inktober witch part 2


Can you believe this month is about half over!  Above are two more pages for inktober paper doll. here.  Page 1 includes Socialite, I always imaging someone in a sharp cutting edge of fashion suit.  Seamstress I tried to make a human pincushion.  Blood witch.  And lolita witch wearing a cute pumpkin dress with ruffles and bows.  I also added in a broom and a cauldron bag that can go with different outfits. Page two includes a Wicked Witch, inspired by Raven Queen from Ever after High.  Sun witch, inspired by Sun Goddess Barbie. Candy witch, inspired by Katy Perry, and Pixie witch, whose wings are a bit lopsided because I ran out of room on the page! More to come.

Vamps and Villains


So I got my newest/latest issue of OPDAG in the mail.  Issue 118 theme was Vamps and Villains.  I decided to do these two Batman ladies, since they are both Vamps and Villains. Harley Quinn 6 outfits and a 'hat', all of these are from various video games, cartoons and movies.  I was inspired by Bruce Timm's artwork as far as style goes. Just note before you look him up, not all of his art is safe for work.  Poison Ivy has 6 outfits, also from various movies and comics.These characters are owned by DC comics.  I used Adobe Illustrator to create the dolls.  I may add more characters later (Wonder Woman, Cat woman maybe)

Halloween Finger Puppets

Here's another Halloween Children's Page from the artist Joan Walsh Anglund.  This page features 5 finger puppet figures along with a pumpkin shaped stage. I believe this is from October 1984 or 1985.

inktober witch paper doll

Last year I did a Ball joint Lolita themed paper doll for inktober but I never posted it because I want to work on the project further.  This year I found a list of prompts here link  and decided that was the themes I wanted to use for my paper doll.  Day 1 was seasonal witch, I choose a subtle fall theme for the base, if she was colored (which I may do later) I'd imagine soft oranges, reds, and browns.  Second day was urban witch, I went for a modern girl vibe with a oversized sweater paired with a graphic crop top, short skirt, leggings and boots.  The 3rd day was Merchant/Vagabond, I decided to make a potion seller.  4th was garden witch,  I went for a homemade looking outfit.  She is holding a squash jack-o-lantern.  I accidentally skipped day 5 (realized this morning when I went to today's prompt) and did day 6 instead, which is Oracle.  I stuck with a traditional Greek Delphi inspired dress.  I tried a few techniques I haven't used before, resulting in some bleeding ink over my lines, but hey, it's practice.  More outfits will be posted about every 4 or 5 days, (until the page is full) for the rest of the month.  I encourage you to also participate in inktober,  There are lots of prompt list out there if you don't know what to draw.  Or just doodle in ink every day at least!

Quick Halloween Paper Doll

During the weekend I had a yard sale at my house.  Didn't get a lot of traffic or make much money, but I did had out a few sheets of the doll above.  This Halloween themed paper doll was drawn in a day.  She has 4 costumes, a princess, a witch, a fairy, and Arabian princess like Jasmine (or a genie).  She has a witch hat with wig, a princess crown with wig and a hair jewel to match the Arabian outfit.  Her base costume is a Wonder Woman super hero inspired suit.  I have like 4 colored versions of this, since I had not much to do while sitting around at my yard sale.  I'll post those later.  Maybe if I get time, I will do a boy as well to hand out at Halloween.  But it's also Inktober and I'm trying to keep up with that.

Send Love to Las Vegas

I live in Las Vegas, if you don't know...  I am safe.  The events last night are truly heart breaking. Ever since 9/11 I've always been afraid something like this would happen here, especially on the strip. With such crowds of people, and events almost every night, I felt it was just a matter of time before the city became a target. I had hoped it would never happen. I am saddened to hear it finally did. My heart go out to all those affected and prayers to the families who lost loved ones. We're all asking why, I'm not sure we'll ever know.  I don't usually post personal stuff on this blog, but when a tragedy hits home, I feel it's my responsibility.
