Tess's Inktober Comic



  • Hey Tess, Just saw your latest post on instagram and you have stopped the storyline. I was enjoying following along the story. Were you finding it too much to illustrate and write the story? Really enjoying your illustrations...great work on this challenge!



  • @elaine-b Thanks Elaine. It wasn't too hard, the descriptions were easy to write- I'm just trying to tell the story in the best way possible. I wasn't sure if the writing was getting too cheesy or excessive. Here's the description I would have put for the last one-

    . . .the Gigantic Night-Grinner had awoken for it's yearly feeding frenzy. The village who had been tasked to pay it tribute had been destroyed months before by The Three. And now- what. . . or who would satisfy it's smiling hunger?

    I probably would have just left the "Run" illustration without a description anyway.

    I'm torn about the description. I think for some days it works, and for other's I think it's better left without a description. The next panel might need a description, because I'm not sure if it will be clear what's happening- because it's an action scene that has to happen in one image. I'll have to think on it more.



  • @tessw I love the concept/artwork. I can't wait to see what happens next! Well done!



  • Here's another batch.

    Fun stuff Tess! It must be quite challenging and yet enjoyable to do these!



  • Moar Inktober. I used to be a day ahead, then I got a day behind, and now I think I'm caught up. I keep having to tell myself "finished not perfect". 🙂

  • wow. Great story. Amazing how you linked everything. Well done.



  • @TessW this is just remarkable--awesome work! Very nicely done!



  • You should be really proud of your work. I enjoyed seeing it all unfold and reading the story underneath. It's just a beautiful thoughtful collection!



  • Wow Tess these are amazing drawings! And I really like the story told and how you were able to do it while also following along with the prompts! I'm just gonna say right now if this were a book I'd be buying it!

    I loved too seeing how his sword broke (shattered) but really it seems like it was just a power instead and it came back together afterward, like there is a small side story to his weapon to go along with the main story you drew out.

    Out of all of them I really like Long, Gigantic and Mask! Love seeing your work!

    Wow, Tess! This is the first time I've looked at all your drawings for Inktobef. Really cool story and I am also amazed that you could keep with the list! So talented!
