For Snow, I had the idea of drawing a female Cossack trudging through the snow. Big hat and all. It’s not *too* far off from drawing my Notikans, so this came quite naturally.
This was actually a bit tricky to come up with an idea, but I was drawing wayc’s story concepts at the time; I got the brilliant idea to show the pattern of Ki’voosh’s dress for the prompt.
So here it is! A lot of people really liked the texture, and it probably would look interesting if it got printed in real life, admittedly.
For Swing, the first thing that came to mind was an old playset that we had when I was little. It was a hand-me-down, and had two plastic swings on small-grade chain that one could sit on. I don’t quite remember the exact design, but what I depicted was the best I remembered it. Except for a homemade swing a few years after, we never really had any more such things afterwards.
For Frail, the first thing that came to mind was the baby cowbird I raised in 2008. The thing was real small and weak, and I became quite attached to it as it grew. It felt odd because at the time the pets we had never really wanted to be around me, and this hatchling would stay close and always be looking at me. So I think it the theme.
This wasn’t too hard for me to come up with the concept for, and will be one of the ones I’ll go ahead and color. But this little pot full of mushrooms and a little lamp was the idea I had for the enchanted prompt.
I think this is the first time I drew any sort of dog in awhile, and it actually came out properly. Drawing from observation does wonders.
Much fluff, very husky. Wow.
For today’s prompt, this video is what immediately prompted me to do this. I completely related to one-armed robots welding on an assembly line, and while it was pretty minimalistic, visualized said scene. Makes me wonder about when the remastered Halo would come out. Hmm…
This was one of my most favorite out of the entire Inktober prompts this year, Freeze! This was very easy to come up a concept with, and this was pretty much the pose I had in my head when I saw the name. One of my online buddies thought that a “buddy cop” comic or story in this style would be fitting; maybe I might pursue that down the line.
“Crybaby is away!”
When Bait was the prompt, all that came to mind was that famous scene in Firefly where Malcolm dumped the decoy beacon to fool the pursuing military to follow. This is my own version of a decoy that a privateer might use in my settings, a bit more rough and run-down instead of sleek military tech.
Apparently a lot of people liked my Nora character from the last round of Inktober, so I figured I’d feature her again! Here she is just soaking up the night sky, with not a single thing on her mind. Sometimes people appreciate that kind of calm.
And while I went this direction, everyone in my circles seemed to draw mindless monsters or hollow creatures. Oops?
