Monday Evening Post

Hey guys! Bea here! Hope everyone had a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

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 >_<.ย  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!

BeaCatz

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!ย  An unofficial costume that turned out well, if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ™‚

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.ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚


 

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ That said, hope you enjoyed this post, and till next time, Enjoy!

 

Inktober 2015- Frankette

Trick, Treat….or both?

Ink1

You guys may remember a teaser I posted not too long ago, of my first Inktober sketch in progress–

FrankensteinsMany people thought this was two people, getting a little intimate, as was intended, when seen from a certain angle, but instead of two, it’s just one, and her name is Frankette!

Frankette is technically the piecing together of a male and a female– and There were three sources of inspiration that lead to her design.

  1. Anyone recall the movie from 2002 called May?

    Well if you haven’t, I wont spoil too much– it’s a story about a socially awkward girl who just wants a friend…SPOILER ALERT—-ย  She decides to make one by sewing together the body parts she admired most about the people in her life who shunned her. Seriously, has to be one of the weirdest, creepiest horror films I’ve seen.
  2. This little number!
    Zombie 2
    A very old zombie sketch, that looks very weird to me now, but is basically a bride and groom who loved each other so much– they fused, and not in the cool Steven Universe way >_< So, I wanted to redo it, but in a more practical way.
  3. And last– This gem of a piece I found while looking up references for my burlesque piece–

    This picture threw me for a loop because I thought it was two people until I realized it was one model, in a split outfit, posed in a way that made her appear like two. I loved it– and I thought the concept was perfect to build Frankette off of.

Now I’d like to sit here and pretend that I just whipped my ink drawing out on a whim, but I didn’t. I don’t usually work with pen and ink, for one, and for two– I cant help but plan out my concepts before I get into them– UNLESS I just so happend to be drawing from life. So, here is the original digital sketch of Frankette–

FranketteI posed her, so that if you look at it from the bottom up, your eyes may be fooled into believing it’s two people, aka, the trick. But when you get to her face, you realize it’s one– and she’s pretty, so, lol that’s the treat >_<! Another fun thing a bout Frankette is that the green areas of her body are female,and the blue are male– though mostly covered in the tux side of her body.

When it came time to draw and ink it, I worked in a small 8.5 x 5 moleskin sketchbook, so even though my lines were sharp, the scan came off a bit muddy because of the small scale, so I had to do some touching up on the finish piece in addition to adding a few splashes of color, but if you care to see the bare sketch as in my book, Here ya go ๐Ÿ˜€

FranketteWell I hope you guys like Frankette! She was a joy to draw! Teasers coming soon for the next monster in progress. Till next time, Enjoy!
