Halloween Challenge #31

And that was that.  Wish I could have managed to have done it one per day as planned, but oh well.  I'm actually quite happy with alot of the pieces, mostly the ones with a nice sense of shape and design or the ones where I got a nice little chalk texture thing.

Not sure whether I will make one of these again, but we'll see.  For now I'm busy enough doing work at school, so stay tuned for that!

Halloween Challenge #30

Just one more!

Halloween Challenge #29

That's his nose by the way.

Halloween Challenge #28

Running out of time, so the last ones will be done in this kind of style in order to meet the challenge.

Halloween Challenge #27

Can't believe it took this long to make one featuring a ghost!

Halloween Challenge #26

I'm not quite sure what I was thinking of when I drew this.

Halloween Challenge #25

Must be very large pipes in this house.

Halloween Challenge #24

Some weird pig-human hybrid creature.

Halloween Challenge #23

I love soup.

Halloween Challenge #22

Must have been a chest filled with jam.

Halloween Challenge #21

I actually kind of like how this one turned out.

Halloween Challenge #20

I'm not quite sure what happened here.

Probably just looking for the mouse.

Halloween Challenge #17

When you're sleeping...

Halloween Challenge #16

Never quite got why some people are afraid of clowns.

Halloween Challenge #15

I wouldn't open that door.

Halloween Challenge #14

A more ominous one than scary.

Halloween Challenge #13

Another traditionally made one, all in ink.

Halloween Challenge #12

Long hiatus due to trip to Germany and then hanging out with a friend for a week, but will now catch up with some that I drew during the drought.

Halloween Challenge #11

A bit more of a conventional horror concept, as in it's nothing supernatural or particularly rare, but plenty of people are scared of them (including me, depending on what type it is and whether I have something to kill it with).

Halloween Challenge #8

And now I'm up to date.  Came to thinking about less super natural monsters are technically scarier since they actually exist, and that got me thinking about jaws, and that got me to this.

Halloween Challenge #7

A make up drawing, trying to catch up to the days of making these.

Today a fish man of sorts from the sewers, inspired by the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Generic Walk Cycle

This was a five day long assignment, being taught the mechanics of a walk in great detail.  One is surprised to learn how much happens in a generic and even lazy walk of sorts.  The motion of the arms. the distance a foot rises above the ground, the movement of hips and shoulders.  We move much more than I would ever think necessary.

Halloween Challenge #6

Missed yesterday and technically the day before as well at the time of posting this.  I'll get back on schedule as soon as possible, so there will be 31 pictures all in all at the end of the month.

This is a zombie prostitute.  I got the idea from this fantastic song:

Halloween Challenge #4

Werewolf today, though more wolf than were.  I personally like the red eyes, but overall it might be a little too dark.

Halloween Challenge #3

Frankenstein's monster today, in a variant of the classic Universal Studios' version, possibly the most well known rendition of the creature.

Halloween Challenge #2

Here is today's Halloween Challenge.  I figured I'd start of with the classic monsters, such as vampires and werewolves, or today's subject, mummies.

Halloween Challenge #1

Thought I'd do something similar to what I did last December and make one finished illustration per day throughout the month.  This being October I figured horror, terror and monsters made for great themes.

Day number one features a blue vampire of sorts.  Let's see what the rest of the month will provide!


This was a weeklong assignment, so I figured I would show the steps up to the final animation.

Part of the assignment was to create a backstory and personality for the character in order to give a more unique and specific performance.

In my case the character is a selfish king who it has come to his attention someone close to him will attempt to assassinate him. Worried for his life he sees a servant who is a dead ringer for himself, so he orders him to switch places with him temporarily. His plan is to catch the assassin in the act, not caring for the well being of the servant, thus not telling him of the murder plot. The scene in the animation takes place just after they have switched clothes, and the servant now king orders him to bow before him, his first taste of power. The real king immediately refuses, but notices some people walking into the throne room and forces himself to bow in order to not blow his cover.
