Well, it’s day 16 in this wonderful month of October. So far, I’ve been hitting all the goals of my Daily Creature Feature by getting a drawing finished each day. I’ve debuted each one to my friends on Facebook first, followed up by publishing it on my site, Instagram and finally tweeting it. If only I could eliminate that part I’d probably have an extra half hour or so to work! It’s no big deal though. The biggest challenge so far has been that I start with a clean slate each day. Unlike the last few times that I’ve
attempted done this, I haven’t planned any of the creatures ahead of time. This means each one is hatched/birthed/conjured up the day I publish it. It’s been beneficial because so far it’s allowed me to be spontaneous and forces me to manage my time (and be a bit more creative). I’ve created a pretty smooth workflow, starting with a little sketch and ending with the final touched up image. The hard part has been making sure it meets my subjective set of standards of construction.
Enough about process – let me show you today’s creature! While I was working on it, I was thinking ‘zombie like creature’, but then one of my friends mentioned it looked more alien. So, I’ll let you decide. Does it look more like the lower half of:
- Zombie legs
- Mittens without pants and without any pink makeup on his arms and hands
- Alien Mittens walking back to his pod
- All of the above
I look forward to revealing creature number 17 to you tomorrow!
