Joined this year's Inktober because why the hell not.

Day 1: Inspired mostly by Junji Ito. I'd been reading a lot of lovecraft so I feel that influenced the piece a bit too. Didn't make much use of my brushpens which better complimented the paper, I later found out.

Day 2: I had this idea of having a square cutout where the mouth should be. I was planning to dress him in a jute bag afterwards but realized the cutout wouldn't work out so I made him a product of scientific malpractice.

Day 3: Decided to use brushpens, which was a bit annoying on this type of paper. It soaks up a lot of ink which isn't problematic for fineliners but brushpen ink tend to spread... This piece nags me. It feels incomplete. I could have used a lot more black and made it more interesting.

Day 4: Definitely my favorite piece of the bunch. Initially I wasn't going to have her tongue out but I'm glad I came up with that idea. It reminds me of Junji Ito's work even though that wasn't my intention.

Day 5: Inspired by Lovecraft I wanted to experiment with an eye shape where the rim is littered with tentacles. When I'd drawn it I didn't really know where to go from there. I figured to get more nautical from there. The perspective is really off among other things, but it could have been a lot worse I think.

Day 6: I just wanted to piece together strange bodyparts and came up with a hand and foot. Only when I was done drawing the hand did I realize how little space I had left for the foot, so it's kind of small in comparison lol. I almost fucked this one up with the veins. Then I decided to make them black and squigly and... SAVED! I still feel like there's too much white space but all in all I like how it turned out.

Day 7: Saraaaaaah!! It's that monster from the 10 two sentence horror stories animation. I looked up what it's legs looked like and then completely fucked them up. She looks like a chicken now. Oh well. That concludes week 1.


Very impressive, clean and methodical looking creature-things. If anyone ever cries, "No inspiration" again, I'll steer them towards Lovecraft.

Whirlguy responds:

Haha thanks man, you're right. Everytime I'm out of inspiration, lovecraft is a great way to put my pen in motion.
