Inktober drawings 7 and 8

I got late start with my Inktober drawings. Family stuff and the last of 3 weekend conventions in a row. Brain went into overload and in my down time, I slept.

Back in the studio now. The last push for my pencil sketches for the book under contract are top priority. Their deadline is just around the corner. Luckily, I passed the halfway mark before the conventions and life stuff interrupted my carefully plotted schedule.

A week late to the Inktober challenge, but it still counts. It’s October and they are in ink. I’m using a Sharpie extra fine point. The bleed is pretty strong though, so getting a very fine line in the sketchbook isn’t happening. I may switch to a Copic marker later on, but speed was the determining factor this week.

Here’s my Inktober for the 7th and 8th. I’ve decided to work all the sketches with the same character face in mind. Not being very particular on the consistency but focusing more on just having some fun and warming up for my paying client work.
