Inktober Day 18 – A cupcake

Inktober Day 18 – A cupcake

My husband Paul said that this cake leapt out to him from the picture like it was real and was making him think he could eat it and was making him hungry!  What do you think?  Is this really good enough to eat?

Inktober Day 16 – A bedraggled cat

Inktober Day 16 – a bedraggled cat.

 

I didn’t have much time to do the big picture I wanted to today, but I managed to do this quick image for inktober; unusually for me, I sketched this with a pen only, I didn’t pencil it first then go over it with inks like I normally do and I am quite pleased with the result, it does need a bit more work to it (which I admit will not be done), but first attempt at sketching with pen only isn’t a bad turn out!

I didn’t think I could do anything like this, I am surprised, I know some of the colouring is wrong, but I am trying to get used to sharpies not being the colour of the lids!

Inktober Day 12 – The Kappa

The Kappa – Yokai of Japan

Today’s Inktober is based on a Japanese demon known as The Kappa part of the Yokai demons, he lives in embodiments of water, rivers, lakes and ponds.

Kappas are renowned for their obsession and passion for cucumbers and therefore locals often give offerings of cucumbers at festivals to the kappa’s to keep them from becoming harmful to the villagers.

Kappas have a naturally forming dip at the top of their heads which constantly hold water, if the water was to be accidentally spilled out, the kappa can become extremely weak or die.  It is said, if you are by an embodiment of water and you see a large aquatic humanoid which represents a human, frog and tortoise mixed together, sometimes they may seem like half duck and turtle that is a kappa and that if you do not have a cucumber to hand, this creature will either rape you anally and steal a part of your soul or tear your limbs apart as their second favourite form of food; So what do you do to ensure you are safe from this creature if you can’t give it an offering – you bow, these creatures are awfully polite and will bow back at you, spilling the water from their heads and rendering them helpless until they can top the water back up in its head giving you enough time to scarper!  Despite how evil all of this sounds, it is also thought that Kappas aren’t always malevolent, in fact often times they can be benevolent and help people who go fishing, particularly if they have been appeased with a cucumber or two.

In old Tokyo many people believed that if you ate cucumbers before going fishing you could prevent an attack, but then this act was banned by law because it was seen to be provoking the kappas to attack all the more!
