Day 11, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Window."

 

This is inspired by a zen window I saw looking out onto a garden. It's Prismacolors on black paper.

I did it again...

...my day 10 drawing also works for the next day (11) on a different list. I swear I didn’t look. 

 

This image was inspired, believe it or not, by the earliest works of Piet Mondrian.

If Mondrian is well known it is for his very abstract paintings that consisted of black lines and blocks of primary colors. But before those, starting out, what he was fascinated by was things like stained glass windows, clear-ish window panes, or criss-crossing tree branches. Anything where the colors in the background were divided up by stark intersecting lines.

Day 12, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Fallen Angel."

 

A quote from Shakespeare's "Macbeth":

 

"Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell:
Though all things foul would wear the brows of grace,
Yet grace must still look so."

So I am well behind at this point, but I feel ok about it because I've seen a lot of theater and painted minis over the last several days. And I've also got quick sketch ideas does for most of what I'm late on, so I just need to lay down ink.

 

Again: these are just quickly sketched ideas...

 

09 Oct: "dusk + red crowned crane"

10 Oct: "seance + dragon tree"

11 Oct: "window + Pacific pocket mouse"

IMG_20191013_122213365.thumb.jpg.da2fcff0a4b2ff5718e16d2813d8e4ad.jpg

 

 

 

I wasn't able to go to the art supply store as intended, but I dug around at home and found that I have two packs of artist trading cards, which are Bristol in a smooth finish and a vellum finish. So the pocket mouse stained glass window is on smooth Bristol, we'll see how it goes with the markers.

Day 13, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Apothecary."

 

Another tribute to the World of Darkness campaign set in East Germany in the 1980s (and some Old School type brush and ink illustration):

I had a plan, it was a good plan, where I would finish snow (day 11) early and then have lots of time to work on dragon (day 12). Saturday I was overcome by Garfield Nap Attack Syndrome. So now I am playing catch-up by combining Dragon and Ash. 

 

Anybody interested in WiP snaps?

 

It will probably be tomorrow before I post the finished version.

When I did a google image search on Ash (because I had no good idea how to ink that or much inspiration at all) do you know what turned up?

 

1000 variations of the kid from the Pokemen franchise, and nothing else in the first gazillion hits. 

 

Apparently that’s his or her name. Who knew?  Everybody that is not me is who....

Ash is also a tree; often referenced in ... druidic ritual? wiccan ritual?  Oak, Ash and Thorn (probably hawthorne) are often used for such things. I don't know if that helps any, but... might give you an alternative to search?

      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!
