Inktober/Drawlloween

Recommended Posts

So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts...

and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler.

So who else is up for the challenge?

Me! Me! I do! I ... Oh wait, I’ve already been namechecked.

 

Well, cool! I don’t know if I’m up for a solid 31 days of pen-and-ink drawings. I tend to mix up my media a bit, But I am going to try to do a drawing a day for the month. Hopefully that will pass muster.

All of a sudden I'm curious as to a)where my Copics are, and b)if they're still any good...  Kind of sort of tempting to do, since I never really seem to sit down and seriously commit to drawing >.>;;;;

Pen and Ink, pencil, water color, whatever... I think the real goal is to art every day. Whatever the medium.

I’m in. And I might even crosspost to Instagram. Maybe. (But I am very suspicious of it because it is in league with Facebook. :ph34r: :unsure: )

I may give it a go this year, I don’t really do 2d art but I want to. I think this would be a good motivator and a good way to start.

 

If anyone is interested, Stephanie Law posted another alternate list built around endangered species.

Are there expectations on quality of drawing or time spent? Is a 30sec stick figure sketch enough? I ask because I lack much actual drawing skill. I am tempted to try and do this with my daughter though. She loves to draw!

As I understand it (which is a tad wibbly - I only just took a close look at it yesterday), the idea is to get your art making flowing. Any level of experience, any level of skill, any amount of time is welcome, just get on out there and do a little daily art.

I know I've heard of Inktober more than once over the years, but never realized that there were so many themes. Guess it's really a thing now.

 

I have a cousin who is a professional illustrator/artist. I remember last year how he posted his Inktober drawings every day on Facebook (his theme was "number of heads = day number"). His creations were getting weirder and weirder, sometimes disturbing, sometimes. quite fanciful and children story-book worthy

I need to do more art in general and want to draw in specific, so I'm in too. I might use my reckless decks and story cubes for inspiration.

If doing something every single day is too intimidating, Drawtober shrunk their list this year:

Drawtober also encourages "drawing" in any medium you like.

This is likely the one that I'll be doing because I have too many other things I'm working on to devote daily time to 2D art that I don't do much of in the first place.

This is a perfectly legitimate reason to buy a new drawing journal, right?

Works for me...

 

I won’t be buying one though. Because I have used that excuse so many times previously.

There was something about going for every other day, every third day, two a week, analogous to folk who only run the 5K when there is a big running event. 

 

I think I might snag items off those alternate lists if (ok when) I (...ahem...) draw a blank on some of the original topics.  Like #13  Ash. 

 

Question: are we posting all our pix to this thread? ( That sounds like fun to me... @Crowley ? was that the plan?)

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      Hi!! my name is Katerina and I'm new to painting miniatures, I begun 
      with a miniature from NonSenseminiatures, the Barbarian, I buyed the 
      54mm because it's bigger and maybe easier to paint.
      I asked some help to NonSense and he already made a base coat for me, I 
      would like to get some help for painting because I see too much 
      information and don't know were begin.
      I already make painting but totally different
      Also he gave for me a discount code Katerina10%, because he will sell my 
      paints also!!!

      Story
      Hello, and welcome to the Foglio Portfolio!
      Kaja and Phil Foglio have illustrated 117 cards for Magic: The Gathering, with their first image included in Magic's very first expansion, Arabian Nights.  Here are all of the cards they've illustrated for the game.
      After being away from the game for many years, the Foglios are back to offer officially licensed Playmats and Prints of their most famous and popular Magic artwork.
      The Foglio Portfolio offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring your favorite Foglio art to your gaming table.
      Each Playmat has the following features:
      Premium Stitched Edge - A brand new offering from UltraPro, each mat will have high quality stitching around every edge, ensuring that your Playmat will last a very long time. Limited Edition - We will never be reprinting any of these Playmats with a stitched edge, ever again.  This is your only opportunity, ever, to get this artwork on a stitched playmat. (Playmats are printed in units of 50, so we'll print to demand, but no more than the closest unit of 50.) Signed by the Artist - Phil and Kaja will be hand signing each and every playmat. Minimal Logos - We've worked with UltraPro and Wizards of the Coast to minimize the impact of their logos as much as we possibly can. If you don't see your favorite piece of Foglio art in the options above, don't fret!  Additional Playmats will be unlocked through Stretch Goals.  
      If we meet all of our initial Stretch Goals, Backers will be able to vote for additional designs.  The design with the most votes will be added to the project.

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.

      I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. 
      Dominant paints used:
      Punk rock pink 09286
      Marid blue 89526
      Clear magenta 09098
      Regal purple 09238
      Clear purple 09099
      Nightmare black 09280
      Fair skin 09047
      Dark elf skin 09164
      Pure black 09037
      Pure white 09039
      Let me know what you think!
