Monday Evening Post

Hey guys! Bea here! Hope everyone had a good weekend πŸ™‚

So, last time I posted I intended to share the last character sketch on Thursday, but then I realized,Thursday was the holiday…and somehow in a mix of eating food and cake and downloading games like Goat Simulator, iiiit just didn’t happen >_<.Β  So I’m doubling up in this post, which means two arts will be shared!

Starting first with one of my Inktober drawings, this one being of me, Bea, all gussied up for Halloween!

As some of you may know, it wasn’t an official costume, but I did my hair to make it look like I had kitty ears, wore dark eyeliner and lipstick, painted my nails, wore extra jewelry and went out in a gray dress and boots with mah pea coat!Β  An unofficial costume that turned out well, if I do say so myself πŸ™‚

I have to be honest though– this is not my exact likeness. Like the other Inktober sketch, it’s small so my pen doesn’t allow me to get all the detail I wanted. More or less, it looks like a cartoon version of me.

Since I’m sharing this though, thought I might add some references photos of…well…, me >_<. I’m very camera shy so it’s hard to get any pics out of me. Like, I literally only do about one selfie session a year, and it’s usually because one of my friends edged me on lol. SO PREPARE TO SEE GOTHIC BEA!

These were all taken last year, while my best friend and I were getting ready for the Halloween party Zy and I hosted on hallows eve.Β  Funny story, we got carried away– and covered ourselves in more makeup, with fake blood and everything. Ironically my mom decided to bring her guy-friend over and instead of just greeting her at the door looking utterly crazy, we greeted them both….and the guy was kinda freaked out lol.

As a bonus, even my dog dressed up in one of many costumes she owns–

Anyway, it’s always weird drawing myself, trying to make sure it looks like me, and for some reason, drawing my hair is really hard for me. But, this ink drawing didn’t turn out too bad πŸ™‚


 

Now for the second part of this post– The final character sketch in Seth’s Commission- the Skorrin

The Skorrin is a ghoulish race– but, look more unfriendly than they actually are. Kind of a situation where you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Of all of them, I think I like Skorrin the most because I feel like they’re the underdog.

In terms of his design, I intentionally left the sketch very sketchy, to make him look more ominous and rugged.

So there you have it!

Now all that’s left to do is share the other Inktober sketches– in due time πŸ˜€ That said, hope you enjoyed this post, and till next time, Enjoy!

 

Sketchbook Exclusives- Inktober Concepts

Hey guys! Bea here, and this time, we have Inktober concepts!

Just a little note– The sketches I’m showing are a cross between traditional and digital– which came about when I moved pencil drawings in my sketch book to my computer to play around with layout, and ideas (mostly because I value my paper, and I’ve already scribbled through a enough pages fleshing things out)– So all the sketches you’ll be seeing today are not my final ink drawings, but instead, references that I printed out for myself after I finished toying with them on the computer.

By the way, my camera kinda sucks so they aren’t the sharpest shots, and I took them all a bit slanted to hide some details, but, lets get started!

inPrin3The concept here is, instead of leading mice away from the city, this pied piper leads a slew of monsters/demons into your dreams. I drew this at least 4 times before I came to my final composition, mostly because I couldn’t figure out what angle I wanted to show the piper in. And due to the amount of detail I anticipate will be in it, I’ve had to do quite a bit of research. By far though, He’s my favorite πŸ˜€

I know a lot of different people come to my blog, so, I like to give warnings if, and when I’m posting something a bit NSFW. That said, this next one is a bit racy, so, avert your eyes if you feel the need too. Just know, you’ve been warned!

inPrin2Like all of these, I took the photo in a way that it hides some of the details,but, just think Vampire! Like Piper, this one went through quite a few revisions. The poses are very difficult to draw, for one, but originally this started as a phantom of the opera concept that just seemed better suited as you see it now…for practical reasons o.o. I actually drew this entirely in pencil and was ready to ink too, but then I realized that the perspective the girl on top made nooooo sense lol. Only after making some extra muddy sketches and pulling out my 3d software to pose some figures for to get a reference, was I able to get the concept right. So far– this one has been the hardest one to do.

And last– but, not intended to be least, we have Me, Bea! dressed up for Halloween πŸ˜€

inPrin1Looking back on my life, I’ve come to the sad realization that I have never had– or owned a Halloween costume….nope– not ever. I’ve dressed up for Halloween in random sheets, at the most, but never had a real costume. This year is no different. Didn’t have one– so when Zygona asked me what I’d be, I said I’d be Bea!

We had a few events that we were going too, so after getting dressed, I looked in the mirror– then at the mascara on the counter, then in the mirror– and then I started drawing on mah face!

Long story short, I put on a little makeup, did my hair up in two little buns atop my head to look like cat ears, painted my finger nails black, wore my stones and several necklaces, a long dress, leather boots, a black coat– and showed up and was like “Hey guys! I’m a black cat- witch, thing, person!!”

Overall, I really liked my get up, I thought it was cool, so I decided to draw myself wearing it for Inktober!

Before I close out this post, there is another drawing I started for inktober, which features yours truly *bats eyelashes* , however I’m saving for a later post, once I have time to complete it the way I envision it.

inkpen1That’s it for today folks! Some of my final Inktober sketches might come a bit late, but Just wanted to share what’s goin’ on in my humble sketchbook!

More posts featuring Seth’s Character Designs coming soon! Till next time, Enjoy πŸ˜€
