Day 21 :: Elephant / Oliphant


(From the Undying Tales List)




While I was refining the outlines I was thinking ahead to what I wanted to do about shading it in, if I wanted to put color in the eyes, about how I wanted to render it, which weight of pens I would use...


So many options!!


Instead I decided to stop and leave this one ‘colorable’. I could have it copied somewhere, maybe try different things. Also at some point my great nephews and great nieces might get a crack at coloring this.

Inktober Day 21, Whynoctober prompt "Exhume."




Those of you who read my World of Darkness-inspired fiction last year - this is that Persian vampire, and the hapless American adventurer-geologist she's rescuing, outside of Cairo during WWII.

Elephants with four tusks (like the Mûmak beasts imagined in a certain Peter Jackson movie, but much less massive) once existed. There were Stegotetrabelodons:



...and another species taxonomic wizards have decided to name Gomphotheres. Both long extinct. Both known only as fossils. 


I had a model for the day 21 picture. Meet F-MU1:

Resting, Fungal, Pumpkin thingy, Smolder, Pilot, Ghost, Water Buffalo...


...not really feeling the synergy. :unsure:


But I am slowly getting the Instagram caught up. Ornament is the latest to get out there. 




If I put two pix out there per day, while drawing one, I should catch up.

In order to catch up I ended up combining some themes. 


Day 22/23 :: Fungal Blight; Void; Smolder




Theme words are from Weirdtober, Cybertober, and Whynoctober. And thanks to @Cygnwulf for the faerie ring inspiration drawing that was from Day 1.


My story is that some crazed goblin shaman is fireballing a ring of shrooms one by one because he fears the Void that is forming within their midst. 


This is the first one where I gave up and turned the sketchbook sideways (landscape format).

I may go back and draw a Pangolin. 


Today’s choices:





White Winged Magpie

Pumpkin Glutton***



**I image searched this word and it was an even bigger disaster than the “moth girl” search. Not a single wrecked airplane,  no busted machines, broken girders, shattered structures, or electrical things spitting sparks....not one. It was all femme celebrities wearing costumes their mothers shoulda warned them about photographed at the moment the skimpy outfit failed in some way. Aaaarrgh. 


***I shudder :ph34r: to think what will turn up searching with “pumpkin glutton” :ik_oops:

That search was not nearly as bad as I thought:




You guys might enjoy this ^ time-lapsed video. About 6 minutes. Somebody draws a ravenous pumpkin using their SAI graphics program. (Poor little mice.)


Edit: I finally had an idea for the 24th. For the Drawltober Pumpkin Glutton no less. But no mice will be harmed in the making of this drawing...

Day 24 of Inktober with Dory Whynot prompt “Nails” and I’m caught up again!





The Naglfar is a longship made from dead men’s fingernails and toenails. When it is completed Loki and his daughter Hel and a crew of the dead will sail it to do battle with the gods at Ragnarok.


Edit: This is a tiny pic, three inches by four (plus paper borders). Chances are good it’s way bigger on the monitor than in real life.

      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!

      Below you will find a sample of two cards from each of the four Suits - Citadels, Chaos, Fish and Trees. Each Suit is comprised of 14 cards (2-10, Ace, Knave, Knight, Queen and King).

      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!
