'Le Skellete Inn'. Made from cardboard, foam, some paper too!
I'll post some non 3/4 pictures too, because I can. But that photo up top is the entry.
Well, I didnt quite finish mine but I'm happy with it! This contest pushed me to try something I've been meaning to for quite a while (build little sets from scratch that are set in a dnd fantasy world.)
And finally entering a contest now that I'm a member
Here's my Lizardman on an adventure!
Video of the little reading nook set...
Really glad we've moved on from the yeti stuff, I just could not get into that. So weird, id usually have no qualms about drawing a yeti, but attach it to a contest/assignment and I was like 'blecch!'
I love this new contest topic though, as it is right up my alley!
I have been sculpting little gross fantasy creature characters during the pandemic,I even made a little forest traveller last month. I'm going to continue this style for this contest.
I have these already
The latest little guy even has a backpack for his travels!
Could/should I just use the backpack guy and sculpt him in a sitting pose as well? Then draw him running?
Is it 'cheating' a bit to use something/part of something you've already made?
I have ideas for a totally new lil fantasy guy, and could just do that. But, sculpting takes a long time and making multiples of one character in different poses would be a lot. Not impossible, or even that much of a stretch (considering I sculpt something every week and a half or so.) And I love this little backpack man!
I dunno. Thoughts? Cheating a bit? Do a new character? Mix drawn versions of him with sculpted?
I think I'm done with this guy now. Not sure how to get it to fit the critique arena format or whatever. I'll figure it out
For this one I tried to focus on the stuffed animal, mischief, and animation aspects. I could see this design doing all that.
Ill do another!
Jumping back into contests this month with this fun prompt! My first thought was Albert the Aardvark, because of the alliterative device, but also because I thought of this Aardvark wearing glasses....
Never did it occur to me that it might be because of Arthur the Aardvark. I had forgotten he was an aardvark??
Oh well. Arthur didnt look anything like an aardvark. He looked like a bear.
Maybe I'll change my animal, but here's what I sketched this morning.
@Kim-Hunter sounds like a typical goat migration season error.
I love children's stories that are dark and push boundaries. That isn't what's going on here, though. Maybe if there were some comedic elements added?
As it stands, it's just... odd.
If you're comfortable making this funny, I'd go for that!
Some good drawings here!
Lee's point about seeing people 'gather around your art' is a good one. He's made it before in other episodes. I think about it, as well as when Jake (I think) said you become an artist three times, or at three levels.
I'm paraphrasing, but it was something like that.
