November Artwork

November Artwork

Some artwork I’ve been doing since Inktober. No real common theme or anything. Just artwork I did usually with Sharpie Markers or Micron Pens.

November 5, 2020: Steam Locomotive chugging through a forest in the middle of fall.
November 6, 2020: A new rendition of a drawing I’ve done in the past. Two leaves fighting as they fall.
November 10, 2020: An H.P. Lovecraft inspired marker drawing showing cultists summoning a dark one while a bystander looks in terror.
November 12, 2020: A old man of the sea wondering through a dark and spooky forest.
November 13, 2020: Some fan art of a Chozo statue on Tallon IV from the video game Metroid Prime. My wife got me one of those white gel pens and I wanted an excuse to use it. So I tried it out to add some detail to solid shaded areas.
November 17, 2020: A Beaver in front of his kingdom. I’m not really sure what inspired me to make this one but I had fun trying to use different Sharpie markers and Tom Bow Markers to add detail this piece. I really wish Sharpie could figure out how to make another tone of brown.
November 19, 2020: A Railroad in the Underworld. I decided I wanted to punish myself cause I can’t think of any other reason why I thought drawing hundreds of tiny bones lining the tracks. But when I originally posted it on Instagram people seemed to like it. So goes to show that work you hate gets all the likes while projects you put your heart and soul in sometime don’t even get noticed.
November 23, 2020: Headcrab from the video game Half-Life. I was in a gaming mood after playing the Half-Life remake Black Mesa. I thought I’d try my light table and trace a printed image of a head crab and reference draw the details. But this one didn’t get much attention at all when I posted it on social media so I guess I’ll stick to my free hand drawings of creatures I just make up as I draw.
November 29, 2020: A Deer Lord Concept drawing. Decided to go with my gut and make creatures up as I draw them. So this is a deer lord from the front with crazy antlers full of mystical ornaments.
November 29, 2020: A deer lord concept from the side with designs on it’s hood.

Inktober 2020 Day 1: Fish

Inktober 2020 Day 1: Fish

It’s the first day of Inktober 2020. Today’s prompt is Fish and I’ve been wanting to play with all these colored inks I got last Christmas. I have been working on a underwater coloring book and decided to use that as inspiration for this drawing prompt. I really like how it turned out. I drew a basic outline in blue pencil and then drew over it in black ink with my dip pen. To color it in I used my set of India inks.

It's Just Logic: Collateral Damage in Quests
How much Collateral Damage does it take to finish a timed quest before time runs out?

When you retry an unfinished quest and your character is way overpowered.

Timed quests, probably one of the most difficult and annoying quests in any video game. It reminds me of when my mom would come home from getting groceries and yell for me to get the Milk in the fridge first. This never made sense to me since the milk had already been out of the store fridge for half an hour, what’s another 30 seconds. Just like how in a video game where an item that has been sitting there the whole time we were playing, suddenly has a timer saying it will expire in ten minutes as soon as we pick it up.
