It’s a few hours late but I drew another Beaster Dummy. I drew the first one in 2014 then must have skipped a few years til I drew him again in 2019 & 2020 making this 3 years in a row.
We’ve been watching “What We Do In The Shadows’’ the TV series the past few days and it’s just as funny as the movie. The most recent episode we watched had the cast from the movie plus other famous tv & movie vampires.
I finally inked him. Black ink on white paper but I forgot to take a picture. It’s a Thank-You card going out with a t-shirt order and I already sealed the envelope. I digitally inked the one below and added a little color. I used the photo of the pencil sketch at the bottom.
My family has always celebrated Xmas by staying up till midnight on Christmas Eve so on Christmas Day there’s not a whole lot going on. Usually I’m out of town at a relatives house, just lounging around and hanging out with my cousins. This year, because of COVID, there was no get-together. Today I just hung out at home and didn’t do much besides watch tv and movies again. I didn’t want to end the day without doing something fartsy so I did a quick drawing called “Hail Santa,” cause it’s Christmas.
This is one of the two Thank You cards I drew this weekend. This one is was for my friend, Ferris, who bought an OG white 1.0 t-shirt on Black Friday. Ferris is also a local business owner. She’s a massage therapist and owns and operates Inhale Exhale Bodywork here in San Jose. I’ve already reached out to her so I can get my first professional massage in the near future
It's happened every year for the last three years that I've done Inktober, I start running out of ideas and spend more time thinking of what to draw than actually draw. I think I've just entered the slump. Today I spent hours trying to come up with an idea and only sketched a few with pencil. Tomorrow I'll have to draw & ink two drawings to catch up.
Now that I'm done working on the skull I've been trying to catch up on my Inktober drawings. I only managed to ink three of them today.
I drew a zombie with a face mask mask for Inktober. I also mapped out more of the skull I'll be painting.
I ripped off the cellophane wrapper, slapped on one my stickers and started sketching in my new sketchbook tonight. It's some sort of decomposing skull with plants growing out of it.
More byproducts from working on the Eyes & Mouths drawing. I draw these to warm-up and test the different pens before inking the main piece. It's a great exercise and fun to get loose with these before getting super focused inking the big one.
It's been a few weeks since I'd drawn on the iPad so today I picked it up and did a few "quick" doodles. The timelapse videos were exported from Adobe Fresco and sped up in iMovie.
I still haven't started inking the 18x24 Eyes & Mouths drawing but I did ink a smaller 11x17 version, freehanded, for exercise. I also drew that melty monster on the right with a dying Copic marker. I was about to throw away the marker when I was finished but remembered that they're refillable.
So I made up this evil Easter bunny character I call the Beaster Dummy. I first drew it in 2014 (bottom left) not very evil looking. I must have skipped a few years because the next one was 2019 and it looked a little gnarlier than before. This year I wanted to emphasize the "beast" so I made it scarier. I feel it could have used a few more hours to really make me happy but it was already past midnight and Beaster is over.
This is kinda what it looks like when you go to @sanjoseday on Instagram and scroll to my post. It's one long seamless image broken down into 10 slides. I laid out a bunch of different digital drawings & designs I've made over the past few years. It was fun making this and participating in the virtual art show since we're all still sheltering in place. The actual San Jose Day event has been postponed to July 18. Hopefully we'll be over the 'Rona by then. Fingers crossed.
I created a body because I used it in another project and didn't want it hanging off the bottom right corner. Now it's running around naked spitting all over everything.
