More Inktober Illustrations

Here are some more illustrations I made for Inktober 2020. Inktober was created by the illustrator Jake Parker as a challenge to improve inking skills and drawing habits. The prompts for these illustrations are, teeth, slippery, dune and armor. I created a Maurice Sendak inspired monster with teeth. For slippery I created an illustration of the tar monster from the original episodes of Scooby Doo. I created an illustration of Paul Atreides, the main character from Frank Herbert’s famous science fiction book, Dune. For armor I created an illustration of an Imperial Scout Trooper from Star Wars. Nothing says effective armor like Stormtrooper armor.

Alien Alligator

My drawing of an alien alligator. The drawing is inspired by a little known illustrator from the 1970s named Larry Evans. I find it very nostalgic to peruse the pages of his drawing books and recall a seven year old me drawing from them at the kitchen table.
