Day thirty one and the final day Inktober!  Today's prompt is "ripe" so here is the pirate Hector Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean with a ripe apple that he longed to enjoy after his curse.

Why can I hear the line from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl "Not you Jack, we named the monkey Jack" playing in the back of my head when I see this? Awesome work again.

Thank you so much!  I think my favorite one that I worked on was actually the one for the prompt "Snow" - I think the simple composition and gentle shading was fun to work on :>

Oh I do LOVE that one!! You've been illustrating for many years now. Do you feel you learned anything new from this inktober?

So this year I think I walked away with a firmer grasp on how to shade with the markers without relying on too many of the "in between" shades.  Basically, I'm blending more with contrasting shades vs trying to create a smooth gradient.  I like the effect more since it causes sharper and more distinct areas of shadow.  I'm also discovering that I'm preferring more chaos vs control in my technique.  I think next year I will use india ink or watercolor since linework and copics are beginning to feel like they are stifling me from a more organic style.

It's kinda weird seeing realistic human art from you, but gotta say it looks really good!
