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?)

      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!

      AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came!
       
      This was my entry in a painting league at another  miniatures forum.
       
      In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style.

      It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being.
       
      The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As one of the commenters in the LPL-post stated: "Less is more".
       
      Lots more pics, but yah gotsa clicks!
