall started.  If you are joining me, feel free to leave a link in my comments, I’d love to see what you do!

This year I’m not doing a post every day, but rather with each post I’ll be putting all the art I’ve done up until that point.  So far I have five drawings and a quick digital paint sketch.

Surrealist Inktober

How much of horror art is surrealist?  Quite a bit.  When I try to make a surreal piece of art, I will take some aspect of reality and make it into a metaphor, or take a fairly realistic subject then change an aspect of it in order to make some kind of a statement.

Here are my attempts:

 

I had the idea of combining two graceful shapes, and at the same time making a statement of people becoming display pieces.  At least she seems fairly happy the way she is.

 

The next one is about how I think people often become with their smartphones and tablets.  Perhaps it’s a vision of human evolution?

 

The last picture is of GUITAR FINGERS.  The hand of a well trained guitarist can look pretty surreal as it is.

Inktober Day 4 – new banner!

The banner needed updating, so I did that today, as well as creating a color version.

Here’s the black and white version, in the original ink:

And here’s the color version!

Interested in drawing again – Inktober day 3
