arte colonial


Inktober days 2 to 6! All coloured digitally (because I like colours and I do what I want :P) which may not entirely be true to the spirit of the challenge? That said, inking with an actual pen on actual paper has been a tricky yet satisfying experience for me, I feel like I’m learning a lot :)

Also here’s day one, separate from the rest because it would’ve messed with the layout:

Days 1 and 2 are Tang dynasty Chinese fashion, days 3 and 4 are 18th Century American fashion and days 5 and 6 are Taisho era Japanese fashion. They are sort of historically accurate, but not really (whoops.)

I woke up this morning with an image of mccree curled in a ball clutching his lil hat, spinning in outer space in my head, so I made it happen. I wouldn’t mind making a gif of it, but i don’t think im good enough to try that yet XD
