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?

Appears because I've over committed myself I'm at least starting off with the half marathon version. So, here's day one, ring

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.

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

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

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?)

      If you would like to just get two of the three books, the best way to do so is to pledge for one of the books, then increase your pledge total to include the Add-on price for the second book below. 
       
      We will be using BackerKit as our pledge manager and that's where you'll have the opportunity to make those specific choices. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or by messaging me here on Kickstarter.
       
      THE ART OF…
      For more than 30 years I have spent a great deal of time talking with hundreds of artists who paint miniatures – for fun, for a living, for relaxation – and I am always intrigued to learn more about their philosophies, approaches, and processes. Some of these artists have spent decades refining their technical skills, while others bring their “traditional” art training to the miniatures world. Some draw inspiration from the most unusual of places, while others find it in popular culture turned on its head.
       
      THE ART OF… series of books will highlight fantastic miniatures artists from around the world, bringing their thoughts and passions to stand alongside their magnificent and inspirational work. We’ll be featuring both individuals and groups in this series, as we explore innovative approaches, studied refinements, and even tangential influences.
      These books will be both a celebration of the artist and their art, as well as an opportunity for them to present their thoughts on particular topics and let the world know why they approach their art the way they do. These will not be “How To” books, but rather complements to their existing outlets work that the artists are already doing.
      This is just the beginning of THE ART OF… series. With so many wonderful miniatures artists, there is so much potential to explore.
       
      Volume 1 – THE ART OF... Miniature Monthly
      Miniature Monthly is a collective of three professional painters from the US – Aaron Lovejoy, Elizabeth Beckley, and Matt DiPietro – who have a Patreon (Miniature Monthly) producing painting tutorial videos. All three are (or have been) studio painters for a number of different companies and they each bring something different to the table. This book will be a high-quality, softback artbook of 128 pages.
      Aaron will cover:
      • Creating a team/collective – looking at The Painters’ Guild and Miniature Monthly
      • Striking a balance between Speed and High-end painting
      • Freehand – Adding depth and texture
      Elizabeth will cover:
      • Smooth Skin – featuring work on the Kingdom Death minis
      • Chibi Art – how painting chibis differs from “standard” miniatures
      Matt will cover:
           • Ancient methods with infinite possibilities.
      • The Art of miniatures, – Finding your voice and engaging with the audience.

      • The Black Phalanx – a kitbashed project

      Volume 3 – THE ART OF... Ana Polanšćak
      Ana is a professional miniatures painter from Croatia who is widely regarded for her world-building miniatures art.

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.
       

       
      More Photos Below the Spoiler:
       
      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      This is Reaper's Elise the Witch.
      SKU. 02863 ( Metal Figure)
       
      Once she was part of a big Halloween Diorama but that didn't survive the move.
      I was able to save the minis though.
       
      I rebased her, gave her some highlights/ repainted parts.
      She's back in action now, ready to turn you into a frog or a willing servant.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      All HAIL WOOF!
