The organic lines and often crazy expressions in Skottie Young‘s work are totally awesome. For today I tried to find something for his little Cyclops to be doing, and thought S’mores was a good enough use of his mutant ability.

For today’s Inktober inspiration, I’m trying to doodle something in the style of Ben Caldwell. He’s an artist that seems to have a never ending supply of old sketches he keeps finishing/improving. I have his “Action Cartooning” book for a few years back that this pose was pseudo stolen from. 0% effort was put into the feet while inking and it shows.
Today I honor Lorenzo Etherington, an amazing artist that has been continually uploading drawing tutorials to the internet for free with no end in sight. I have a trove of these tutorials saved on my phone for reference, and he’s even done some crazy successful Kickstarter campaigns for those interested in purchasing books of his work. There’s even one going on right now for a writing book by his brother Robin. He draws some crazy cool vehicles, so I thought I’d doodle this stub-nosed, cab-over-engine delivery truck thing (I would love to build something like this one day).
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.
So, this was started on the 15th day of Inktober for the prompt “Legend” as a collaboration between my oldest and I. I had to build different parts, some digitally, and then composite them together in the computer. The final mock up was printed very faintly on some bristol paper and then I inked over that all over again. So I using this for the 19th day of Inktober too. Might fart around with even more in the future, but it’s done for now.
Today I’m inspired by Johannes Helegson, who often draws warriors, pirates, and Warhammer! Go check him out!
For the 17th day of Inktober I thought I would highlight Brian Kesinger, an amazing illustrator who works at Disney and on his own projects. One year for Inktober, he did an entire series of dragons, so I thought I would doodle one being a dork.
Today’s Inktober inspiration is Andy Estrada. He posts lots of sketches and concepts online, and often uses this funny little cat guy to depict his relief that the weekend has finally arrived.
Most of his digital sketching is in blue, so I used a blue Sakura brush pen in homage.
Today’s doodle was paterned after the amazing watercolor and pencil artist Jonathan Edwards. There was a point in the drawing where I was pretty happy with it, and then I just had to keep going and going and going…and we’re left with this. It should not be a reflection on Mr. Edwards amazing work.
This doodle was done with a Zebra F-301 ballpoint pen and a blue pencil.
