Being an adult is hard. But that's not going to stop me from going after my goals! Ultimately I want to become a published comic book author/artist. I'm already working on several webcomics, but those are just stepping stones to get me to the publishing house. :) Here's hoping I get there!

The Moon is calling... Please Howl with Me!


Free Falling
This was my first drawing attempt on an iPad with the stylus... I love it so much! I want to make it into a poster, I want to draw more like it... I just love this one! 
Black Panther Painting
I painted this for a friend to auction off at the Colorado Springs Comic Con...It's so Pretty! And it now has a home with a lucky fan! 
Solitary: Blindfold Painting
I did another Blindfold Painting! I like painting with my hands! And I love to challenge myself and see what I can grasp without my sight! 
Darth Maul
I really love Star Wars, but I also want to get better at drawing people, so why not practice with a subject matter I'm passionate about? I drew this portrait of Darth Maul in Prisma Colored Pencil. I haven't done a background because I'm afraid of ruining it... 
If you haven't heard of Inktober, that's ok. I knew nothing about it a few weeks ago myself. A friend had posted on Facebook about the Inktober challenge and I couldn't help myself but to plan to do it. I got geared up, made sure I had enough pens and inks, a fresh notebook, then all I had to do was white knuckle it till October first. 

Don't worry, I was doing other art while I was waiting, but I didn't want to do any ink drawings (unless I was doodling) for fear of 'using an idea' before it's time. 

Inktober is where you draw one ink drawing a day for the whole month of October. In the end, you will have 31 original drawings, have betting ink experience, and have set a habit to daily draw. Once I realized that was all that there was to it, I got excited fast! 

So now my gallery will be busting with ink drawing for a while, and so far (since it's day 2) I am Loving it! I draw in the morning, and then when I'm at work I can't stop thinking about getting to bed and go to sleep so that I can wake up and draw some more! 

Hehe…some of us are just meant to be artists. :) 

It's not to late to start! I know that you can do every other day if that's easier for you or more convenient. And you can do a once a week if need be. As for me, I am greatly looking forward to see 31 images that slowly progress in my style, quality of work, and all the different things that I can think of! 

Have fun this Inktober! I know I will!

I really liked your arts and style. I know how its hard to draw with pure ink, only a mistake and whole drawing is gone to trash :( It requires courage to do what you have been doing. I want to congrats you and wish you luck, keep going :)

You're ink work is really impressive! Do you work in dip pens perchance? :)

I had a fountain pen but then it broke. At the moment I am using prisma color pens. They hold a symilar quality to a fountain pen, but deffinantly different. There's a little bit more control with the prisma color. I'm glad you like my ink drawings! :)
