Oh hey look, missed a bunch of days again. But, Halloween drawings!
Well, sort of. We have Anubis — an oddly benevolent-looking, half-finished Anubis whose ears were too long for the page, that is:
An overprotective mama bear (my instructor happened to walk past as I was finishing this and said, “Scary!” — fortunately I had already correctly diagrammed the sentences we were all supposed to be working on at the time)
A lizard who’s just a little grumpy, as lizards often seem to be:
And finally a gargoyle.
If you’ve gotten into the rhythm of things (oh man, inadvertently made a bad pun there), you’ll have guessed that this guy has something to do with a song of some kind. You’re right! I’ve been listening to my Halloween music all week, and while Anubis was just sort of a general result of having that on in the background, ol’ Gargoyle comes from a specific tune. Twin Skeleton’s Hotel (yeah, the apostrophe is supposed to be in there, I checked twice), which has nothing to do with gargoyles (arguably even less than Emperor’s New Clothes, which I drew a cat for). Sadly, I cannot help how my brain works. Even when my brain says “Okay, yes, you have this picture all scanned in, but now that you’re seeing it up close wouldn’t it be better if you raised that lower left lid a smidge and darkened the brows and made a little more contrast over here…?” Even if I go, SHUT UP BRAIN, THESE AREN’T SUPPOSED TO BE THAT LABOR-INTENSIVE AND GARGOYLES DO NOT INHERENTLY LOOK LIKE FALLOUT BOY IN THE FIRST PLACE SO WHAT IS EVEN YOUR DEAL.
See why it takes me so long to post these?
Well, only a few days left and then it’s time for another NaNoWriMo. Now that should be interesting!
