Yet another inktober island with color. I’ve pretty much decided to make a little series out of these, maybe print a zine when I’m done. For the record, I’m documenting all my inktober drawings day by day over on my instagram if you wanna see the raw ink drawings.

Aaaaaaand another little inktober island with color.

Here’s another of my inktober drawings with color. I’m definitely having the most fun with these little evil-looking islands, maybe I’ll just do those for the rest of the month.

Here’s one of my inktober drawings with a little color on it. Working with ink instead of going straight from pencils to color has been really fun; it makes me think a lot more about shape and lighting in the drawing phase.

I have been participating in Inktober. Here are the drawings I have made so far.

Someone recently told me to try making a drawing without doing any of the pencil sketching/preliminary work I usually do. The idea is to loosen up and get some more expressive marks out of the brush instead of my usual anal-retentive line work. Well, this is a start. The piece on top is the un-edited ink drawing. I couldn’t resist noodling with it a little in photoshop though.

Acre Corporation’s Grunt-class mecha, the Egret earthmover. Shown with crew for scale.

Here’s a mech pilot whose sweet rig got dumped somewhere in the desert. Hoofing it around in the heat can really make you miss your big robot.

This week on Random Encounters: The 9th-level Mind Flayer Sorcerer! Also known as Illithids, these tentacular horrors are powerful psions and frequently capable spellcasters. They are capable of enslaving or devouring the minds of their victims. Here’s an Illithid taking a little time off to enjoy the life of the mind.

Obviously, Mind Flayers are heavily influenced by the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, who was a stunningly inventive writer and terrible bigot. I have a soft spot for these monsters and I encourage anyone interested in some truly weird stuff to check out “At The Mountains of Madness”, “The Colour Out of Space”, “The Dunwich Horror”, and indeed almost any Lovecraft tale.

I love when I roll an iconic D&D monster, and the Mind Flayer/Illithid is definitely one of those. The fact that they’re based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft is a bonus. Although, as I noted above, Lovecraft was a paranoid bigoted shut-in, he was a pretty good writer.

I will testify that everything above is absolutely true.

This week on Random Encounters: The Roper! I was very excited about this one too. I love drawing rocks and I love drawing monsters, and here is a monster who pretends to be a rock! Double damage. Ropers lurk in stony caves or among rocky hills, pretending to be natural fixtures until a hapless victim wanders into reach of their grasping tentacles.

I’m coming up on the end of the 20-level progression and I’m thinking about what else I want to do with this project. I was thinking about a zine collecting all the drawings, maybe with some extra text and stuff? Would anyone be interested in that?

Here’s the latest monster. Would anybody be interested in a zine collecting all of these? I want to do something with this project beside just the prints.

Also don’t forget to check out Singer’s Cave, Part One, new every Wednesday on STUDY GROUP.

WHAAAT, another monster post so soon? How can it be? This week on Random Encounters, a level 15 Kobold Sorcerer. Usually kobolds are just 1st-level fodder for greedy adventurers, but this one has survived long enough to gain some character levels. Here he is, checking on his hidden magical reagent garden. I have to admit that I get a little bored drawing those powerful monsters; they have so much less personality than the low level schmucks. I was pretty chuffed to roll this one.

Here he is, the Level Fifteen Kobold Sorcerer! His arcane wisdom is almost palpable.
