Weekend Sketches #17 - Halloweenies 2022
October 30, 2022
My goodness! I've definitely been busy this October! I think it was all the time I spent outside and with friends this summer. Touching grass recharged my batteries and I feel ready to spend my autumn and winter drawing inside.
I did another drawing challenge this month! I was all revved up from Swordtember that I gave Killswitchkatie's Zine-o-Ween prompt list a shot. I did only 13 illustrations in black and white. I made a bit of a small narrative out of them featuring my OCs from Earthshine in an AU where they are creatures of the night. There's even a couple of illustrations featuring Sol's moms. These illustrations are a bit spicier than what I drew for Swordtember since my gals are actually interacting with each other.
Just like with Swordtember I compiled all these illustrations into a zine, which I shared with close friends as well as put up on my Patreon. I'll probably get this one printed out as a limited run for local and small zine fests as well, but I don't have any plans to make the PDF available to non-patrons. I'm also only sharing the first 6 illustrations from this challenge here.
Just like with Swordtember I had a lot of fun with these and I look forward to doing more challenges in the future. I think this method where I keep what I make to an insular group, and then post only bits and pieces publicly is the way to go for me. It's a nice thing to find out your favourite way of having fun.
Have a Happy Halloween, and thanks for stopping by!
