Back in 2013 I did a mock cover for the imaginary first issue of a Heap comic book. Since 2013 was the year of Daughter of Spiders I didn’t post the artwork here, only on my Facebook pages. Silly me. Time to fix that. Below are process steps for the cover.
Well, that was something. I’ve seen Drawlloween and Inktober posts in past years but always during October – too late to participate. I just don’t enjoy playing catch up. This year I knew the challenges were coming and felt comfortable jumping in.
What do I think of the results?
Given that I’m always critical of my finished work – not bad. One or three of the images are just right. One or three of them are ideas/compositions that I may revisit as more detailed illustrations.
I don’t know if I’ll participate again next year. That’s a long time away.
Oh, that extra theme I added to my illustrations?
All the subjects are female. I know it’s not obvious with some of them but that’s my intention. Monsters come in at least two sexes and it’s important to give equal time.
