Here’s a personal piece I just finished. I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons with my family and I think it’s sad how orcs are depicted as just a bunch of mindlessly aggressive monsters. They have families, right? They must. So, here’s a candid portrait of an orc dad and his offspring.
Over the last couple years, I’ve read several human interest stories about dancers or yoga instructors or whatnot that you might not think could excel at those skills because of their weight, or in one case because she had downs syndrome. But they do it anyway, and they do it well. So, I wanted to draw this lovely dancer who is clearly doing what she loves despite the challenge of her body size.
So I was scrolling through tumblr today and I came across a post linking to this tweet. It’s a video of a truly adorable little umbrella octopus with little ear-like flaps on top of it’s head. I think it’s called a Dumbo Octopus. Anyway, I was inspired to draw it.
So, since this is posting on Halloween, I thought it should be a Halloween themed image. So, the two things that come to mind with crawl is creepy crawly bugs and crawling babies. Bugs only seem really Halloweeny if it’s a spider or if they’re crawling over a corpse. I already did a spider this month and corpses are gross. Trying to not go for too gross since my target audience are kids.
So, a Halloween-themed baby.
I doodled a baby pumpkin-head, a baby Dracula, a baby Frankenstein’s monster, and a baby zombie. By the way, baby zombie? NO. Not cute. Bad. Very bad.
And I also doodled this baby Death, which is the one I liked best. So, that’s the one I finished off for today.
Whew! This is the last one! I’m done. I hope you enjoyed the month of inktober as much as I did. Thanks for watching!
