1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 26 - Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Smeddley on: November 06, 2017 11:40:09 AM
Had a few activities this weekend, one of which was a gem and mineral show. It was fun to go look, and we did find one or two things, but a lot of it was so very expensive ($812 for one strand of beads?!).

Research Project Name: Drawlloween ATCs
Team: Textbok
Bonus Points: Community
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453612.0
Brief Description: A month ago I switched to this research project and I ACTUALLY DID IT!  I'll be honest, if it wasn't for the fact that it was for the Nerd Games, I probably wouldn't have, because there were so many times I just wanted to give up.  Descriptions and my reactions to the cards are in the project link.
Project Picture:

Prompt:  October Battle Royale - Mashup
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Merph/Dr Who ATC
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: A mashup of my monster, Merph, and Dr Who!  So Merph doesn't have quite the fandom (or any fandom, really, but don't tell him!), but it's still a merging of the two!
Project Picture:

I have more to upload but they will have to wait, my arms are bothering me today and it was too much typing on the Drawlloween post.  Good luck to everyone who has last-minute submissions they want to get in!

3  Drawlloween - ATC style in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Smeddley on: October 31, 2017 05:09:55 PM
I decided to attempt Drawlloween once more (I failed a few years back) and for added incentive made it a Nerd Games Research Project (see more about that here on Craftster!).  Which means I did finish it, but I can't say I love all (or many) of them.  So here we go, 31 ATC cards for the month of October!

Day 1 - Return from the Dead.  I didn't love this one when I first did it, but it grew on me.

Day 2 - Summon Day.  My husband's favorite, an unfortunately early high point to the challenge.

Day 4 - Pumpkin Wicked this Way Comes.  I really liked this one, though it was a change from the cutesy/chibi style.  (Whoops, out of order on the collage)

Day 3 - Tombsday.  I loved the torches and the themes, but it was pointed out she has noodle arms and now I can't unsee it.

Day 5 - Full Moon Follies.  Words cannot describe how much I hate this one.

Day 6 - Folklore Friday.  Cute, but just okay.

Day 7 - Cobweb Crawlers.  A remake of an early drawing I did, I still love it.

Day 8 - Deep Sea Denizens.  A remake of probably my favorite drawing of mine ever.

Day 9 - Fanged Fiends.  Not as bad as the werewolf, but cringe-worthy.

Day 10 - Martian Mayhem.  I think it's a passable drawing or Marvin, but it's just a copy so...

Day 11 - Swamp Citizens.  See day 10, replace "Marvin" with "Kermit".

Day 12 - Ah! Reel Monsters.  I legit love the monster in this one, but the background is blergh.

Day 13 - Friday the 13th.  I'm fair proud of this one, to be honest.

Day 14 - Owl Be Back.  Again, a less cartoony style but I really like it.

Day 15 - Cornfield Capers.  Ugh.  Just UGH.

Day 16 - Carnival Carnage.  I think this one had potential, but I was tired and kinda punted.

Day 17 - Toadsday.  Cute, but nothing that's not ninety million clipart drawings.

Day 18 - Crypt Creeps.  This might take some explaining, it's from a song my mom sang me when I was young:
"Did you ever think when a hearse went by
That you may be the next to die
They cover you up in a bloody sheet
And bury you under, seven feet deep
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The ants play pinochle on your snout
Your stomach turns in to a slimy green
And your guts pop out, like whipping cream."
...that rather explains a lot about me, I think....

Day 19 - Nightmare Nomads.  The Star Trek reference was my hubby's idea, and he says I did a good job, so I'm okay with it.

Day 20 - Dr Jekyll & Mr Friday.  I went with the classic and was cursing the tininess of the ATC, there was too much detail I really couldn't do.

Day 21 - Cadaverous Cowboys. Hate it.

Day 22 - Ghast Christmas.  Eh.  I'm really starting to get burnt out at this point.

Day 23 - Sewer Settlers.  I wish I'd spent more time on him because I like the idea, but the execution is lacking.

Day 24 - Aw, Hex.  Meh.

Day 25 - Do as I Say, not as I Voodoo.  I kinda adore this one.

Day 26 - I know a Sarcophoguy.  LOVE the mummy.  Think I messed up the torches.

Day 27 - Franken Friday.  Eh.  Just okay.

Day 28 - Ghouls rush in.  Just another piece of clipart, really.

Day 29 - Sunday Bloody Sunday.  I like the idea, and the message, if not so much the drawing.

Day 30 - Cauldron Crones.  I seriously mailed this one in, big time.  Hate it.


Day 31 - Trick or Treat.  AND I'M DONE!!!  I didn't even care what this one looked like, I was sooooo happy to be done with it.

And now on to November and NaNoWriMo.  Or not, if I'm smart.  You'd think I'd have learned...

Those Halloween gnomes are awesome! Can't wait to see her costume, that fabric looks...  intriguing! Amelia will be jealous, all she got was a bunch of rags...

(But she fit in perfectly with the rest of us zombies!)

Amelia is here, and already kitted out to play nurse (and hopefully not catch my cold!). I'm afraid her first week will be quite dull and possibly just full of tissues, but hopefully this won't stick around that long...

Thank you so much to Averia for the gorgeous (and I do mean gorgeous) yarn bowl! Seriously, I know the picture didn't do it justice, my house is dark and it was too late when I got home yesterday, and today it's super-dark and stormy. Sad But trust me, such rich, pretty wood!

Okay, I'm going to put my landscape wall RP on hiatus, between my problem with my arms and my bulging disk, I need to get into better shape before I tackle that.  I did the surveying, so it WILL get done at some point, but probably not until spring.

Research Project Name: Drawlloween ATCs
Team: Textbook
Brief Description: Drawlloween is a month-long art challenge.  Every day you make a drawing that fits the prompt.  I plan on doing them all ATC size, so at the end of the month I will have 31 ATCs (hopefully!).  Each ATC takes a bit over an hour, and I do plan on working ahead, as well as falling behind and having to catch up!
