After Inktober

This has been sitting as a draft on my blog for one month. Oops.

Anyway, after my trip last October, I wanted to do some drawing prompts again to keep my skills sharp. I found prompts from 2016 Inktober and went with those does few days.

Day 1: "fast" (asleep) - Lance, Voltron


Day 2: Noisy - Hanji, Attack on Titan


Day 3: Collection - Young Alfor and Coran, Voltron


Day 4: Hungry - Shiro and Allura, Voltron

Yeah that turned self indulgent end but I'm not sorry.

Hopefully it won't be as long between updates this time.

The Last of Inktober (Finally)

So exactly one month later I'm remembering to post the rest of what I drew in October. It wasn't a lot but I did spend the last week of the month on a trip and chose not to sweat over making any art happen.

Inktober Day 10: "Gigantic" (not fanart, just something cute)

Inktober Day 9 was Screech but I did Day 21's "Furious" instead. Poor Keith


Inktober Day 11: Shatter: Shiro from Voltron and heavy symbolism
Inktober Day 14: Fierce: Pidge from Voltron because she is that

More Inktober - Violence Warning for Last Image

NOTE: The final image is going to be at the bottom with a large amount of space between it and the others. This will make it easy to avoid.

So I was mistaken and I only filled twelve Inktober prompts, but that's okay. I had fun and they were great practice. Again, mostly Voltron fanart with a single Attack on Titan piece. 

As last time I'll just give the prompt and a short explanation.

005 Long: As in "long day"


007 Shy: A little baby Galra Keith hiding behind Kolivan


008 Crooked: A good excuse to draw Hanji with a crooked grin

The last pic will be down below this. Next time will be the rest of the Inktober fills.




















006 Sword: Based on events revealed in season 3 of Voltron

A Little Inktober

I did say last time that I'd post the fruit of my Inktober labors, so here's the first few. All but one of the things I drew last month are fanart but I'm totally okay with that. But I do feel like I sometimes over-explain drawings so I'll just give the prompts and a short sentence with each drawing.


#1 Swift: Makes me thing of water moving swiftly.


 #2 Shattered: Some phantom limb pains going on here


 #3 Poison

#4 Underwater: Hanji from Attack on Titan as an octopus mermaid

I only filled thirteen prompts, but I stopped because I was about to go on vacation and I wanted this to be fun and not stressful anyway.

More to come soon!

Nothing Inktober Yet

I mentioned in the last entry that I would be participating in Inktober this year, and so far I have been. Honestly I'm impressed that I've managed to fill a prompt every day so far. But before I start posting those drawings, I want to put up the ones I finished before this started.


First up, an adorable couple from Voltron: Legendary Defender. I spent a Saturday working on this sketch of Hunk (the human) and his rock alien girlfriend, Shay. They have such an adorable relationship that I just had to draw them at some point. I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. Especially because it turns out they're both super fun to draw.
                    


This one I just did for some digital art practice and to pull myself out of an art funk. Eren from Attack on Titan. It's a... grim show for those who didn't know. Though for context's sake, he was saving a kidnapped girl. ...Let's move on.



Lastly, another fun Voltron art of Shiro and Pidg wearing these lion backpacks. The space mall background is a screenshot from the show because I am not that ambitious.


Next time there will be some Inktober sketches, though I'm not sure when that will be. Season four of Voltron drops on Netflix this Friday and I may be an emotional wreck.

Violet Sunrise

This is the most work that I have put into a drawing in a very long time. Months at least. It's also the most time I've spent on a Voltron drawing so far. For now I'm still very proud of it, so I'm presenting it in a blog entry all by itself.

The idea behind it is that Allura is kissing Shiro awake, like a brave princess waking her knight.


With this, I am almost caught up posting the drawings I have saved on my computer. However, I'm also going to be attempting to do Inktober, so that should help boost me along. Or at least, attempting until my trip on the 21st.

See you next time!

I Am A Bean! (Also There's Voltron Art)

Once upon a time I had an original character whom I used to depict myself. But over the last few years I've outgrown her, I guess. The need to draw myself as a character with a story just doesn't exist anymore, and I didn't have an actual caricature of myself to draw just for fun and silliness.

And then a friend called me a bean (out of endearment) and I had to make the Liz-Bean a reality. So here she is. She's fun and simple to draw, which makes for a great way to loosen up while I'm drawing.





July 28th was Lance's birthday, so as is now customary I drew him with his Lion, Blue. Looks like he's feeling a bit homesick though, poor thing.


A couple friends of mine really enjoy the concept as Shiro as a strong, tough woman, so I indulged them by trying to conceptualize that. We're all pleased with the result. She looks adorable but strong, I think.


Lastly a quick Lance drawing inspired by the lid on my microwave soup cup... because it's something he'd wear. For optimal flirting. With that shirt and finger guns he can't lose.
