I felt like I did a lot of drawings during Inktober, but I still have around 7 days of drawings still to go! Also, how is it only a month till Christmas?!
The weeks just get crazier I swear! After all the things that have happened this year, I really do wonder what 2017 can throw at me that would still make me feel surprised.
What a crazy day and crazier world we live in.
True fact, I struggled a lot looking at spider references for this picture. Originally I was going to draw huntsman spiders, but just couldn’t handle a full page of image search results!
Love deer, such majestic animals.
And because this is my little corner of the internet, I just need to use this space to vent for a second. Had a great weekend with friends, but told a pretty low level lie to my family to avoid getting into a situation with them. I covered my tracks carefully and without any outside influence, they will never know what I said wasn’t the complete truth. HOWEVER, I just had a major realisation that there is one extremely loose string I didn’t think about tying up, and it will most probably get me busted. So now, I’m going to have to deal with two situations because I made a bad call. Fan-fucking-tastic. Have I learnt anything from this? Yeah, be honest; it’s a lot less effort.
So how was your weekend?
Scandinavian folklore is extremely interesting; I highly recommend playing “Year Walk” as it does a brilliant job of introducing the topic and some of the beliefs. Next thing you know, it’ll be 1am, you’ll have a browser full of tabs open and be fully engrossed in finding out more.
And on that note, I’ve run out of days in October. But why let the fun end there?! Like last year, over the next few weeks I’ll be catching up on the prompts that I missed drawing Drawlloween, so the ghosts and ghouls aren’t going away just yet!
And for all of you who also took part in Inktober, whether you made it through 31 days or just 3, congratulations! Every bit of drawing helps to improve, so I hope you’ve all learnt a little and had a lot of fun.
Nearly the end of the month; a lot of catching up still needs to happen…
Bit of an alien autopsy for this one
Just scraping in there!Legs inspired by the Strandbeest; that was one cool piece of engineering.
Portal is such a great game; if you’ve got some free time and want to try an new spin on puzzle solving, I definitely recommend it.
Also, I’ve been watching BoJack Horseman, another think I definitely recommend checking out. Never has an alcoholic horse actor made me laugh or pulled on my heart strings so much.
While more Nosferatu than Dracula, I think the idea still comes across.
Basically how I felt for the past month. What is sunlight? Why does my laptop not adjust to a good angle so I permanently have to hunch while at uni? So glad to be free and able to stretch and go outside again!
Finally finished uni for the year; didn’t think I’d make it out alive. So here is an inktober with a little more time invested into it!
Phew, uni got hectic this past week. Just one more piece of assessment and then I’ve finished third year. Craziness.
In the interim, have some goblins throwing pumpkins!
Okay, so I don’t even know what I’m doing with this numbering scheme. Technically this was the drawing for the 4th October prompt, but I already have 2 other days labelled as the 4th, so I don’t even know anymore! This would be so much easier if I did actually post everyday!
Looks like a manageable trend is follow main prompt every second day and quick doodles on the days between! Today is a little Frankenstein’s monster. In the novel, he really was just misunderstood, then cinema portrayed him as something evil; such a travesty!
(Also cracked out something other than just black and white for the first time in quite a while. Introducing gray; a revolutionary new addition!)
Finished the details on this one this morning and began working on Tuesday prompt. Phew, trying not to fall too far behind!
Didn’t have time to finish off Monday’s prompt (it’s nearly there but needs a lot of detailing, regrets), so instead, have this cool little guy that I doodled.
Second day down! Thankgod for time zones because technically I’m onto the 3rd here in Aus (but shhh, no one needs to know).
And just like last year, Inktober is right in the busiest part of semester again! And just like last year, I told myself that I would hold off partaking until later in the month (once I’d finished all of my assessment), but look where we are now.
Today’s prompt was “Return from the Dead”. If you want to play along, I will be going off this great set of prompts by Brian Soria which you can find >>here<<
As with last year, I will be doing my best to keep up to date, however I have a portfolio worth 100% of my grade due at the end of the week, so I will do my very best.
