    The picture came out a bit blurry, but I'm feeling lazy. This was my response to the prompt "ice planet," but it kinda looks more like a frozen tree. Ah, well. Its about trying new things anyway.

    Inktober Day Three. Eli, the 7th wielder of the Cytan Blade.

    Out of all the weapons forged using the diamonds from the Eastern Blue, ten are in a category all their own: the aptly called Legendary Blades. Created during the reign of the Old Kings, these ten blades all share shards from the same diamond, harvested from an ancient Eastern Blue named Cimetar; yet each has its own name and distinct properties depending on the wielder. Since then, weapons makers have tried to create blades of a similar caliber.

    Throughout history, a handful of fierce and skilled warriors have had the strength to wield these legendary weapons. And while some have been able to utilize these blades to a higher degree than others, none have been able to fully harness the power locked within.

    Only three of these blades are known to remain. One belongs to the descendants of Aelia and is being safeguarded somewhere under the grand halls of Castle Gaia. The other belongs to the descendants of Kane and is hidden within the Grey Mountains. The third has been reclaimed by the Eastern Blue Dragons.

    As for the others, there are rumors that a clandestine group called the Dark Covenant have access to four of the Legendary Blades. The last three have disappeared along with their wielders.

  • Feeling a little under the weather. Argh.

  • Trying my hand at traditional media after working digitally for many years. My hands are still too wobbly unless its a tablet stylus. Also, old school storyboard post it fix!

    I know I'm going against rules of Inktober...but I wanted to redo that last piece. I felt I was rushing needlessly and made the piece too muddy overall. So here is entry number 3.5.

  • I didn't get much time to do mine yesterday so it was a quick one but I spent a bit more time on mine today and made a badass shark.



  • day 3: no time yesterday so just a yucky scribble before bed!

  • @audrey-dowling I like it - she looks like she's about to kick someone's ass

    I've had this house rattling around my head for a while 🙂

  • Hi. I'm going through a rough breakup with my girlfriend of 2 and 1/2 years. The way I see it there's 2 things I can do: 1) cry myself to sleep, 2) draw like crazy.

    Just wanted to say that, because I feel Inktober is really helping me overcome this, so I want to thank Mr. Parker for making this.

    I work a lot with watercolor and I... just.. couldn't... help myself on this one. I promise the next drawing is going to be 100% ink.


  • @Callaxes At the beginning of the year I went through a break up with my partner of 10 years and we had at the time, a 3 year old girl. She's now 4. Believe me, it really, really does get easier. It looks like it doesn't now to you, but it does. Put your negative energy into a positive one and keep creating.


  • @Ace-Connell Thanks Ace. My heart goes out to you man. Hope things get better for you.

  • @Callaxes They are better. My daughter and I have an amazing relationship and the tension that was on the relationship isn't there anymore. Things will totally get better for you too 🙂

  • @Callaxes, I don't have much experience in overcoming break ups, but I can tell that Inktober and other activities that keeps you from thinking too much about bad experiences we just came through helps a lot. In 2013 I had just lost my job and focusing on Inktober helped mea lot to handle things. I hope you get better soon! 🙂

    Here's my enter for Inktober 4th. Still developing things for my personal project.

    Lessons learned: Don't put too much texture on a background item, detracts focus from what I wanted.
    Learn composition
    Figure out how to indicate reflectiveness on shiny objects

    Inktober Day Four. Gaia, the Hidden City.

    Gaia was built by the descendents of Aelia during the latter end of the reign of the Old Kings. Because of the war and conflict of the era, they saw the need to create a safehaven for their people. The city was built in secret over the course of 70 years and is considered a defensive stronghold. There is only one mountain pass from the south that leads to Gaia, and even that is often obscured by cloud cover. The surrounding area is home to a number of dragon species, making an attack from above quite tricky. To the north lies the mountain range known as the Divine Wall. It is there that the last known sighting of a Guardian occured. The Guardians have remained silent for the past 200 years.
