BTS (방탄소년단) meets INKTOBER 2017
This is the result of Inktober 2017.
I followed Inktober’s official 2017 prompt list and picked the first 7 words from the list. Those words were Swift, Divided, Poison, Underwater, Long, Sword, and Shy.
I’ve assigned each member a word, then from there I started to sketch. The words helped me generate ideas on what to draw. I knew I wanted to draw each BTS members’ faces, surrounded by flora, fauna, with accents of insects/animals. The members faces were based on their photo shoot during their Love Yourself: HER album. After roughly inking the sketches, I colored them on Photoshop. 3-4 colors were used to highlight important parts of the illustration.
BTS V (Kim Taehyung)
Inktober No. 1 SWIFT: You are a winged creature swiftly slipping away from my fingers. Beautiful yet fragile.
BTS JIN (Kim Seokjin)
Inktober No. 2 DIVIDED: These flowers are for someone who can never see or hold them. Still, I bought them to lay on HER grayed tombstone.
BTS RAP MONSTER (Kim Namjoon)
Inktober No. 3 POISON: What does the God of Destruction drink? Vipers venom and opium in one concoction. Cheers!
BTS SUGA (Min Yoongi)
Inktober No. 4 UNDERWATER: Let me hear the hymn of the SEA and hope to see hope under this drowning water.
BTS JIMIN (Park Jimin)
Inktober No. 5 LONG: There are beauty and DANGER on these long stemmed bloody roses, but I’ll pick them all, FOR YOU.
BTS JUNGKOOK (Jung Jungkook)
Inktober No. 6 SWORD: Weapon of choice. If the lyrics hone my blade and the rhythm become my shield, then Music would become my sword.
BTS JHOPE (Jung Hoseok)
Inktober No. 7 SHY: Girl, that DIMPLE is ILLEGAL. No, it’s dangerous, oh yes. So I call you illegirl.
