Inktober 2018. Day 31, The Brothers Grimm

I’ve known for a while that for my last image for inktober this year I would be drawing the Brothers Grimm themselves. Originally I had no intention of drawing anything else, but as I was working on it I decided to include characters from some of their most famous tales around them and I’m very glad I did as this is my favourite image that I’ve done for this month. I used a famous portrait of the two brothers which was actually drawn by their brother as a reference.

Inktober 2018. Day 30, Godfather Death

I chose to illustrate this story for day 30 as I think the imagery is very fitting for Halloween. I quite like the idea of Death’s cloak constantly moving and I let the ink bleed into the aper to try and convey this, but I would love to try this with a larger scale image to make it more effective.
