I didn't even get into 'how do you get a myconid high (certain gasses? Acid? o.O ). 

I got looking at different kinds of fungus while I was painting the Fungal Queen, and it came in handy here. Although I think the Amanita worked better here than it did there. ;p

... okay, yes, that last one is a bit of a stretch. Sue me, I was having fun. ;p

Side note, I can totally understand someone having a fear of crowds. There doesn't seem to be anything irrational about it!

Who'da thunk drawing bunnicorns would be ... well, I guess 'easy' ... 

Petrichor is one of my most favoritest smells, so... figuring out how to work that in? Oh, yes, that was happening.

Well. I couldn't figure out how to work Deliciate into this; so, you get this instead.

So, I pulled from a reference for this one. It's probably visible (kudos to anyone who actually tracks down the photo I used).

Couldn't get Gillygaupus into this one, but, hey, I got three for two, on account of two lists having the same prompt for today.

I may have missed an opportunity to abuse my ability to draw the human form and throw a little sci-fi into the blend here, but... well, this was also fun.

Didn't manage to get any gamboling in this one, either; prompts just didn't want to line up.

Holy BALLS, what a ride. So, this is .. again, one of my characters (who's surprised, anyone? No? Didn't think so), doin' what she does.

I could probably have worked 'Imprecation' into this, but .. well, would have been a bit of a sell. 

 

I'm not sure, given a choice, whether I'd do this again with watercolour; while it worked, and I enjoyed the heck out of it, it was also kinda ... time consuming. ^^;

So, who knows. We'll see how next year goes. 

And, 'cause I'm betting some of you are curious, I'mma drop a spoiler here with a photo and rough list of the tools I was using.

 

Spoiler

Arright! First, we have the paper; as I said, that was 140lb cold press; that's a Canson sketchbook. I went through one and a half of them, this year.

Next we have paint; I was using Paul Ruben watercolours. Yes, the cases are regrettably pink. I .. don't care. The paints are good, the cases are nice, and I overall approve. The one with the Girl Genius sticker is non-metallics; the cases being identical .. *sigh* I'm of mixed feelings about the metallics; I like them, but they're one of those things where they're a niche toy. 

Mechanical pencil! This is a Sakura 127, .7. I usually prefer a .5, but.. I don't have one with a decent eraser, so.. meh.

I do have a white plastic eraser, 'cause Staedtler is the Stuff.

Pens ran the board; I have a lot of Sakura Microns, some Pigmas and a bunch of white gel pens for highlighting and what not. I did at least one with Copics and some of my Prismacolour markers, but at that point, I was out of room, and so my Copics didn't get into this picture.

Brushes. Aside from the Royal and Zelnickel 0 that got a lot of my detail work, I was using three out of a set of six Ooku synthetics; they hold water (distilled, in this case), in the handle. Squeeze = BLORT! ... that took some getting used to, but I like them for BLORT!-friendly painting. Less good for detail work, sadly, but that's what the 0 was for. And occasionally the Sakuras.

 

And that, ladies, gents and rainbows of all persuasions, has been Inktober at Thornehaus! I've been enjoying the heck out of everyone else's work, and I hope the feeling's been mutual. ^_^

I hear ya sister!

 

I have never done anything of the sort in the past, for such a long period, same medium (digital drawing on tablet), and with self-imposed deadlines (one a day), . Not doing any serious drawing in years, I had no idea what my skill level was anymore. But comparing my first drawings on Sketchbook Pro (where I knew next to nothing about how to use the app) to the later ones, I surprised myself with the improvements.

 

There's something to this "practice" thing I keep hearing about.

 

BTW, here's the list of words you made me Google all month:

  • Scurryfunge (cleaning in a rush)
  • Ungapatchka (overdone, tacky)
  • Pulchritudinous (beautiful)
  • Kilderkin (half a barrel size)
  • Illaqueate (ensnare)
  • Weltschmerz (world-weary melancholy)
  • Malagrugrous (dismal, gloomy)
  • Aglifft (frightened, alarmed)
  • Quakebuttock (coward)
  • Selcouth (unfamiliar, wondrous)
  • Ochlophobist (one who fears crowds)
  • Petrichor (earthy scent after rain on dry soil)

P.S. It gave autocorrect a seizure, and interestingly enough a new list of "corrected" prompts.

I can't take credit for the word list; that was someone in the Reaper Discord. But I had to look up a bunch of them myself (actually, all of them, just to be sure I wasn't misunderstanding anything. The ones I knew, I mostly knew correctly). 

Petrichor is one of my favorite smells, and I have a vague recollection of being charmed the first time I learned what the scent is called.

 

I hope I'm not the only one hoping they do another such prompt list next year; this one was a lot of fun, and educational to boot!

      Some of us on the Forums participated in an event called Inktober. One of the Prompt Words was Dragon. So for the 12th  of October I did a Dragon. I took Work in Progress pictures, so I thought it might be fun to post them in the WIP section. (Finally getting around to posting them three months on.)
       
      I posted some free advice about using ink markers in the Inktober thread and I followed some of my own advice to draw this. Trying to figure out how to quote that post...but it is not allowing it for unknown reasons. (First save)
       
      Edit:
      There it is ^ I had to save; do a second post; which merged with the first post; and then edit. 
       
      Right then, on with it, following my own advice... 
       
      Step 1
      Grab a mechanical pencil and outline the basic area where the Dragon is going to be. Mostly, this step is to make sure that the drawing doesn't run off the edge of the paper. But, there are a few key details like the eye location... the jaw...
       
      There is no pic for this step. Sorry. It didn’t occur to me to do a step-by-step and the pencil lines were so faint because I used such a hard grade of lead it probably wouldn’t have shown up in the photo.

      About
      Hello everybody,
      We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
      With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
      Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
      Original Art of "Wastelands" example for pledges #5 & #6  The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
      Original Sketch example for pledges #3 & #4  Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
        For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .
