The topic of piece focuses on nostalgia.
Its no surprise that as a child, I had spent much of my youth glued to the TV playing classic NES games. Below is a collage of my favorite heroes and the system that started it all for me - The Nintendo Entertainment System.
So...decided to join the InkTober challenge. Kind of spur of the moment, but I've never done a month challenge for inking...so this could be fun. At the moment, I'm doing this alongside a friend that I've made in Gwangju, Jen Lee. She's awesome, yall can check her work out here!
For this piece, I decided to go with a Jack O' Lantern inspired piece. It would've worked better with more undulating lines, and possibly an ink pen! Truth is, I used a brush for this piece!

So while staying here in Gwangju, the art's community is slowly coming together. For the moment, I've met several prolific figures, but we're such a minority that its very...intimate. I like to think of ourselves as a lost tribe, or a coven of arcanists. After learning about Drink & Draws and Saturday Art Class @ the GIC, I thought I'd throw my lot and start up weekly art challenges.
Being that this is our first time doing this, I'm hoping things go well! Anywho, here's my submission!
While I didn't want to fully illustration a personal dream of mine, this image hits home for me.
"Our bodies were entwined with cosmic energy and a universe of possibilities lay before us".
Rather simple execution. Hand made textures and drawing. ~45mins.

As of late, I've been slowly getting back into art. Instead of spending my time working on countless sketches, I've directed my attention at settling on an idea and trying to pump it out. So far, its been a fun process, gesture sketching -> line art -> line art -> digital. I'll need to work on something faster.
Anywho, the subject of this piece is a character from a friend's D&D game. Cuán is a stoic tomboyish female knight. I've a feeling that she's both physically and mentally strong, independent and not afraid to fight for justice.
