Dragon Quest Inktober

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!  For the past couple of days I've been working on a Dragon Quest themed Inktober. Inktober basically means posting a new inked drawing every day for the entire month of October - a challenge meant to develop both your drawing-skills and practicing working under tight deadlines. I've been posting these on Reddit and Tumblr, but I figured I could post them here as well :)

 

Here are the drawings for the first eight days of October:

 

DAY 1 (Maribel!)

DAY 2 (Mad Moles)

These are awesome, nice work Chameleon. The Sofia picture reminds me of the Steven Universe artstyle, and I love the blank look Yangus in the second image.

 

Oh, and Cannock fleeing. That one is pretty funny.

The Bombrock one reminds me of SU, funny enough(although I do see that in Sofia too now that you mention it).

That one is my favorite currently.

Maribels Naruto run is always great. But these are really cool. And I agree, I do think the one with Prince Charmles and Harry is my favorite.

And here's today's picture! This was pretty challenging, as I'm not really used to drawing animals  :)

Thank you! Animals are really difficult to draw for me, so I'm glad you think it looks good :)

 

And here's today's picture of my favourite DQV wife!

I already commented on many of these on DA, but I'll say it again: I love them.

 

And Flora is my favorite, too. :)

I think it may be related with the fact the cat looks realistic, while she was going for a more cartoonish look.

 

Only after being comfortable with something can it be transformed to a different style.

 

Is that it, Chameleon?

Oh hey, I didn't realize you were on the Den as well! Thank you for all your comments, it makes me really happy to know people like my art :)

I'm not very active on Twitter, but tweeting them out does sound like a good idea! I'll let you know once they're up, thanks Woodus!

When I drew the sabrecat, I looked up pictures of actual tigers for reference, so you're not wrong - the sabrecat does look more realistic than the hero. Part of it is also that it was pretty late when I drew this picture, and I wanted to go to bed, so I didn't put quite as much detail into the hero as I did on the sabrecat  :)

Thanks Emptilion! I wanted to draw a picture based on the Cave of Betrayal segment for a while, so I worked pretty hard on this one, I'm glad you like it!

 

For today's picture, I wanted to try and draw an environment - one of my weak points, along with animals. It's a bit rough in comparison to my other drawings, but I have to practice to get better after all :)

For today's picture, the housewives of destiny! Why draw only one when you can draw them all?

Wow, thanks! I'm glad to hear you like the Observatory one, since I was kind of mixed on it myself. 

 

For today's picture, Dragon Quest VIII's cutest enemy!
