#Inktober Day 20: Deep

Today I went into the realm of #FanArtFriday with a quick sketch of Drago from Animal Crossing. Quick background story: I love New Leaf! I watch a lot of Sugar's Twitch streams and she was looking for her lost amiibo card. I joked that he ran away. I like to think that these villagers aren't so cute and cuddly and secretly want to abandon their mayor's towns and lead a thug life. Anyway, fan art consumed me. I think Drago went on a crime spree. Oh my.

I used a Graphgear 500 0.9mm drafting pencil to begin, followed by a Skillcraft Vista Gel Ink. Craz color pencils.

Enjoy.

Bookspine 365 Day 46 "The Dovekeepers" by Alice Hoffman

"The Dovekeepers"by Alice Hoffman

I never expected to purchase this book, and the cover design caught my eye. I read the back and was immediately intrigued.

"Nearly two thousand years ago, nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on Masada a mountain in the Judean desert. According to the ancient historian Josephus, two women and five children survived."
That tale alone is enough to dive deeper into history, discover lives deeper than fiction and learn about their tales. Who are the dovekeepers? What are their mysteries, secrets, lineage?

Bookspine 365: Day 45 "The Giver" by Lois Lawry

The Giver by Lois Lowry

This softcover edition I own sits on the shelf, among the others as a used book. It's quite beautiful to look at. I hope one day my son reads it. To my understanding its required reading in many schools, with the dystopian style and conflict brought upon humans. I quite liked the length. It still looks brand new, practically no wear and tear and the spine and cover are quite glossy. There are a few annotations and underlines, barely noticeable.

#Inktober Day 19 A revisit to Alice in Wonderland

Curiouser and Curiouser.

Today I revisited Alice in Wonderland and added the Burtonesque type of style with the classic "drink me" scene. Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz are two of my most favorite books EVER. I love the surrealism, fantasy, the beauty. The original artwork panels are to die for!


Enjoy. I used Pentel Drafting Pencil 0.9mm Graph Gear 500 series for a rough draft. I followed up with XTank Pro 0.7mm Rollerball pen. I also used a Sharpie oil based fine point pen. For water colors, Reeves was used on Lowe Cornell watercolor paper.

#Inktober Day 18: Filthy

Today's prompt is filthy. First person came to mind:

John fucking Zoidberg. But...in stripclub. Getting paid. Cause he can. 
I used Japanese brush ink, 0.7mm rollerball pens, lots of gel inks, and colored pencils.  Strathmore Sketch  9 x 12 inch preforated pad was used, has a fine tooth surface.  Enjoy.

Bookspine 365: Day 44 "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton

The Outsidersby S.E. Hinton

Frequently known as the coming of age book where required reading and losing your locker combination went hand in hand, almost everyone I knew shed a tear or two from this tale. Enter the "Socs" the rich uppity kids who formed a gang and beat up on "Greasers" whom I always thought were normal and just had a few hard times. Enter dark memes for you whippersnappers, but Ponyboy was the best character ever. He was cool without trying to be, smooth all the time. Then one night...something goes a bit too far. You'll find out.

Anyway, you have to have this on your bookshelf. Forever. This softcover copy I purchased second hand. It has bonus material inside, which includes a Q&A with the author.

And yes. The book is always better. The movie was pretty good too though.
