“The Magic of Love”
@theprairiefox #2 is the clearest read for me. The size relationship of the cupid to father is defined. The left to right of the broken arrow and the tape is like a before and after, the solution is easy to read. Cool concept! hmmm, what else is on the handy dad workbench
@Debra-Garcia you're right I like that the airplane is coming directly to the recipient, now I will play with the wall angle. #1 & 4 are more observational, #3 is more of the pov of the character. Since the idea started as the visual metaphor for how love can enter or be void in our lives - now I need to decide what the story / intent is. About the situation or about the character. hmm
Working through an idea of portraying love. Perhaps this is more an editorial approach than children’s lit? I had my symbolic thoughts while drawing this (working digital in Procreate). Please let me know which layout you prefer or suggestions for improvements. What does this say to you?
@johanna-kim thanks these prompt competitions are so much fun!

"Something on the Wing"
I used traditional dip ink and brush (continuing Inktober) over the pencil sketch, then photoshop colored and deleted part of the inking to soften and blend the edges. This bi-plane I saw in person and had several photo references to work from. I really wanted to do something with an engine for our friend Jake!

Tryin' to learn how to use spot blacks.
Nailing it!!! Linework is spot on beautiful Jeff Smith style. I jumped over to your webcomic page, WOW you've got a solid body of work there, I have some reading to do! BRAVO!
It's great to see the Inktoberists here, great idea - and bravo everyone! I've been following a little caveman in my head lately so he's having some adventures with the Inktober prompts. Throughout the days I've tried several brush markers and fountain pens, but I've been settling on brush and dip ink, with a little wash effect.
