Second drawing of the night — feels good to be caught up. Tried using more color for this one and immediately regretted the decision. Stuck with it and things turned out alright. Satisfied with Boy’s pose, sitting cross-legged. Definitely the most challenging pose I’ve tried so far. Had serious doubts I could pull it off. Good lesson on pushing through to finish artwork.

Sleep and travel finally caught up with me and I missed two days of Inktober themes. Instead of trying to rush them out a few days late, I declared bankruptcy and continued on with the current day’s theme, “Tree”.

This was drawn in the back of a rental car on the way up to West Lafayette from Indianapolis for Purdue University homecoming weekend. Because of the bumpy ride, I opted for brush pens to help absorb the jitters.

Stayed up until 2:00 am catching up on Day 10 and 11. Thought this would be a quick drawing but actually took much longer than I expected. Had to really cut back on the detail work that a real Space 1999 Eagle would require. Really loved that show as a kid — great special effects for a TV show of that era. I think this turned out way too “blocky”, but can’t complain considering it was rushed and I was running on a serious lack of sleep.

Bunny and Boy return again for day 9. This time I did use a few references of a Red Flyer tricycle to get this right.

I used this drawing as a challenge to work on character posing and proportions. I used a skeletal construction approach and I compressed the normal human proportions to get a more cartoon-like child figure. I really struggled with Boy’s face, but it kind of came together just at the point where I almost gave up on it.
