I'm taking inspiration from one of sweetpinkpixie's ideas and basing some of my pieces on my own RP characters, as well as the provided prompts. I'll be choosing prompts based on which I'm feeling particularly inspired by, and same for characters when I incorporate them into the piece.

I am still not confident in my ability to draw figures and faces especially without a reference, but I'll be tentatively aiming to Grow a Character if I decide I'm up to the challenge.

I cannot believe you did this with your very own hand. The amount of patience that such detailed work must require is absolutely unfathomable to me, you are truly a master of all trades, felix. but i'll never ever say that again. this hungarian horntail looks like it can swallow me whole, but i also want to keep it in my pocket forever as a friend, you know? the shading is magnificent as well. ugh. and i really love that you're using your characters as inso for this challenge, if this first example is anything to go by, we're in for such a wonderfully creative treat

I am seriously in awe of the detail and the skill shown in that dragon. It looks amazing! I especially love how cohesive the spikes/spines are to the rest of the picture!

You are so talented, Felix! I LOVE the details and how it feels almost as if you could hurt your finger by putting it to one of those spikes! And I love how you connected Nem to the bodyguard prompt! I can't wait to see more!

listen, when I tell you I began to have regrets almost as soon as I started. scales. idk why I didn't learn my lesson from drawing a snake last year, but scales are the WORST. and the reference image was so detailed so I couldn't stop myself from going overboard and being too stubborn to quit and it took me about eight thousand years. I have possibly raised your expectations way too high cause this might be the best thing I end up posting

anywhomst. tHanK yOu, I'm glad u like the shading cause that's always been my favourite part of the drawing thing.

thank you! I mean, as bodyguards go, I'll take a hungarian horntail any day. majestic beasts too good for this world, too pure. which is why they don't exist probably.

it seems like the longer I focus on art the more I like getting into the details, so thank you! the spikes were a whole issue, I had to sit and stare at the ref for a few minutes to really See™ them and how they needed to be worked in

FANKS. I'll probably try and include that train of thought thing with my others where the link is not immediately obvious (that only came about cause as soon as I finished the dragon I went to write an explanation in the blurb and nem was like 'no' and i was like '.............' and I feel like that will be a running theme)

also it's funny, in that same sketchbook i found the page where I was learning how to do textures with pen and ink. character growth.

thank you! honestly. hOnEsTLy I could not draw anything like this from my imagination. if I don't have a static reference image I am lost, but aside from that I really enjoy copying/translating details providing I have the time. I'm glad you like it :3

honestly, way too much time sitting and staring between the piece and the reference. and a LOT of erasing. and a lot of 'why am I making this so complicated' but it's a nice feeling when it all starts to come together. anyway aNyWaY thank you so much!

thanks! some of those spikes were tricky cause lines are deceptively difficult smh. long straight lines are my downfall (which made this next prompt a nightmare) and they kept being all wobbly, and i was like 'will you stop'. but they didn't listen.

I'm sure Nem is going to feature here a lot too

thank you! I really love using these pens, but at the same time I always get really nervous about making the first pen line in case i ruin the foundation sketch, which always takes a long time and I don't want to have to redo it. it usually works out okay but i've not yet been brave enough to try it on portraits which is... the next step. I find the texture and shading stuff to be wicked fun so I'm glad you liked it here :3

day two:
_____remembrall

__________noah fence
__________neville longbottom #3
SPOILER!!: day 2 - remembrall

A6 paper, mechanical pencil (0.3), and black fineliners (0.1, 0.03, and 0.05)

I have a character by the name of noah fence (yes, I know).
when he was nine he was discovered wandering around a
wizarding street with no memory of how he'd got there, who
he was, who his parents were, or much of anything. his mind
had been completely wiped. for a while he was absolutely
obsessed with writing everything down, scared it would happen
again seeing as nobody knew why it had happened in the first
place, and just terrified of forgetting anything in general. he
figured if he had a written record of everything he'd ever
witnessed or done or said, every interaction, every friend,
he wouldn't forget anything ever again. so.

noah fence → remember all → remembrall → notebooks

Ooh I love the different values you were able to get in these notebooks. (Also, notebooks *__*) You have a really nice sense of 3D form here. And I like how they're all a little different. Really nicely done. Does Noah still do this?

okay...okay but...okay BUT...that line art to make the curve in all those journals is just so OBVIOUSLY...big fan of this one two as Mavis AND Victor are a little emo over here. I tried so hard to draw a stack of journals with my Paige doodle over in my portfolio and failed miserably (hence the open book which came out better and came to my hand more easily) ... so I am affectionately jealous of your gift with perception and angles and just

felix you have done it again!!!!!! ugh. the SHADING is what gets me the most every time, i think. so i am very glad it is the fun part for you because it is so pleasing to look at for me so it is a win-win. winners all around. aNyWaY. ugh i cannot get over how real life your art is (pretend i know the actual art jargon for this thank you). i could reach out and grab those notebooks they are so 3d and realistic (is this the word i was looking for??) and full of life. ugh big egg. i mean. uh. fan.

Just beautiful. Even if you have to use a reference picture like you said, I still couldn't draw like that even with a reference picture. Just so much talent.

Listen. I like what you do and I like how you do it, but just right now, the thing that I appreciate the most from you is that you're explaining the wild trajectory that gets you from your prompt to the final picture you sketch. I just like your brain.

The time you spent on those spikes clearly show because they really are so well blended in!

And those BOOKS! I just want to sit down and browse through the pages of all of them to see what secrets they hold. The spines are all amazing and I love all the differing sizes you used.

thanks :3 after I inked the outline I had a sudden '... oh' moment of realising I didn't know how to make sure they all looked different so that was a whole thing, I'm glad it worked out

aaand no he does not. towards the end of his first year it stopped being about keeping a record of everything and was more a compulsion/comfort. during the Neo-Alliance takeover he thought they were looking for him so stopped entirely, to avoid bringing attention to himself. and now he struggles to write much of anything at all, so never started again.

okay...okay but...okay BUT...that line art to make the curve in all those journals is just so OBVIOUSLY...big fan of this one two as Mavis AND Victor are a little emo over here. I tried so hard to draw a stack of journals with my Paige doodle over in my portfolio and failed miserably (hence the open book which came out better and came to my hand more easily) ... so I am affectionately jealous of your gift with perception and angles and just
I thought a couple of yours might have things to say. but also, stacks of books are deceptively difficult??? it's the long lines for me. I hate them. straight lines are horrible, especially when they need to be sort of parallel or symmetrical.

anyway pSh get outta town (no stay)

realistic is the word yes and THANK cause that's a style I really appreciate in art I look at (though they DON'T appreciate it in this one portrait competition I watch every year and it hurts but that's not for here) and also try to aim for. especially hyperrealism but I'm a long long long way off that one. one day maybe.

eGG.

I would sell you my brain for half a groat. but also I'm just here to share the wealth and right now the wealth is jumping from point A to point J and detouring to point Z on the way. these journeys are even more ridiculous in real time but at least they're entertaining

And those BOOKS! I just want to sit down and browse through the pages of all of them to see what secrets they hold. The spines are all amazing and I love all the differing sizes you used.
so many secrets *-* thank you! the real challenge with that subject, as I quickly found out, was putting some kind of variety into it and even when the sizes were different I still wanted the spines and page edges to be varied too and I was happy to get something like that figured out \o/


I had a really ridiculous few days where everything was doing its best to go wrong and even when I tried to draw, every line was just another problem child. I took a break and also had a word with myself about reining it in. now I'm catching up but I have several pieces I started and abandoned and can finish so it's not too bad.

anyway.

day three:
_____moon

__________theo montes
__________luna lovegood #22
SPOILER!!: day 3 - moon

A6 paper, mechanical pencil (0.3), and black fineliners (0.3, 0.1, 0.03, and 0.05)

I'm not too wild about this one but I was really just playing around with ideas.
it didn't photograph well which was tres unhelpful.
I had intended to do the whole page in that background but it didn't take
long for me to regret trying so I reined it in for the sake of time. might go
back and do the rest at some point, and also even it up a bit. it's not meant
to be solid black, I wanted there to be gaps and have it made up of lines.
and to be honest it does look a lot nicer on the page. I think it'll look better
with a full background.

no real train of thought behind this one. theo montes is a big daydreamer.

he lives most of his life in his head and can vividly conjure up any daydream
he wants to experience. so this just kind of made sense at the time.

also he was in ombrelune when at beauxbatons as a first year. so. moon. yes.

day four:
_____comfort

__________milo evans
__________luna lovegood #24
SPOILER!!: day 4 - comfort

"... it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."
_______________- J.R.R. Tolkien



A6 paper, mechanical pencil (0.3), and black fineliner (0.05)

sauron milo evans likes tolkien and his works and spoke up when I saw the prompt

so here we are

milo evans → comfort → hobbit-hole → bag end

wicked sketchy cause I liked experimenting with a similar style last year and
made a deliberate effort to not get too caught up in the detail or I'd have been
there for hours. was going to add colour but decided against it.
also it was meant to look a lot looser than this and I feel like I'd have liked
it better if it was either super meticulous or super loose but not so much
this in-between area, and now I just keep looking at the mistakes.
but. say la vee.

day five:
_____slug club

__________just felix this time
__________ginny weasley #30
SPOILER!!: day 5 - slug club

A6 paper, mechanical pencil (0.3), and black fineliners (0.1, 0.03, and 0.05)

I don't want to talk about it

but I will anyway

slug → slugger → baseball

+

club → bat

and if that doesn't fly then I added an actual mollusc
so nobody can tell me this isn't a slug wielding a club
