Well here are some Snapes (+ one Brynhild) that I drew for Inktober. Those are days 9, 11 and 13.

...They're not as nice as Day 4, but I'm not finding it easy to come up with something good every day XD. Little Snape portraits are my drawing equivalent of comfort food, so as I try to keep up with Inktober, now and then I take recourse to these simple things.

I drew this Morgause with little Mordred on Day 5, but was really unhappy with her.

I don't know what it is - Morgause is just difficult? :/

Fortunately on Day 12 I managed a really cute young Gawain. I felt a bit foolish for wanting to draw him playing the flute, because it's tricky to get the hands right - I needed reference for that. But I'm really pleased with the result.

Finally, because my Morgause picture convinced me that I'm useless at drawing women, I attempted a Morgana on Day 14. Morgana nearly always works for me, which is just great. I love Morgana :).

Last one for today, I promise :). On my Tumblr account, I offered to do prompts for Inktober, and here is the first, for [personal profile] cabepfir. She requested a character from Oscar Wilde. I came up with one she probably wouldn't have imagined, but there you go.

You don't really read Wilde for his characters, do you. Most of the time they are vehicles for particular ideas; they aren't really people of flesh and blood. Arguably the most complex of Wilde's characters is Herod in Salomé. Hence: my favourite.

I rather think he steals Herodias's eyeliner.

It bugs me that in the Richard Strauss opera, Herod is turned into a comical character. He isn't comical. If you make him comical, you haven't understood him. No really. You leave my Herod alone.
