Inktober day 29

I haven't been into inktober this year, or at least not as much as I was last year. Have had some fun with all of my entries, but I don't think I'll do it again next year.

I've been wanting to try out an ink outline on a watercolor and all the B & W for inktober was making me long for some color. I tried it out on a piece of Arches 140lb hotpress that I had stretched. I'll have to play around with it again on the last peices of hot press. 

Go pledge to my Patreon and share it with your frineds! Spread the word, the struggle is real

P A T R E O N by Dtronaustin

I'm doing a Patreon now. I think it fits what I'm trying to do with my work better than the kickstarter I attempted to do with LENZ a few years ago. 

It's a really interesting concept and lord knows I could use some help. Being an independent artist and making creator owned content and comics is a real struggle. I try to not gripe about it because people don't come to DA for that, they come to see cool art. If any of you out there really like my work and want to help me out than that is awesome! You can pledge $1 a month and even that will help out! If I can get enough people to do that it really adds up. If you can't pledge then that's also cool (trust me I understand), but share it with friends who might be interested. This is really going to rely on a word of mouth kind of deal. 

I love making work and sharing it on here so I want to continue to be able to do that.

I could have sworn I put a watch on you several years ago, guess that's fixed now. I Naturally I can't help but support anyone else keeping the classic old school aesthetics (Otomo, Shirow, etc... nuff said) alive. Naturally because that's the place and point of reference I came from as well. Keep up the cool work man :)

No worries, and I appreciate all that you've said! :handshake: I'm a huge fan of your work!

You're totally welcome man, you have a pile of fantastic work yourself :) Anyone who does a Briareos Hecatonchires homage piece (and a damn fine one at that) is ace in my book ;) I also quite dig that you are doing a lot of classic cyberpunk-ish work with the screentone ink combo that those of us that grew up on 80s manga will always remember fondly. It's not like tones ever left manga, it's just that when most of us first saw that technique in the 80s (Shirow, Otomo, Kishiro) it was an inspiring revelation as to approaching pen and ink work.
