Best of #Inktober 2014

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Last month I participated in #Inktober 2014, a daily drawing challenge using only ink! I did all of these in the sketch noir style, using a refillable Pentel pocket brush pen (like a fountain pen, but with a brush tip). Now that the month is over, I thought I’d repost my favorites here (or you can see the full set on my Tumblr).

Pixel Figure Drawing

Monday, May 26, 2014

Let’s revisit some classics. This week, three pages of pixel figure drawings, and one page of pixel street sketches, using as reference some of my old sketches from 2004, nearly ten years ago. For that page I’m trying the black outline style commonly seen in actual game sprites. It’s a neat effect … I’m not sure which style I like better.
