Finished up this little guy for ArtOrder's Tiny Dragons call for art. Tried hard to keep the value structure strong and intact this time around. 8x8", created with my usual mess of colored pencil, ink, watercolor, and a little bit of gouache on hotpress watercolor paper
And WOW HELLO, loads of new folks here since the last time I checked in! I'm Katie/Rowkey, hopping around the US and trying to find my place in the illustration world- currently doing a mixed bag of freelance work and convention dealing. Around here you'll probably see me yelling about mushrooms, cemeteries, orcs, and fountain pen inks. 👍
I'll be travelling quite a bit for the first half of October, so we'll see how long I can keep up the pace. Perhaps mid-month I'll use ballpoint instead of liquid ink, something like that.
Speaking of #inktober! Made myself a spreadsheet-based prompt generator and figured I’d share. :D
Go to File>Make a Copy to use the (not quite functional) randomizer and customize the lists, if you like. The list of animals is biased toward smaller critters and birds, but I tried to cover as much ground as possible. Have fun!
AGhhh wow, hello all! One day I'll crack the code of how to be busy -and- maintain an internet presence, promise. I'm trying to compile some info about the art fair I took part in and get some info about that up over the next few days (...I made panels too big for my moderately-sized car, for one thing). Inktober starts tomorrow. Wowwow
Should mention I tend to use Evernote as more of a filing cabinet than for true note-taking. Eg, 'this particular business receipt with these tags go here' and 'this wikipedia entry I ganked for no reason goes here'
What kind of digital note-taking systems do you all use nowadays? I've been using a combo of Keep and Evernote for a bit, but I keep hearing whispers of OneNote being 'the best'.
Next step: trip to the hardware store to gather supplies for PANEL CONSTRUCTION! If the process goes well I'll share some photos with everyone. :'D
Things are kicking into high gear for my first pop-up/craft-fair/art-show...thing in a few weeks. The amount of money I've sunk into this is, frankly, horrifying, but the foundation for future shows is HERE now. 😬
dead on the couch (again) with uterus/back pain, but it's 65 degrees and calm rain outside: can't ask for more than that!
Got quite a lot done today! Now debating tipsy-playing either Caves of Qud or Rimworld. ooo
Did a quick census of the dubia roaches and, including mine and the gecko's, there are approximately 518 legs in my room right now. 👢👢👢
