§ Inktober is now InkOver, but there were are tons of wonderful artists who did amazing daily drawing on Twitter and Instagram. . This month, we’re featuring the work of Estevao PB who goes by the pen name Epebe. I’m a big fan of Dark Souls and loved to see his Inktober drawings of all of the Dark Souls III bosses. In addition to these, Estevao also does a number of other illustrations and beautiful D&D-like fantasy work. You can follow him on Twitter, Tumblr or order commissions from him too.

You should peruse through the #Inktober to find some really neat work. Praise the Sun
