The work on Gormenghast continues! My gosh this project is taking a long time. Then again, I do keep getting sidetracked making other things, so it’s not all that surprising really. At any rate, I finished the location pieces I wanted to make, and here they are.
Now that these are done I’m taking a small break from Gormenghast stuff to work on another quick project, and then I’ve got two more sections of this project I want to complete before I call it done. I’m glad to take a break, but I’m excited to get back to it in a week or so, and maybe in a month be finally done with it, hah!
So this year I have set myself the challenge of doing a themed set of daily doodles each month. January was my Secret Project month (and I’ll be honest, I only managed about a week and a half’s worth of doodles). February, though, had the theme of Monster Girls, and I did the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge. Which was interesting, given that February doesn’t even have 30 days in it, but oh well! The challenge was to not spend hours and hours on each daily work, but to limit it to between 5 and 20 minutes per drawing. I wanted something low-pressure and stress-relieving to do, but that was also at least a little bit creatively challenging.
The Monster Girl Challenge has been done by lots of people, many of them better than me, but it was super fun to do. So here are the 30 doodles that I did in the month of February:
Monster Girls 1-13
Monster Girls 13-24
Monster Girls 25-29
Celebrate Monster Girls!
I’m pretty pleased that I managed to do the entire month, really! And it’s got me super psyched for the next month. March’s theme is ROBOTS, so if you’re following my sketchblog (which is about as messy as my sketchbooks), you will already have seen the start of that nonsense. If you’re not (and why wouldn’t you, it’s a hilarious delight), then head over there to check out the ridiculous ‘bots I’ve already made, and follow to see more silly and impractical robots over the rest of the month. For the month I actually have a list of prompts that I wrote, so if anyone wants to join in this hilarious quest of drawing silly things, then shoot me a message and I’ll share the prompt list with you.
