As we are getting to the last few days of Inktober, I wanted to pay homage to Rick Celis. He specializes in capturing the art style of “Batman: The Animated Series” but occassionally will post something in his own style. This doodle was an attempt to take his style and apply it to the iconic pose from Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Returns” cover.

I’ve been a huge fan of Mel Milton‘s for a really long time, so I thought I would honor his art for Inktober today. One of the most memorable things he’s done for me was a month or so where he repeatedly drew Wonder Woman, but in different body styles, ethnicities, and varying armor. So I took that and tried to doodle something, knowing that I’m awful at drawing females. But that’s what Inktober is all about, so here it is.
Today’s Inktober doodle is inspired by Chrissie Zullo. She has an adorable and infectious style that has been featured on comic covers and collectible toys.
My attempt to emulate falls very short.
This doodle was colored in Krita on my Surface Pro 3. The color distracts a little from all the things I don’t like about it.
In my continuing efforts to work more on drawing the female form, I thought I would take a stab at Batgirl. Not happy with it, but it’s not horrible.
Proportions are a little off, pose is wonky, needs more dynamic action…
Original in pencil and brushpen, quickly converted to lines in Inkscape, then some fixes in Krita. All on my Surface Pro 3.
I took our boys to go see the Wonder Woman movie a few weeks back and just this weekend had enough down time (not allocated to making stuff for others) that I could doodle this mighty heroine. If you’ve followed my work for any amount of time, you may notice that I don’t often draw the female form. I find it difficult to capture their physiology without reverting to ridiculous comic book proportions, so I normally just avoid it all together. This is something I need to work on though, so I gave her a shot.

I also started a video capture of the inking process, which I tried to hurry through and was defeated continually by her left hand. Eventually I gave up. Observe my failures below.
Today starts Inktober 2016. Thought I’d kick it off with a version of the Teen Titan Cyborg from the episode “Riding the Dragon.” This version showed up the previous season in “Campfire Stories” and I’m glad they gave it some more screen time.
This was a doodle I drew last week during a long day of meetings. Had some time to fart around on the computer so I thought I’d color it in MyPaint and comp it all together in The GIMP. I actually enjoyed this movie, but I didn’t walk in with many expectations.
Day 2 of inktober! My quill pen was being a pain tonight, so I fell back to my regular sakura pens.
Yesterday’s sketch_dailies topic of mashups was “Wonder Wombat”, so I thought I’d spend my time at the scout meeting tonight doodling another member of the Marsupial Justice League; Wombatman.
