Inktober – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 6: Black Lagoon – Sword

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword

– Black Lagoon . Sword –
Day #6 MabsDrawlloweenClub – InkTober 2017

Day #6  Entry double challenges Mabsdrawlloweenclub and Inktober is for the prompts “Black Lagoon and Sword

Today painting is mainly inspired by the prompt from Mabsdrawlloweenclub which is “Black Lagoon”  referred to Creature from the Black Lagoon a 1954 American black-and-white 3D monster horror film I honestly had to do my researches to know more about this old movie. I have then created my own character that you see in my painting. And the prompt for Inktober is Sword so I had to find a way to add a sword so I had my character carry it which I think did work out great for the combination of the two promps!


Details about my paintings:
 My Ink drawing is outlined with ink pens. Pentel Pocket Brush black ink.  Ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05 . A Alvin Draft/Matic #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves Pencil. A dash of watercolor  I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle,  Pentel Aqua Brush – I painted on Bee Paper for watercolor 140lb, 100% cotton, cold pressed, size 6×9 inches .

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword – Supplies Used

Today I wanted to post more photos, this one is to show you all my supplies for today painting! What you see in the picture it is everything I have used 3 different size and colors of Micron pens: Dark red 0.5 – Brown 0.1 – Black 0.5 – Sakura White Jelly Roll – Pilot Turquoise Precise V5 extra fine – Sennellier watercolors, Alvin Draftmatic pencil.

Day #6: Black Lagoon – Sword – Pencil Sketch

This is the photo of my starting pencil sketch just, that you can see a little of how my drawing progressed and turned in a watercolor, outlined ink painting! I hope that you enjoy to see this daily challenges and how prompts can inspire to create paintings that you never thought about it!
