Inktober 2019 - Day 8 - FRAIL

in art •  3 months ago 

And............... it's November now. Are you all ready for the final two months of 2019? :O It's been a crazy year, hasn't it? Feels like time flies by so fast > __ <??!

To everyone who participated in #inktober this year, kudos to you :D Even if you didn't manage to finish the entire 31 for 31 streak, you still took a part in a great event! :D And to those who did BEAT it..... CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE A GREAT WARRIOR. WHO DOESNT AFRAID OF ANYTHING!!! \o/

This post will be my ... uh, eighth piece for #inktober, so I belong to the first category not the GREAT WARRIOR category XD;;;;

As I have mentioned in the previous post, November is an annual trial-by-fire for writers, with the event known as #NaNoWriMo... I didn't see anyone commenting in my last post that they were going to participate, but I actually found two mad-as-a-hatter Steemians who seem to be taking part this year.... @kaelci and @vincentnijman !!! To you both, I say, BEST OF LUCK and I will be cheering you both on throughout the month :D :D :D

Inktober 2019

As for #inktober 2019 - we're now all done! All WRAPPED UP! Thank you to both OCD and CreativeCoin for hosting the contest and the curation efforts for #inktober month!

Check out the winners from the previous days in these posts:

Final batch of winners will be released shortly :D Thanks to all that jumped in, and specially thanks to those that signal boost Steemit's visibility through your social media websites :D YOU ROCK~

Okay, enough spoder blarghing. Here's spoder arting~

Day 8 - FRAIL

This is a sort of continuation from my previous post, with the ENCHANTED heart, where Gerda was creating a permafrost heart with her icy powers... For FRAIL, I present the heat of Kai's powers, as nothing can withstand true warmth !!!

kai is totes looking like super saiya chibi now, what with the fire effect going and the hair and errything lol

These two have been taking me on a ride but just as I thought I'd stuck with them for a while, I find my muse leading me away from them so I think this is the last time we'll see Gerda and Kai for now. And on that note, 8 is the final count for my #inktober in 2019 hahahah... that's like 23 short from 31 but I had a lot of fun and the event brought me to the creation of my two new OCs, so I'm all good and happies :D :D :D

And here is a shot of the piece during its WIP stage:

I did it with black ballpoint pen on standard printing paper :) !

Okay, that's it from me for now... I still can't believe we're in November already, I hope to see a lot of SteemFest contents in the coming days as I can't actually be there so I'll be reading and living through all of you who are attending :D

I believe the OCD+CreativeCoin awesome curation groups will be doing something exciting in this space with regards to STEEMFEST contents, so keep you eyes peeled for a post announcement from the @OCD account :)

See you in the next post, friends o/

That chibi super saiyan pose is so cute and befits Kai really well. Aaah he looks like a good and fun big brother, even if you don't tell us more of their stories, I bet he and Gerda have so many exciting adventures together.

Good job on your Inktober pieces! I had fun looking at them in sequence, it feels quite similar to reading an illustrative short stories.

hahahah comicking is too much work for me

maybe one day if steem goes to the moon, i can hire other people to work for me, i will XD

Thank you so much for the shout out :>)

Glad I somewhat randomly stumbled upon your mention ( I don't receive noticifactions )

Good for you that you call it quits after 8 entries, instead of feeling like you need to do all 31.

I don't plan to do the same with #NaNoWriMo though. I'm gonna do my utmost best to make it. So far so good. Today was a very productive day too. So much, in fact, that I decided to not blog about it. Will probably do so tomorrow.

Thanks again for your kindness and continuing support.

Um abraço,


:D you are a brave soul! GOOD LUCK WITH #NANOWRIMO :D :D :D

I'll cheer you on throughout November, Vincent \o/

Ohhh that great that you continue with the Inktober, I this year only arrived until the 15th :c

I think this will be my last one for #inktober 2019 aaaaah

15th is great! I only got to 8 hahah~

Thanks Max :D

So happy to stop by and see you're still posting stuff on here! I love the characters you made for Inktober.

I totally forgot about Nanowrimo. I've done it twice before and ended up with two impressive, 50,000 word...stubs. Think I'll forego this year as the Fall is already spiraling out of control and I don't need another thing to feel guilty about. But sometimes I do miss those long typing sessions...

Hey! It's been a while since I saw/chatted with you~ Hope you are well? And Donna? <3

Aaah, you did NaNoWriMo twice! That's amazing :D Well done! I havent written anything at all this year to be honest, and like you, I do miss those long typing sessions, from time to time :>

Nice to see you drop by, Winston <3

Yeah, it's been a while. Finished nano in 2003 and 2005 I think. Then in 2007 I actually finished one (90,000 words) but did it over several months at about 1000 words a day. Now, as for editing/submitting/publishing...?

Donna is doing well. Hopefully things will settle down for winter and we can do some creative work again.

Good to see you too. How is Scrawly?

Oh wow, I was just commenting at this post when I read this convo! XD

I am doing well, thanks very much for asking! Usually I get sick at the change of weathers, but so far so good. You and Donna are always so sweet and thoughtful :D.

Glad to hear it! Stay healthy and keep drawing!

This looks great @veryspider I love the bold outlines, it separates it from the background and gives it an icon sort of feel.

hoy, jer! where you been :O

it's been hot week last week and this week cold and next week it will be warm again in melbourne like rollercoaster i hope you are keeping well maaaaaate~

I've been working a second job and still trying to get back into the groove of things. Yes I am not liking this warm weather, the temperature has been up and down here too! hard to adjust.

It makes me so happy to see you drawing these!!
Keep up the awesomeness :D !

Haha yes it’s been a really crazy and a hell of a crap year and the next will start surreal and even more crazy. But I feel that 2020 going to be a good one (yeah I think that every year but it sucked anyway...) starting with 2 sons and getting married on 2-2-2020. I think even more good things will come and it’s about !#@%& time 😂

I skipped inktober as I didn’t want more stress in my life but maybe next year (yeah right with two babies...). Anyway I wanted to say that I really like your drawing especially the expression of the character and the idea/concept! And I really like seeing all those ink artworks :)


Hey girl, no promises but Inkvember is kind of on my mind. Your perseverence here is like a beacon of light, just wanted to let you know! Here is a post where I mention you too!

You have vast imagination and outstanding drawing ability... I guess if you make comic it would be great...
Seeing your drawing makes me want to give color on it... The character looks so cute 💕

Oh mate love his sandals XD! Make sense since he's always irradiating hotnesses all over. The writing is touching my friend, when we're most blue we only need a little true warmth to melt away the bluenesses. Curious to see where your muse is leading you to... like... show us... please? onegai?
