I'm with roler! Just the description of the ingredients make those breakfast bars appealing :d
Prompt: October Mob- Trick Team: Fandom Project Name: Little Groot
I have no idea what I did to make the image so small Maybe it's the way I saved it... Anyway, the "trick" is making the arms so that they can be moved/posed without wire armature I think it's a pretty neat trick, considering I had tried something like this before and it didn't work out.
I'm behind on posting up the monsters for the 30 Day Monster Challenge because my internet is being weird. But I just HAD to share this one because it looks really nice
The theme was "Myth of Your Heritage" and my heritage is quite a motley mix so I had a wide variety of myths and monsters to choose from. I chose draugr. Draugar (singular is draugr or draug) are like ghosts except that they have physical bodies, which makes them more akin to zombies. However, draugar often have superhuman strength and generally retain some semblance of intelligence, unlike zombies who are typically depicted as weak, unless there is a horde, and relatively stupid. For more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draugr and http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ghosts.shtml
See how much nicer my art looks when I have references? The pose was referenced from a stock photo by Marcus Ranum (http://www.ranum.com), particularly this one. The clothing/armor comes from various images of "Viking" armor.
Prompt: October- Haunted House Team:Fandom Project Name: Manananggal In searching for a different vampire for the 30 Monsters Challenge, I found a type that's a bit creepier than some of it's kindred. In the Philippines, the Manananggal is a female vampire who looks like an ordinary woman by day but by night, she splits in two at her torso and the top half flies about drinking the blood of men and pregnant women with her long, proboscis-like tongue . Typically, the lower half is left standing but some accounts say that she sometimes splits while she is in bed leaving her lower half in her bed "sleeping".
I went for a somewhat silly expression, as if she sees the observer and is doing her best to creep them out. Her wing isn't cut off: I ran out of room because I had forgotten about the Manananggal's wings.
Prompt: September - Hide and Seek Team: Fandom Project Name: Rori the Zombie Fairy I joined a 30 Day Monster Challenge over on DeviantArt and the theme for the second day was "Fear into Fantasy". At first I was going to draw the Headless Horseman in drag for a different sort of fantasy! But as a lover of fairies, I decided to draw Rori as a zombie fairy. She fits for Hide and Seek because no one I showed her off to realized she was a zombie fairy until I pointed out the exposed brain/hole in her head. I need to practice drawing brains.
If anyone is wondering, she's holding a bag of pixie dust. And the bandage on her leg is to hide the hole because I drew this without any references and I can't draw muscle tissue without reference.
Cute shirt, cmouse! I applaud you on the ruffles. Though I love them, I hate sewing them
My latest drawing project involves improving my skills for a mini comic involving monsters from movies and myths. Here's some practice work: Dr. Septimus Pretorius, management of the castle-turned-boarding-house
Facial concepts for some of the main cast. Clockwise from the top: Rafe Cross (human form), Rafe Cross (wolfman form), Dr. Pretorius (much improved from the first drawing), Aurora "Rori" Knight, and the Headless Horseman.
The Headless Horseman racing across the countryside on his horse:
Though I'm happy with all these works, considering I've not drawn a lot in the past few years (barring cartoony/chibi art), I know I can improve.
Prompt: October- Hocus Pocus Team:Fandom Project Name: The Headless Horseman Rides "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is one of my favorite stories and the Headless Horseman is loosely based upon a being from Irish myth known as the Dullahan, a type of Unseelie. The biggest, and most obvious difference, is that unlike the Dullahan, who typically carries his/her head, the Headless Horseman doesn't have his and searches for it.
The horse's head is a bit big and the Horseman looks a bit derpy because he's disproportionate. This is why I need the practice Also, since his steed is supposed to be running, he should be leaned forward a bit more so he doesn't fall off.
Prompt: September- Yahtzee Team:Fandom Project Name: Making Faces I haven't drawn much in the past couple years or so. But I recently adopted two characters from someone on DeviantArt and those characters have inspired me to make a mini comic series. The comics are going to involve monsters of various myths and movies living in a castle-turned-apartments (they rent rooms). So, for practice, I drew these five faces. Two of the faces are the same character but different forms.
My handwriting is a bit fuzzy so the characters are, from top right, clockwise: Rafe Cross (human form), Rafe Cross (wolfman form), Dr. Pretorius (yes, that Pretorius; he's the castle's head of management), Aurora "Rori" Knight (zombie girl), and the Headless Horseman (headless headshot!) Clearly, I need more practice but I think these are pretty good, considering I'm out of practice
I'm wanting to make a mini comic series about a castle with rooms rented by various monsters from myths and movies. I decided Dr. Pretorius should be the manager of said establishment. So I drew my own interpretation of him, which I want to improve upon for a hoop.
I need to practice drawing age lines and hands. His visible hand is waayy too small! But I like his nose
