Monstervember 2019 Day 1 Sail

Monstervember 2019 Day 1 Sail

I’m starting a new art challenge for the month of November. It’s called Monstervember!

This one is a challenge prompt that’s brand new this year, and I hope that people will join in and have fun with it. It’s not about doing daily drawings, it’s about having fun and improving your art skills with practice. And making cool monsters.

Today is Day 1 and the prompt is sail. Nothing can make one want to drop their sails and make haste across the open ocean like being chased by a Kraken.

Feel free to join in on this challenge. You don’t have to be a pro artist and you can make the prompt with any art media you want. Join the facebook group or just use #monstervember. So we can find your art and give it all the love it deserves.

Inktober 2019 Day 18 Misfit

Day 18 of inktober has arrived and it is the biggest misfit of all.

Misfit can be a confusing word to use on someone. It can be used in a good or bad way. The first thing that comes to anyones mind of course is the misfit song from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer tv special. It taught us that being a misfit is sometimes what makes a difference in an otherwise plain world. We love misfits yet we present them in both good and bad ways. It can make someone quite confused. I know I’ve been.

I would try to be the same as everyone else but in the end it didn’t lead me to what I was desiring in life. I especially felt this at the end of college. I felt everyone that broke the rules and did things out of the norm were getting all the rewards while us that followed the rules often got last place.

This inktober has helped me embrace my misfit awkwardness and has led me to vastly improving my drawing skill. Whether it gets noticed on social media or not doesn’t matter to me, because I’m doing this for myself and my own self esteem. Embrace being a misfit because you walk among other beings who are also misfits and pretend not to be.

See you tomorrow for day 19, Sling.

Inktober 2019 Day 8 Frail

Inktober 2019 Day 8 Frail

Inktober 2019 Day 8 Frail

Welcome to the 8th day of 31 days of Inktober. Tonight we have a frail subject on display. Or is it subjects?

I tried adding multiple levels to this drawing. One you think of frail in this picture I assume you instantly go to the flower. Much like the rose in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the rose is the most fragile thing and must be protected. But what is the second level of frail in this drawing you say?

Well it’s the monsters. If you look one side is not like the other. The right is more sinister and seems to be going through a transformation of tendrils and claws growing everywhere. While the left side has a more (if you can call it that) basic non sinister form. The three creatures center stage are in the process of being half transformed by this sinister evil infecting everything.

I don’t know if this technically comes off as frail, perhaps it’s more corruption then frail. But I wanted to try adding a second level to a drawing tonight. And hey, I still had a lot of fun. Did this one with the ink well again and had a lot better control.

See you tomorrow for Day 9, Swing.
