Here is my second illustration for Inktober 2019. This fellow is an executioner. I plan on posting two illustrations a week for this years Inktober.
Every October there is a drawing challenge to make one ink drawing a day the entire month (I plan on making two a week). An illustrator by the name of Jake Parker created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. Here is my first illustration for Inktober 2019.
This is my fan illustration of a Tusken Raider from Star Wars. Also referred to as Sand People they are indigenous to the planet Tatooine. Moreover, Sand People always ride single file to hide their numbers! In the Star Wars movies, Tusken Raiders are shown as being extremely xenophobic and territorial, often attacking the outskirts of small settlements.
Starting tomorrow, I am going to make a few drawings for Inktober. Inktober is an art challenge that asks participants to create an ink drawing every day for the month of October. I plan on making two drawings a week. One a day is out of my reach.
This is an alien creature inspired by the 1955 movie, This Island Earth. I remember watching the movie one Saturday at my grandparent’s home in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The film is full of campy elements, but it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious science fiction adventures of its time. Mystery Science Theater 3000 also used the film to great effect.
This is my fan art based on the show Zig and Sharko. Zig and Sharko is a French animated series produced by Xilam Animation and directed by Olivier Jean-Marie. The show is about a conflict on and around a volcanic island between Zig, a hyena and Sharko, a shark. The conflict is fueled by Zig’s constant attempts to eat the mermaid Marina, whom Sharko loves. My son enjoys the show and calls it Shark and Mermaid. We have been watching the show together on Netflix. I like the whimsical style of the cartooning on the show.
