9. Spider Baby This is Virginia, known as the Spider Baby in the 1967 campy horror film of the same name. She is obsessed with bugs and apparently behaves likes them and even eats them. Ive never seen this movie, and now I know never to do so.

8. Yokai - Hashihime Yōkai are a class of supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons in Japanese folklore. Ive chosen Hashihime for todays drawing. According to Yokai.com, they are intensely jealous goddesses who inhabit very old and very long bridges. They are commonly depicted wearing white robes, white face-paint, an iron trivet, and carrying five candles. . . . #yokai #hashihime #mabsdrawlloweenclub #drawlloween #drawlloween2018 #inktober2018 #inktober #dippen #penandink #IllustratorsofInstagram #tonedtan #sketchbook #traditionalart #handdrawn #illustration #drphmartins #indiaink #kuretake #whiteink #gellyroll #gotink #instart #illustrationgram #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #doodle #inkdrawing #inksketch #inkart #inkartist .

Introductions before #drawlloween and #inkotober! Im Stephanie, and Ive been drawing most of my life, completely self-taught. I put it away for many years while I built a career and a family, but this past year Ive really been trying to get back to it. I like both colorful whimsical art and dark gothic stuff, so my feed is kind of all over the place. My husband and son are my biggest fans and I’m grateful they put up with it all. This will be my very first Drawlloween (and first Inktober) so Im excited to meet new artists and improve my skills along the way!

Trying to prep for #inktober - this is the first time Ive used a dip pen, or illustrated with bottled ink - and I AM HOOKED. This was SO FUN!! The fine detail you can get is incredible! . . . #inktober2018 #penandink #IllustratorsofInstagram #makegoodart #popart #sketchbook #pencilsketch #traditionalart #handdrawn #illustration #drphmartins #indiaink #kuretake #whiteink #gotink #instart #illustrationgram #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #doodle #inkdrawing #inksketch #inkart #inkartist
