NaNoWriMo: Day Two

One of the things I both love and hate about the first draft is how wordy it is. For NaNoWriMo, it’s a blessing because you’re likely adding a bunch of world-building, character-building fluff you’ll wind up cutting out in draft two. That stuff also helps you get to know your characters and world a little […]

NaNoWriMo: Day One

I didn’t do well with Camp NaNoWriMo, and I haven’t been writing nearly at all these last few months, but it is my hope that one sure-fire way to get the wheels spinning and turning again is to buckle down and hit the 50,000 words in a month trail. I spent several weeks plotting last […]

Flashy Friday: Not a Harvest God

Every day the people in the village brought offerings to the small shrine in hopes of appeasing the god they believed took up residence there. Good favor would mean larger crop yields come harvest, they said. It would mean fewer deaths during the long winters. But Henrietta knew in her soul there was no god at […]

Inktober Day 31: Ripe

I made it all the way through my very first Inktober and didn’t miss a single day. Even on the challenging days when I had no idea what I was going to draw when I sat down with my pens and my pad, I still managed to dive in and create something. It feels really […]

Inktober Day 30: Catch

Man, I am starting to feel a little sad that Inktober is almost over. October has always been my favorite month of the year, and adding art to my daily October routine this month has been such an amazing experience. I feel like I’ve learned so much, and I can’t wait to keep creating art […]

Inktober Day 29: Injured

I had no idea what I was going to do for today’s prompt, but I wanted to do something spacey because space is my jam. As I started thinking about injuries while driving early this morning, I realized Garrus Vakarian was a good candidate, especially after he got rocket-launched in the face in Mass Effect […]

Inktober Day 28: Ride

One of the things I love about art is also one of the things I don’t love about it. Sometimes, no matter how you see something in your mind, it doesn’t always come out that way on the canvas. Occasionally it’s impossible to create what you see, and other times it’s even more amazing than […]

Inktober Day 27: Coat

Jevahn believes the reason I started making so much art in the first place was so I could capture his eminence and glory *insert half-hearted eye roll here*, and though he’s not entirely false in these assumptions, I have a lot of other things on my plate. I’m sure he’d like me to make lots […]

Inktober Day 26: Dark

I think when the Ancient prompt ended, the old gods had already infiltrated my soul because when I started on the “Dark” prompt for today, Cthulhu demanded to be front and center within the darkness. I used a Tombow Mono 05 drawing pen and Tombow dualbrush pens.

Inktober Day 25: Tasty

I love the idea of space food. I love trying to replicate those colors in the kitchen, as well as on the page, so when I saw the Tasty prompt, I was super excited to make something spacey to eat. I give you Space Cakes with Galaxy Berry Syrup and a nice glass of Nebulime […]
