Title: Inktober Week 3 Summary
Artist: [personal profile] mific 
Rating: G
Fandoms: SGA and Captain America
Characters/Pairings: Teyla Emmagan, teenage Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Ronon Dex, Bucky Barnes
Content Notes: I decided to try inking watercolour techniques rather than pencil sketches this week, using black watercolour paint as ink (and white watercolour paint in the Ronon one because I suck at leaving blank paper as my white areas). The three SGA ones were also done for the "Supernatural" prompt at the [community profile] whatif_au  comm, and the Bucky one was inspired by a pic of a raven on tumblr. That one I inked with a brush, as I hadn't tried that before - the SGA ones were inked with markers. So, fun to test out some new techniques, but I suck at doing smaller, more manageable works - they always get away on me - but I managed four pieces this past week.

Fandom: Avatar: Legend of Korra, Firefly, Aquaman (DCU), Mad Max: Fury Road
Characters/Pairings: Korra, Serenity, Aquaman, Imperator Furiosa
Content Notes: For the third week, I decided to try India ink and brush. I checked out a whole bunch of really helpful tutorials on YouTube, and managed to produce 4 pieces this week. In the final piece, I overlaid acrylic paint with the India ink.

I found that unlike watercolour, India Ink has a certain density about it, that gives a gorgeous matte finish when applied heavily, but also makes it far more difficult to lift off the page once it's been applied. I have had the best time looking at vids and trying out the ink drop technique. What a cool effect! :)

Title: Inktober - Days 16-22
Artist[personal profile] jainas 
Rating: PG
Fandom: Discworld by Terry Pratchett and Toy Story (both in a very roundabout way), classical french poetry, original art
Characters: none
Content Notes: I was a day late for most of the end of the week, as I was very tired. But thinking about my inktober, planning my quotes and doing the drawings kept me going during a few difficult days.
Plenty of animals this week, a few fumbles with text placements, one major offence to Victor Hugo, and I started reusing some technics.
Next week I will try illustrating more scenes from books.

Also I'm meeting my one of my favorite authors in November : Guy Gavriel Kay, and the day I will see him will be his birthday, so I'm kinda planning to draw a scene from one of his book and give it to him...

Only I don't know what book and what quote, and what if the drawing isn't good enough?
I'm very stressed! >_<

Yes! Managed to finish my 4th piece for this week. \o/

Title: Furious(a)

Rating: G
Fandom: Mad Max: Fury Road
Characters/Pairings: Imperator Furiosa
Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 21, word prompt: Furious. Furiosa. Of course. I had to! *g* This was done in three layers: first a pencil sketch with a bit of shading, then a wash of acrylic paint, then India ink over all of that.

I wasn't really sure how this would turn out, so I stopped and took pics at every stage, just in case I ruined it in the next step. :b So I've included a couple of the WiP photos under the cut tag as well. :)

Forever chasing these prompts... :b

Title: Deep
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
Fandom: DCU, Aquaman
Characters/Pairings: Aquaman (Arthur Curry)
Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 20, word prompt: Deep. I am SO EXCITED about Jason Momoa as the new Aquaman. Painted with Indian Ink. In addition to the ink drop, I tried a couple other techniques - scraping the paper afterwards to reveal small patches of white, and using salt crystals to create a rough texture.

Since it's an underwater scene, I've included a second version with a blue digital tint. I *love* the effect - that wash of colour really makes it come alive! :)

I always seem to be a day or two behind on these... :b

Title: Cloud

Fandom: Firefly
Characters/Pairings: Serenity
Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 19, word prompt: Cloud. Serenity soaring above the clouds. ^___^ Painted with Indian Ink, using a combination of regular brush work for the clouds and the Ink Drop technique for all the rest. I've included a second version with slight digital tint.

I came across another really cool tutorial type vid: PAINTING MOONS with Indian Ink, and it inspired me to try my hand at this piece.

Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 17, word prompt: Graceful. This is my very first attempt at using India Ink with a paintbrush. I found the following video on YouTube to be particularly helpful: How to Draw and Paint Animals with Water: Ink Drip Technique.

The ink drip technique is SO COOL! I only have black ink right now, but would love to get my hands on other colours. So in addition to the original piece, I've also included a digital blue-tinted version below, which I rather like. :)

This vid would've needed more time to simmer and a couple good rounds of betaing to give it the depth I really wanted it to have, but I started too late and had about 2 days to finish it, so it's mostly just my raw, unfiltered, un-beta'd Roci team feels. Which, now that a few more days have passed, I am actually okay with! I'm glad that people got some joy out of it :)
