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.

Queen of Swords

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

Queen of Swords, chibi tarot art by Amy Crook

Queen of Swords, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This bodaciously majestic Queen of Swords is a delightful take on the tarot card, with one hand raised up to greet her subjects and her sword held ready in the other.

She’s got little blue swords on her sleeves, and the green brocade of her underskirt is covered in arrows letting you know just where to kneel. At her feet. Where you belong. Everything about her expression tells you she’s completely confident in her ability to make you do what she says.

Truly royal.

Above – look at that quirky, regal smile! Bow to that quirky, regal smile. Below, she’s majestically framed, just as she should be.

30 Day Marker Challenge, part 4

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

The amazing Sadynax gave herself a 30-day Marker Challenge last month, and I decided to do it for April to help get back in the swing of art after my surgery.

I managed to make art nearly every day this month (once I doubled up and skipped a day), and I can definitely see how I got back into using my materials as the month went on. I also got more energy to put into the finished pieces as my stamina returned, so hooray for healing!

Day 25: Draw liquid.
