Inktober 2018 - Week #1


Sakura Alexia

582 views

Well the first week of the challenge has gone by, and I'm pretty satisfied with the results and the fact that I managed to keep costant with my drawings.
As you know I let the resident members of the board choose what I should have drawn and then randomized the choices and made the list.
Now, I do not know most of these characters, so I might have made mistakes, I most likely did, and also I had to use references, more than normal. For who knows me already knows that despite my knowledge, I still don't feel comfortable with drawing things without references to help me out, this applies even more to things I don't know.
If you notice some splotches of color out of place its because the paper I use is pretty thin, however its all I have, so markers mostly bleed out a lot, and also because I'm a dumbass that gets impatient and rushes things too.
Hopefully I haven't disappointed anyone.

Day 1 - Ruby from RWBY
Chosen by Malgelir
First one, I don't really have to say much of this, other that it has been my test for the new black marker I bought the exact same day, also the hair, I didn't feel like leaving them with white spots where there was red in it, it didn't fit, so I added a bit of red in there, looks way better like that.

Day 2 - Soul of Cinder from Dark Souls III
Chosen by TJMike
I have never, ever, drawn armored people before, however it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, must have been for the reference, but still I swear I never did such thing before.
Now, the armor all black would have been horrible, and I wouldn't have been able to show all the cracks and holes in it very well either, which is what makes the armor good in the first place, so I decided to make it gray, with the darkest gray marker I own, and I have quite a few, and also a but of fire here and there, it wouldn't have turned out well otherwise, in my opinion.
Anyway I followed a little bit of a gameplay of the game, and her looks and sounds pretty familiar to me, though I can't quite recall.
Other than that I loved the details.

Day 3 - Iris from Final Fantasy XV
Chosen by Malgelir
Not much to say about this one either, didn't know who she was, I still don't, I added a little of gray here too because it looked cool, and that's about it.

Day 4 - A page full of Pokemon
Chosen by onewiththewheels
This was... long, very long to do, I did it over two days instead of one. I have mostly chosen Pokemon I like, they're some of my favorites so why not?
The one I'm mostly happy with is Moltres, I like the flames and how they turned out, the others are okay, Dragonair could have been done better though, and Lucario's tail is pretty bad. Also i think I should have distributed them better on the page, ah well, no turning back now.

Day 5 - Nightwing from DC Comics
Chosen by Ace of Spies
I don't draw comics characters, I don't know comic characters, the style is a bit different too so I don't know if he's good enough.
Also here, to make the hair better I had to use my white marker, which sadly isn't so sharp as its a marker, but I haven't managed to find a white pen yet so I have to stick with it.
Overall I'm okay with the result.

Day 6 - Kirito from Sword Art Online
Chosen by Malgelir
I am... pretty conflicted about this guy, on one side I'm pretty proud, on the other side I think I have given him a more stupid expression that how I meant to, I'm not really sure how to feel at all.
Once again the white marker makes its appearance, though I'm not happy on how I laid it down. It could have been done better.

Day 7 - Weiss from RWBY
Chosen by Malgelir
Yet another character I don't know anything about, though I didn't mind her as she reminds me a lot about one of my own OCs with the white hair, blue eyes and the scar.
I think I messed up her hair a bit though, the volume doesn't seem quite right to me. Ah well its done now.

Inktober 2018 Day 7 - Weiss by SakuraAlexia

This was the first week, lots of characters I didn't know about but that is a challenge in the challenge, if that makes any sense. Some days I worked more, other days I worked less, I hope to be able to keep up as its already tiring me out a bit, some days my hands hurt badly after I finished, I hope not to have to drop out though, it would be a shame.
I'll post the second week well... next week, hopefully in time. Until then, have a nice day. :)

OOHH Your Soul of Cinder is awesome!! You even showed some of the cloth he wears and the embers in the armor.

Some of the others I recognize, other I don't. But I know all the images are just as awesome. You have an incredible talent, and I can't wait to see week 2. :D

I'm not sure if it's because I'm on a phone but I can't see any of the images. 

It must be, because I see everything fine.

Thank you, but like I said I used references, I wish could abandon them, but I don't feel confident without them yet.

The flames were what made him more interesting, besides I don't draw elements often, but if I had to pick a favorite is would be fire.

OK, it was just the school WiFi. They all look amazing, especially Weiss and Ruby!!! I love them, they are now downloaded onto my phone for safe keeping!!! 

Ah school wifi, I remember that back at school I couldn't access a lot of things too, even DA, it made me sad back then.

Anyway glad you like them. ^_^

Heyyy, these are pretty good, I mean it. I've seen your drawings for quite some time now, and these ones look very different from when I first met you. You're improving! My favorite pieces has to be the Dark Souls one. Much detail! <3

Improving is what I hope to do. ^_^ 

I love details, to draw though, not much to color. XD
