I gotta get to work on mine... This year, I cobbled together a list of prompts from some random generators.
Thank you! The cats aren't OCS, but I guess you could say the mask kid is? The cat's were directly inspired by Ursula Leguin's "Catwings" books. I haven't read them since I was a kid, but they made an impression. I love your work! What did you use to make it? My scanner had a bit of a hiccup yesterday, but I'm gonna see if I can get it working today... If not I'll take photos of 3,4,5 today.Awww, that winged cat in that day 2 drawing is so cute! I'm a sucker for winged fantasy animals. eue You designed it for this drawing or is this an older OC?
But no one else has posted here? Wow! I would have expected several pages worth of drawings by now. D: Well, I could join in the fun too and hopefully more will follow! :> *Beckons at all the other artists here*
I don't wanna spam everything I've done thus far so I'll just post today's drawing; a creepy monster mermaid with loopy eyes and LOTS of glowy baubles. I'm using the "official" list of themes myself!
Day 4: Underwater
Ohh, I see! They look like they easily could be made into OCs. :> And oh! The mask kid look neat too! If I didn't know better, I could easily have thought that was the cover of a small comic.
And oh, sorry! Yes, I'm doing Inktober digitally because I don't have space to store 31 traditional drawings/paintings in my room. xD (Yay for living with your parents and only having your little room for everything you own.)
But hopefully you'll be able to scan yours! I just got into working my day 5 drawing myself. :>
Oooh! you got them scanned! (Eeee! Cats!) Sweet! Oh gosh, that first one is so cool! Loving how the clown thing fades into the shadows. Poor mask boy! And the dragon one is fun too. I took a moment to realize it was sideways and for a moment thought it was a dragon head coming out of another, big-nosed dragon's mouth and was super confused. xD I like how his face looks!
And oh yes! I use PaintTool Sai. It's not free but it's pretty cheap. I've been using the 1.2 version for several years! It's especially good for lineart and painting~. (2.0 is also coming out eventually and from what I've seen from beta testing it, it looks promising too!) Highly recommended!
I tried Krita once but I found its tool system a bit too complex to my liking and Photoshop is... I hate monthly payments. xD Medibang is nice too, though! I like to use it for creating text, smoke effects and random textures. :> OH! And the symmetry brushes are gorgeous!
What do you guys use to ink? Because I don't think what I have will produce that sort of result. All I have are some uniball pens
Aw, thanks a lot! I like your entries a lot too. The wiggle effect is simple - I just redraw the thing 3-4 times using original drawing as an overlay, then save all the frames separately and combine it into a GIF .u. It's rather tedious, but looks much better than various automatic plugins (which mostly turn the whole thing into a mess).Very nice! How did you make them all wiggly? That's a really cool effect!
Hey, thank you too! The original owner of the char is jenisgoth from DA (1, 2, 3) - kinda fell in love with the char (I'm a huge fan of simplistic-yet-effective character designs), so I decided to draw it first and foremost.
