Inktober 2014 by Starhorse
Inktober 2014
All in one big chunk, because I'm allergic to daily uploads -_- I opted for doing a drawing every other day. 

About half of these came from the call for requests I posted in my journal at the beginning of the month: the balinese cat, 'unconventional witch', winged zebra, keplie (doubly so, as someone requested something similar in composition to Escher's 'three worlds'), hippocampus, owl griffin, and clumsy werewolf. I think my favorites are the mongolian guy, the girl on the yak, the unicorn, and the kelpie. The nearly all black one is probably the one I'm least happy with. It was supposed to be a tibetan mastiff. At night. I have no idea why I thought that would be a good idea to try using just an ink brush, but...there it is. 

All of these except the hippocampus were done with an ink-brush. I'm not sure I'm friends with it yet, but this certainly helped. I use a red mechanical pencil to sketch in. I did not alter these digitally in any way before uploading (though I was very tempted to on some...)

I'd be willing to sell the originals for these except for the four favorites I mentioned earlier, for $25 each. The image size is about 3.5" x 5" not including the white border. Note me if interested. The hippocampus would be $30, just because he took so dang long, and is much more detailed than the other ones. He's the only one done with a different pen (gel ink).

Some shell studies from my sketchbook, and a postcard with a drawing of my dog I sent my sister. And some stamps. Because stamps. 

That is all.

Try to stick to common-noun type suggestions, not so much 'my specific character X' but something like 'A cowboy!' is more along the lines I'm looking for. A 'cowboy riding a jackalope!' would also be a welcome sort. I'm okay with fandom suggestions, but don't go overboard, since I don't want to have to look up tons of reference for these. 

I may not take all suggestions, but I will try to make at least half of my inktober drawings from you guys! 

Also. Quantum Fairy Tales has another issue coming up, and it's the Halloween issue! If you want to submit art to it, note me your submission and a short bio (including the name you want posted with it, if accepted, and your age if under 18) It's not monetarily compensated, but I give at least a 250 word critique to all submissions, so if you want some free, thought out feedback, now's your chance!

Wanting to challenge myself stylistically, I feel like I've finally hit on something with this one. Good old Shasta, haven't drawn her in ages. Also, not really a 'media horse' in the true sense of the series, but I'll put it in anyway since it's pretty similar. 

Pen and ink, gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, and graphite. And liquid gilding, which by the way KILLS brushes. 

If you reblog please link back here. Please don't repost as your own.

Just mostly writing a book. Then need to finish a graphic novel. 

It takes a lot of time.
