arbel420 #inktober 19th SCI-FI/FANTASY (suggested by @cbcanga & @gogiland). What a treat! I can't think of a better theme for an illustrator to play with. I can do a whole month of just sci-fi/fantasy ink drawings. Hell, I can do a whole year. Did this quick little drawing in 15 minutes. I love Godzilla, I love robots (and even more giant robots), love to see them toe to toe fighting and ruining everything in their path. 2d

arbel420 #inktober 18th debt. Yesterday's idea was WW2 (suggested by @gogiland and @cbcanga). The truth is, I kinda struggled with what to do for this one. There are so many iconic images that came to mind- D-day, Persecution of Jews, the pacific section, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, nazis, generals, the blitz, the march on Paris... Too many bad things that happened, way too many deaths and all the evil one can imagine. I didn't want to fall into cliches and/or do a caricature, this one is way too close to home for me. Finally, I chose this view. The train entrance to Auschwitz. This horrible view of this most evil place. The death camp of Auschwitz was the last stop for many. Too many. Unfortunately, it is one of the sad symbols of this terrible war. 2d
  •   cbcanga Good call... nice 2d
  •   arbel420 @cbcanga thanks 2d
  •   teedraw This one too! Haha I'm not used to seeing you make art like this 1d
  •   arbel420 @teedraw I started out drawing with a pen over 34 years ago. Drawing with a pen is my true love. I also do watercolors, acrylics, ink, mixed media, pencils, crayons.. Heck, I'll draw on the sand with a stick when I have nothing else... Thanks for all the support, bud. Keep it cool 1d

arbel420 #Inktober 15th - ANGER detail 6d

arbel420 #October 15th - today's topic was ANGER (suggested by @cbcanga & @gogiland). For this one I used "angry" lines. I usually don't draw like that but I'm also usually not that angry anyway. I DID enjoy trying this style as I believe part of the idea in #Inktober is to challenge oneself to try and experiment new things in a limiting media. 6d

arbel420 #Inktober 13th. Today's idea was WW1 (World War 1), suggested by @gogiland and @cbcanga. The first Great War lasted for four and a half years, between 1914-1918 and was the cause of over 15 million deaths around the world. One of the deadliest conflicts in human history, mainly because of technological advancements of the industrial revolution. Human beings are so fucking stupid they always find new ways to kill more people with new technologies. Guns, bombs, tanks, warships and whatnot, were in full effect on all fronts. Through my research for this piece I was left with a big sadness. Visually, the biggest impact, for me, was the complete devastation of areas. Front lines that look like scorched earth, something like what we think of when we think of a meteor falling to earth. The difference is, THIS was entirely man-made. I made this lonely machine gun fighter, on this scorched land to represent the fact that at the end it's all part of the human spirit. We make it so only we can stop it. I hate wars. Peace. 1w

arbel420 #Inktober12. The theme for today was FIRE (suggested by @cbcanga and @gogiland). Almost immediately, I thought of FIRE in more from a philosophical view and less literal. I started to think about "the fire within"- the things that run our soul engine. For me, out of my family, art was always there, since I can remember myself as a little person. Although I make mostly digital art today, my favorite tool is the simple, black, ink, Pilot pen. It's been fueling my FIRE for a long time now. But.... Maybe I shouldn't read to much into it and just enjoy it as a fun doodle. peace, good night. 1w
