September Sketchfest

#EMGSketchFest 91 was this weekend. I did 3 prompts and have finished line drawings of 2. How productive was I? Prompts were: Collector of ____ , Harvest Moon, and Witch Queen. I tried using a vintage photo of a real European Noble from Victorian times as inspiration, but it was tricky so we’ll see if I do more work on the Witch Queen. The Collector of Keys and Harvest Moon images are done up to colouring page status. We’ll see if I do add colour to those one day.


August Sketchfest

Took part in Ellen Million’s Sketchfest again. Always fun and inspiring. The Eclipse seemed to be a popular prompt again this month and I got 2 drawings from that, one of which I played with colouring in GIMP, plus a couple more.

Prompts were Eclipse Dragon, My Black Cat, Beautiful Beast, and Total Eclipse.Sketchfest 90 aug 2017

And Ellen featured my Beast on her blog too! thank you Ellen 🙂

July Sketchfest

This month’s Sketchfest was July 21,22, and 23rd, and I was struggling with this one. The prompts I worked on were Abyssal Mermaid, Butterfly Dreams, and Solar Eclipse.

I was most happy with Butterfly dreams, but I would have to say most inspired by Solar Eclipse because I decided to redo it a couple of times over the last couple of days.

I did the extra Sun/Moon images on water colour paper, so perhaps one day I will work on coloured versions.

June Sketchfest

I missed posting my June Sketchfest contributions. I have been working on a month long project with the internet art challenges #juneicorn and #junefae, which I hope to post about when I get that organized, but it distracted me from posting my Sketchfest 88 contributions. Because I was working on Unicorns and Faeries most of my prompts reflect that, as I planned to used them for the challenges too. The prompts I chose were Dragoonicorn, Being of Light, Winged Unicorn, Litha and A snow-unicorn stomp. They are in varying stages of completeness.

This weekend was another of Ellen Million’s Sketchfest. I very much enjoy participating how and when I can. I haven’t posted from the last couple I participated in so I figured I would combine the last 3 events into one post. So here goes:

November 2016

The prompts were: Willow Song and Wood Witch


December 2016

The prompts were: Creepy Mermaiden and Winter Fairy Queen


January 2017

The prompts were: King Thrushbeard and Winter Frost Dragon


What does the Fox say?

Mom and I were talking about animal noises. Particularly donkeys that were not fed, and how sweetly they sing. I found out she didn’t know about “What does the Fox Say?” so I showed her the video, then it was stuck in my head. I do like foxes. They are very pretty animals. Here are some of my images:
