Inktober Day 5: D is for Deadpool.

If you’re late on board, I thought it’d be fun this “inktober” to do a super hero alphabet, seeing as I generally don’t draw superheroes, so thought it’d be a good chance to stretch (and a chance to really get away from digital inking and back into some sort of comfort with a brush). Day 1 of Inktober, though, coincided with “Day Of Dredd”, so I pushed pause on the superhero alphabet specifically to do a dredd. Which is why the numbers don’t quite line up with the letters of the alphabet. I’m sure you’ll not mind.

Here we go: D is for Deadpool. It was starting to feel like I was either starting to repeat myself or on the verge of doing so (I realise most will not think that) each pose was unique, but it was single character, mid distance/close shot with extreme perspective. No really attempt to build a narrative around the image.

Yes I realise I’m being a big stupidly precious over what amounts to an exercise to get you to sketch more. Anyway, this deadpool feels like it was too much work (though it wasn’t really, it just took all day because .. family.)

Hope you like it. (And if you LOVE it, you can buy it off me for £75 incl p&p it’s A4 on Bristol Board and the pencils are on the reverse side  – just contact me!)
