Inktober 2019 Day 13: Ash

Inktober 2019 Day 13 Ash

We’ve reached unlucky 13 and it’s a dozy of an unlucky number for the subject in today’s drawing. I love H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds. It gave true horror of alien invasion and total annihilation.

Our subject is being hit by a mechanized beings heat ray and being burnt into ash as they try to surrender to the invading machine.

I had a lot of fun making this one. I did the base drawing with an HB pencil and did the outline again using a ink well pen. But this time I used some felt tip chiseled pens to add the burnt bones and singing skin lines. Then added some bright ray color using tombow markers. I decided to gray scale the everything else except the heat ray and fires set off by it. Then to throw in some extra ash I added some charcoal and smudged it to all around the poor subject being vaporized into ash.

See you tomorrow for day 14, Overgrown.
