inkshift

Happy Monday everybody! I give you this timelapse of me inking lift girl's hair with a Winsor & Newton brush and best ink on the planet: Deleter Black 4! Forgot I made this so enjoy this surprise Monday morning treat. 🐼🐼🐼 I need a hashtag for my strong roboladies. What do you think is a good hashtag?? #mayhemmaydens2018 #mayhem #winsorandnewton #deleter #timelapse #strongwomen #deleterblack4 #inking #brush #ineedahashtag #mondaymotivation #monday #portland #pdx #pnw #portlandartist #pdxartist #portlandart #inkedgirls #inkshift

Happy Caturday! I give you my main inks for this bad ass lady (and my mustache). She's my first entry into #mayhemmaydens2018, a challenge started by my intensely amazing bros @dimitrispantazisart, @terrance_unchained, @steps2dragon, @daveybaker_art, @hugobarbatruc and @filipz to draw bad ass ladies for the entire month of May! She looks a bit like medieval Sombra from Overwatch according to my stepson. I also saw Infinity Wars last night, it was....Thanosfying. Also: Squidward. #nospoilers I may or may not have been inspired to give her a gauntlet of her own. πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 Here's a question: who is your favourite bad ass/strong/amazing lady? 😎😎😎 #happycaturday #caturday #timelapse #mayhemmaydens2018 #infinitywar #infinitywarspoilerswithoutcontext #avengers #thanos #thanosfying #spiderman #sombra #overwatch #strongwomen #armor #mustache #portland #blackandwhite #portlandartist #pdx #pnw #pentelbrushpen #pocketbrush #inkshift

A throwback to last year, too busy right now, but it's still sadly relevant. We need The Force now more than ever. Our proximity to the Death Star we call the Trump administration looms ever closer. I sure hope someone finds that ventilation shaft real soon and gets us out from under this insane situation we managed to get ourselves into. #maythefourthbewithyou #resist #notmypresident #dumptrump #princessleia #leia #fanart #copic #gasenfude #r2d2 #c3po #starwars #starwarsday #jedi #portland #pdx #pnw #caturdayeve #pdxart #pdxartist #portlandartist #portlandcreatives #ink #inkshift

Doodle doodle doodle. Waiting for the exterminator to come. This was done with a Winsor & Newton brush, Kaimei, Kuretake 40 and a Pentel pocketbrush. #doodle #illustratorsoninstagram #illustration #cyclops #wolverine #kaimei #winsorandnewton #kuretakebrushpen #pdx #portland #portlandcreatives #portlandartist #pdxart #pnw #inkshift #tbt

Swipe to see my finished dancing robospacelady, added some inkwashes. The lady was done with my trusty Kaimei and the alien, who doesn't resemble me in the least, was done with a Winsor & Newton brush. I'm totally under the weather but forging on relatively valiantly 😎🐼😎. I'm curious to know: what is your favourite part in this piece? #alittlesick #alottawork #mylife #thisladyishavingfunthough #aliens #strongwomen #thickthighssavelives #dance #pdx #pnw #portlandartist #portland #pdxartist #lalala #kaimei #inkwash #mustache #inkshift

Aaaand here's the completed version! The result of my challenge to do a #quickiemickey by my good buddy @burchworksstudio. I also challenge @cartoonmonkeystudio and @tylerbence_art. #shouldergunsmakeverythingbetter #quickiemickey #mickeymouse #donaldduck #starwars #disney #dontsuemeok #lololol #kaimei #didimentionshouldergunsalready #portland #pdx #pnw #timelapse #inking #portlandartist #pdxartist #inkshift

I was challenged to do a #quickiemickey by my good buddy @burchworksstudio. So I couldn't resist giving The Mouse my robot treatment. This took about 45 minutes so not exactly quickie but close enough! I hereby challenge @dimitrispantazisart, @cgrackham and @anthonywheelerart. Have at it, gentlemen! #shouldergunsmakeverythingbetter #quickiemickey #mickeymouse #donaldduck #starwars #disney #dontsuemeok #lololol #kaimei #didimentionshouldergunsalready #portland #pdx #pnw #timelapse #inking #portlandartist #pdxartist #inkshift

A little WIP on a Caturday eve. Can't wait to ink her. Imminent death at the hands of a robotically enhanced lady was never more exciting. I am still working away ovah heah but I hope you are all having a lovely night! #strongwomen #redpencil #mykindafridaynight #exceptimworking #andnokim #andidrewthisearlier #sorryilied #happycaturdayevethough #fridaynight #wip #thefutureisfemale #evenifitdoeslookabitdystopic #portlandartist #pdxartist #portland #pnw #pdx #swords #swordswoman #inkshift

Happy Thursday! Here's a throwback to my first serious Inktober attempt: fan art for Battle Chicken, a charming character created by the father of Inktober, @jakeparker. Jake & Inktober were the primary reasons I got back into illustration so I am most grateful for that initial spark! I'm gonna be wrapping up a project here in the next week or so so expect more output from me soon. Lots of love to all of you, I hope you're all having an amazing day and if not, I know you can make it so because you are all awesome. #youtotallyare #nowgoforth #andbeyou #becauseyourule #tbt #throwbackthursday #thursday #jakeparker #battlechicken #imallergictochicken #notkidding #lovethisonethough #breakfast #portlandartist #pdx #portland #pnw #inktober #okbye #inkshift

A little WIP of a dancing robot lady. I'm working on more expressive poses and well, happier characters. My characters are always scowling and/or serious. So I'm switching it up a little while staying true to my loves: beautiful women and robots. Happy Sunday to you all!! #happysunday #sundayfunday #artistsoninstagram #ink #wip #illustratorsoninstagram #dancing #pnw #pdx #portlandartist #portland #dutch #pdxartist #pdxcreatives #kaimei #robots #strongwomen #inkshift

I had 15 minutes yesterday so I drew this lady from reference, straight to ink. A great reflection of my day yesterday. πŸ™„πŸ˜‘Today is already looking up! It's ALMOST sunny in Portland. Repeat after me: finished not perfect. How are you today?? 🐼😎🐼 #caseofthemondays #finishednotperfect #thanksjake #artistsoninstagram #kaimei #reference #portlandartist #pdxartist #pnw #portland #pdx #ink #inkshift

You knew it was coming! Can you see a pattern? 🐼🐼🐼 Happy Sunday, you lovely people! #artvsartist #artistsoninstagram #robots #redheads #strongwomen #weirdness #thatsme #portland #pdx #pnw #inkshift
