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...

Well, I love them. In addition to the ones I mentioned in the Games, I'm particularly fond of the monster doing its best to terrorize. Adorable! I haven't thought of that song that inspired Day 18 in years. A classic. I really like day 24. Today's is cute, too!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Now that is an amazing collection of ATCs! Days 7 and 27 are faves but they are all fangtastic. Congrats on the accomplishment!
