Inktober Day 26: Lady Amalthea

"I have been mortal, and some part of me is mortal yet.  I am full of tears and hunger and the fear of death, although I cannot weep, and I want nothing, and I cannot die.  I am not like the others now, for no unicorn was ever born who could regret, but I do.  I regret."

The Unicorn and her human form as Lady Amalthea from one of my favorite books, Peter S. Beagle's novel The Last Unicorn.

Inktober Day 25: Forest

Feeling homesick for the forest, so decided to draw one for Inktober today.  I don't think I'll ever feel truly at home until I'm under the trees again.

Inktober Day 12: Magpie

More "Magpie and the Mask Maker" sketching for today's Inktober.  This is my first go at Magpie's outfit, so nothing's set in stone yet though I do like how this turned out!

Earlier drawings of Magpie can be found here and here.

Inktober Day 11: Mask Maker Sketches

Lately I decided its time to start working on my Magpie and Mask Maker story again.  I've resolved to make an effort to do something every week to move the project along at a more regular pace.  For now its mostly gonna be a lot of exploration and visual development as I hammer out the plot and art style.

Inktober Day 3

For today's Inktober, a 17th century Polish gentleman inspired by the movie Ogniem i Mieczem (With Fire and Sword) based on the novel of the same name by Henryk Sienkiewicz.  It's a really great movie with beautiful costumes and music, I'd recommend it to any history fan!  The fur cap and coat were really fun to paint with ink.
