INKvember #1!

INKvember #1: Gravity's Angel (redux)

Yeah, I know: 'INKvember' is sooo creative. But! - it's a continuation of INKtober, so why not?

I'm not after daily drawings this month; my goal is to create a handful of polished drawings. Subject matter will cover Brainsick, Legacy, KriMauTai, and more.

This is the look I need to continue developing. I love having pieces I can work on over the course of a few or several days. Something to unwind with after working retail!

For inspiration, I referred to Sergio Toppi's incomparable Sharaz-De: Tales from the Arabian Nights. I wanted to play with composition and negative space.

Original INKtober concepts.

Stippling: my former artsy arch-nemesis is now one of my greatest stress-reducers.
