Haven’t drawn anything for myself in a while. I’ve been working on some fashion items for an online game I play, so that’s re-introduced me to digital art. It’s nice, everything looks cleaner, and I have more effects I can use.
Unrelated, happy New Year to you all, I kind of dropped off the earth towards the end of December. Hopefully you’re all still doing well.
I used to be, once upon a time, and avid and voracious reader. Although these past few years, I find that I can barely make it past a few chapters. I’ve got five or so books started but left untouched and it’s quite sad.
The prompt today is “Teeth”, so have some dentures. I feel like I made these look nice and creepy, but I could have upped the creep factor if it had just been a glass overflowing with loose pulled teeth. Very happy with this though.
Saw Toni-Renea‘s Draw This In Your Style challenge and fell in love with her cute gorgon girl, so I drew my own version instead of an Inktober. I’ve been feeling kind of uninspired by the prompts lately, so it was pretty nice finding something that did make me want to draw.
Go see her wonderful work on Insta.

Day 20: Seasons, I was going to paint some cool sunflowers for Summer/Fall, but when that didn’t pan out I switched over to the season most people get excited for. The snowy trees were the most difficult to do, but they turned out well, I also really like the cabin.
Didn’t feel like doing an Inktober today, wanted to draw something colourful and bright. Eehh, that background is not the greatest, but after messing with it for a while, I’m willing to accept it won’t turn out quite how I want is as it was unplanned.
Day 17 was Book of Shadows, and day 18 is Familiar. Some people’s book of shadows are more understated than others so I tried to draw a worn looking notebook with light embossing. I drew a toad for the familiar and I think, while he looks mad, he turned out nicely. I opted to combine the two days because I had a hard time coming up with separate ideas for each day, and I’m quite pleased with the outcome.
Pumpkin: almost was unsuccessful with this one, I start 2 others only to abandon them, and return to this guy. Pretty pleased with how he turned out, tried to make him look “lit-from-within” and I think I achieved that. I’m also surprised I knocked this out since we’re still Marie Kondo-ing our kitchen. And I ran out of ink… So I had to use multiliners for this.
