So, this year I decided that I was going to do the Drawlloween challenge.
This meant drawing a different (sort-of) Hallowe'en related image each day for the whole of October.
My initial thought was that I should do an ensemble piece and have everything on one big picture ... and that's exactly what I've done.
Put in the finishing touches today and WOW what a weight off. The urge to steam ahead has been almost overwhelming. But no. I practiced restraint.
Though I did feel that whoever put the list together clearly ran out of ideas halfway through and then jumbled up the barrel-scraping ones with the rest.
Kinda disappointed with the last one too. I've never associated Dragons with Hallowe'en.
The list was:
- Goblin (a lot of folks aren't going to be getting their Pizza's).
- Vampire (no apologies will be given).
- Haunted House.
- Eyeball (added to the Zombie the next day cause this was kinda a dumb one)
- Alien (couldn't decide so added the Invader Zim Trick 'r Treater).
- Raven (I hope I get bonus points for my gothic reference).
- Moon (I really thought this should specify 'Full Moon').
- Frankenstein (which everyone should know is the DOCTOR not the Monster).
- Bat (I've added an assortment).
- Amulet (I struggled with this).
- Grave (after my trip to the Glasgow Necropolis, I didn't feel that 1 grave was enough ...).
- Demon (on the gatepost wearing the bring-to-life amulet. Blarg. Like I said, I struggled).
- Mask (I make no apologies).
- Creature from the Black Lagoon.
- 8-Bit Zombie (I don't know why this one is in here. I'm so sick of the current zombie fetish in culture at the moment. Check the noticeboard).
- Gore (see street accident).
- Skeleton (added to the Skull from day 20. It wasn't until someone pointed it out that I realised I'd subconsciously lynched Fender).
- Rat (see drain).
- Black Cat.
- Spider (I'm arachnophobic, so I compromised with a Spiderman Trick 'r Treater)
- Dragon (Really have no idea why this is on a Hallowe'en themed list. So I made it the second brought-to-life gargoyle from the gate post).
