Inktober 2017, day 1-9

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

October is here, and with it comes cool winds, crunchy leaves, and ink art! There is an official prompt list, which I followed for exactly one day, oops. Instead, I’m concentrating on drawing things that make me happy this time around, with a side of clearing out my daunting commissions queue, so expect a hodgepodge of whatever mood strikes me throughout the month.

Devil and Ghost

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Devil and Ghost, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Devil and Ghost, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Is this where I just admit I have sold a LOT of these chibi commissions lately? But they’re just so fun, I have no regrets.

color test ghostThese are for Halloween, of course! Arthur and Eames from Inception coming back again as the Devil and a ghost. Arthur is smarming it up in his red velvet suit, straightening his cuffs as he leans nonchalantly in wait. Eames is looking extra spiffy floating along in his vintage windowpane check.

And of course on the right I have the little sketch ghost I drew just to test Eames’ colors before the real thing. Boo!

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

French Arthur

French Arthur, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

French Arthur, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

For this second set, my patron wanted an artist Eames since we have so many writing/working emoji (and we have a LOT). Neither of us could resist the idea of Arthur in the “draw me like one of your French girls” meme pose, so that became the model. No logic explains why I drew them backwards on the page, though, sigh.

Whatever it is you need to be encouraged to do, Arthur’s telling you to go for it.

Before His First Cup

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Before His First Cup, James Bond parody art by Amy Crook

Before His First Cup, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

There’s yet more Slack emoji this week!

We do a lot of sprinting or Pomodoro or 20/10s or whatever you want to call them on our Slack channel, where a group of people write or draw or work or clean for a set time period and come back and cheer each other on for their progress. Q is adding to the amazing variety of emoji we have for signalling the start of those sprints, and Bond is just there to provide tea.

After all, Q can do more damage in his pyjamas before his first cup of Earl Grey than Bond can do in a year, if he puts his mind to it.

Dancing Dalek

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Dancing Dalek, Doctor Who parody art by Amy Crook

Dancing Dalek, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Feeling in a party mood? Celebrate! Celebrate! Celebrate!

This dancing Dalek is perhaps also a bit drunk, as he meanders through the world ordering others to join in his celebration. Perfect for birthday festivities, or any other excuse you might have to, well, you know.

I have, of course, made it into a card! It’s blank inside, but I admit I was thinking of birthdays when I drew it.

Sadboy and the Knob

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Sadboy & the Knob, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Sadboy & the Knob, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I’ve got Slack emoji once again! My darling fellow fans have been eager to populate the chat with the full cast of Inception. Cobb the Knob, as he’s affectionately known, is giving his famous squint that launched a thousand memes. Poor Fischer is crying over his pinwheel and daddy issues, looking very sad indeed.

I feel like there’s some kind of Britpunk band waiting to happen here with the art title, but that might just be the urge to see Robert Fischer looking anything but heartbroken for a second.

Geronimo

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Geronimo, Doctor Who parody art by Amy Crook

Geronimo! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Finally, I’ve finished the third of my commission series I’m calling All the Doctors. My patron’s been very patient with the pace on these!

The eleventh Doctor has belatedly* arrived in his finery, all decked out with his tweed coat and watch chain and the whole later seasons getup. He’s got a different waistcoat, shirt, and tie on than in the promo photos, which I referenced from stills out of the show. I particularly like the polka dots on the bowtie — what’s your favorite detail?

*but not 11 years late
