One more day of Inktober!

Can’t believe there’s only one more day of Inktober left! Gonna have to pick a fun one for ‘Friend’ tomorrow. It’s been a quick and crazy month. I feel like I just started the challenge yesterday. Not as long as my 365 Days of Lettering, but still a large project. I love these types of habit based challenges.

Speaking of habit based challenges, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) begins Tuesday! I’m spending Monday gearing up for writing. Will be updating you on the progress. Still on the fence about vlogging the process. If I decide to do so look for an announcement video tomorrow. Updates will be on here and Twitter regardless of vlogging. I’m determined to win this year and have supplementary drawings or animations to post. Very excited!

Gonna go get to bed so I can get some important tasks out of the way tomorrow!

Corn Mazes & Owls

Went to a corn maze today with one of my best friends. T’was aMAZEingly fun to navigate and get lost.

Throwback to my favorite cornfield song.

 

Halloween GIF & Ants

I spent a large portion of today working on a Halloween GIF for School of Motion’s Jack Mo’ Lantern contest.  So many transitions and I really haven’t created much in Photoshop’s timeline since early this year, so, I ended up learning about onion skins and all the timeline features. So many transitions between those shapes. T’was crazy.

Do not research bugs and animals that bite and sting before you go to bed. NOPE. JUST NOPE. You get things like this.

Serval | Big Cats like Boxes Too!

I’m working on a few projects. Been distracted. Till then you’ll have all the Inktober drawings I’ve been creating.

Armadillo

One of those nights where all I want to do is curl into a ball and read. So gonna go do that. Not even going to bother with excuses for not finishing that website tonight. Just me procrastinating.

Opposite Directions & Colorful Shrimp

Today was one of those days where I thought it was going one way and then it just straight up went the other direction. In both good and bad ways. The morning started off with trying to be a productive day but instead I went in circles. Follow that up with what I thought was going to be meeting up for coffee with a new friend and instead turned into a tour of Sphero with a networking moment. My brain is still a bit mushy from the experience. Wasn’t expecting that at all and now I’m just utterly excited.

Of course, now I need to make up for minimal productivity by waking up early and working on projects. And have a long interruption to see Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children with a friend in the middle of the day. Followed up by more work and Mochat at 7 PM. Gonna be an interesting day.

Sloth Inktober

Failed to prioritize my website today and now it’s late so I want to go to bed. Looking like an earlier start tomorrow since I picked cleaning and family celebrations today. Yawning as I type this and trying to keep my eyes open. So here’s my sloth inktober.

Bee Hummingbird & Updates

Pardon, my lateness tonight. Got distracted watching SNL and Bones with the fam.

A quick update since I’m running late tonight. My website update is near done. Ran some errands in the middle of the day so I only got a half day work on it. I have it near done. Just one more page to add and then some proper captions. I have a lot of filler text in there right now, so, will be devoting a portion of tomorrow to writing captions. Def want to get it up before the weekend is over so I can email companies.

NaNoWriMo plotting is coming along. Found a few resources online to work on the plot and character development. If time allows I want to write a short story in the world I’ve created. It’ll help give me a grasp on the location and the narration I want to use. Some sketching will be heading your way too. Concept art is always a huge help in developing stories for me. Excited for November!

I also need to carve some time out to finish animating the last frames to my NaNo Seeking Writer project, as well as my Selfi. Been neglecting those two and just need to do. There’s also a GIF contest due on Friday I want to enter. A big animating week is coming up. I also have a Halloween lettering idea, but I don’t know if I have time to create it. Probably just need to wake up earlier and have more caffeine. Will plan tonight before I sleep so that I don’t get overwhelmed with the projects. Worse case scenario, I leave the Halloween lettering idea till next year, and delay my Selfi project by a week. Gonna aim to do all the things tho.

So hope your weekend is going well and your upcoming plans for the next week are exciting! I’m also really excited for Sunday’s Inktober theme. Been waiting to draw this animal since I saw the prompt! Till then view the smallest bird ink drawing below!

Elephant

Welp. Most of my day got wasted due to the hack. I tried to finish up my website tonight but by the time the internet got properly working for me I had to do other stuff.

Here’s my Inktober drawing for today. I need to sleep before any more typos happen.

Snakes, Weird Al, & Website Coming!

My website is coming along well. If I just put Citrus on for all day tomorrow I’ll be able to finish it for tomorrow. Just need to keep me from getting distracted. I’m attending Creative Mornings in Denver tomorrow, but after that, I will be working on the website till it’s done!

Here’s a fun video to watch and my inktober drawing after that.

Anacondas are a little scary especially after watching those Animal Planet videos of them trying to constrict children. D;
