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.

Title: Inktober - Week 3
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
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! >_<

Title: inktober: week 2
Artist: syntheid
Rating: G? PG? There is a dead bird in one of them, but it's not particularly gorey or anything.
Fandom: n/a
Characters/Pairings: original
Content Notes: Aforementioned dead bird is... I think the main thing? More ink washes, dramatic shadows, referenced studies, and experimenting.

Post on my journal.

Continuing my series of Stargate Atlantis characters and their daemons, illustrating Daemonology by [personal profile] trinityofone  - although only Marshall and his German shepherd dog were in the story. The rest of the daemons I'm inventing. My reason for choosing the various daemons is noted below each thumbnail, if you're interested. I'm trying to develop techniques to speed up the process, as I don't have things that pro artists have, like a lightbox. Still overdoing the cross-hatching - I haven't worked out yet how to convey dark colours without multiple layers of that. 

They're all on my AO3 in a single chapterized work, here.

chapter links under the cut ) 
I'm not sure that I can manage the whole month now as work's going to get very busy soon with three big beta-reading tasks that I have to do by a tight deadline. *Sigh*. I'd much rather be arting.

Rating: G
Fandom: The Flash (TV, 2014), Thor: Ragnarok
Characters/Pairings: The Flash, Captain Cold, Valkyrie
Content Notes: For the second week, I switched from ballpoint pen to marker. Way more challenging, especially trying to get more subtle shading and textures, however it gave me a chance to play around with positive-negative space. I only did 4 pieces, but I really had a lot of fun with these. I used the Official prompt list for all this week. :)

I just took what was around me or whatever was on my mind and just drew each picture. Inspired by the world or my mind. Didn't draw anything on Days 13, 14 or 15. Will start up again tomorrow, plus I've subscribed to a monthly box called Scrawlrbox which basically is a box of different pens etc (source: http://scrawlrbox.uk) and it will come in the next few days - can't wait!

Sadly I just didn't make time for this every day... kind of forgot and went to bed! I did manage three pieces that are really little more than doodles:
