Attempting InkTober, Nefol Style



So it’s been years since I’ve actually drawn in ink. But, yesterday I picked up a new set of pens and a new sketch pad, though I’d forgotten about the whole InkTober thing until today.

I know that I said I wanted to write out the story of Nefol, but then I decided to see what it would be like if I rough inked by hand and painted the outcomes frame by frame instead. So every day this month, I’m going to attempt to draw a frame from the Nefol story. If I like it, then I may continue it in a comic form. We’ll have to see how much time it takes!

The first frame is a young JinRai sitting at a campfire where he is responding to his father after a story. The top is the plain ink, the bottom is the quick paint version. Not too terrible for a first ink in many, many years. I could certainly use some practice to get a bit more line confidence and structure, though.


I'm a technical writer by day, gaming gal by night. I have a wide array of gaming interests, though I most often blog about MMOs, RPGs, and Nintendo fanstuffs. Like what you just read? Check out my Webcomic and Fantasy Fiction projects!

      1. Sounds like it’ll be an ADVENTURE!!! 😀

        I was actually just thinking a couple of days ago that it seemed like a long time since you’d done any art outside of your usual Wayrift pages. So glad to see you’re up to something else! 🙂


        1. Yeah, I also think about how little art I’ve done outside of Wayrift. Just feel like I have so little time, and most my art efforts are taken by Wayrift since it’s a pretty sizable chunk of my free time to do.

          I do have several moments of inspiration for so many pictures I never sit down to draw. So I hope maybe doing some free-form stuff will help.
