Inktober 2020 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 1: Fish – Werewolf

Day 1 Fish – Werewolf

Day 1:  Fish – Werewolf
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober 
Inktober:  Fish
MabsDrawlloweenClub:  Werewolf

It’s that creative time again welcome October!
This month brings some of the most loved drawing challenges Inktober  begins today!
This is my 5th year participating and once again I decided to create my drawings inspired by the official prompts of my  two favorite challenges (read my previous post here)
The challenge Mabsdrawlloweenclub is usually inspired by dark folklore and legend’s characters it has an Halloween theme.  Inktober prompts can be anything usually common things. I find it  interesting to see what I am able to create also when sometimes the two prompts of the day aren’t easy to combine! Doing an Hybrid challenge will refine creativity and skills!

For today drawing I had to combine Werewolf and Fish I guess I did it nicely and I am happy with my painting! I am not so much inspired by dark creepy or scary characters so I try to make them look less scary and more nice :-). I have created my Werewolf in a lovely female form taking a bath at the full moon light enjoying the company of a lovely Koi Fish.

Hello friends I can’t believe we are almost at the end of October and of Inktober art challenge only four more days to go!
Today drawing is inspired by the prompts “Stranger Things” a very popular American TV-14 series for young adult on Netflix. If you are familiar with the 3 Seasons of this fiction, science, horror series, then you sure recognized my two very loved main characters. Eleven the girl with the special telepathic and psychokinetic powers and ability and Mike the boy that found her when she escaped from an experimental scientific facility. I am not going to say more… as I don’t want to spoil the story if you intend to watch it! I have to say, that I enjoyed to watch all the 3 seasons with my daughter very much it is a very interesting , fun and dramatic series and very captivating! Now waiting for the 4th Season hopefully in 2020.

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26:  Dark – Huli Jing
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Dark
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Huli Jing

Today prompt “Huli Jing” is inspired by the Chinese Mythology (Chinese狐狸精; literally: ‘fox spirit’) or jiuweihu (Chinese: 九尾狐; literally: ‘nine-tailed fox’) are Chinese mythological creatures who can be either good or bad spirits. During the Han dynasty, the development of ideas about interspecies transformation had taken place in Chinese culture. The idea that non-human creatures with advancing age could assume human form. As these traditions developed, the fox’s capacity for transformation was shaped. (Source WikipediA)

I hope you like my drawing and vision of the Huli Jing representing the 9 tales Fox Spirit, the black minimalistic background is for combine the prompt Dark. I think it suits greatly with my composition.
