FSM Update – Projects Galore!

I have a lot going on in the near future. I have several projects in the making. Things are gradually slowing down with my landscaping job so I will have more time for my art!

We have two more days until Inktober so I will focus a lot of my time to completing this. I finally decided what theme I will follow this year and surprisingly it will not be horror! If there are any gamers out there you may know of Elder Scrolls Online, ESO for short. They have created their own prompt list for Inktober and it is my husband’s favorite game. He streams it live on Twitch.tv at RabidClown_Gaming. If you love the game too, check out his channel! I thought it would be neat to combine our interests this year and follow the ESO prompt list. If your not familiar with the game it deals with dragons, monsters, sorcerers, warriors, kings and queens….a huge realm of fantasy to vaguely sum it up! I enjoy drawing fantasy but never give myself the opportunity. Now it’s time to give it a turn.

I will also be spending all of October preparing for an Arts & Crafts Show that I will be participating in! It is November 3rd and I will share a separate post about this as the day draws closer with more details. I am currently working on a group of mini canvases. It has been a couple years since I’ve worked with the minis and I am having so much fun with it! It has also been a couple years since I have done an art show so my nerves are a little frazzled. For the most part though, I’m very confident in how it will turn out and I’m not procrastinating this time! That is a huge help for keep stress levels down!! XD Here is a sneak peek at some of the minis I will have at the show.

After Inktober and the art show, I’ll be picking back up with my totem animal symbolism posts. I had to take a break over the Summer because I am too busy working long hours with my landscaping job. Now that the colder months are ahead of us, the work load starts to ease up and I have more time to concentrate on my totems again. Since “Sloth” was a popular piece I will study this one and share with you what I find. After that I was thinking about tackling the panda. Who doesn’t love pandas, seriously!?

Aside from all of this (yes there is more), I have started dabbling with digital art. You may have already learned about this from reading my previous post, It’s A Digital Age. I am making mandalas on my laptop and phone using the program AutoDesk Sketchbook. It is so much fun and is just another way for me to express myself no matter where I am! I still have a lot to learn as far as digital art goes but I have made the first step. I would eventually like to get Adobe Illustrator since I am more familiar with it.

Prints available here.

That about sums up what artwork is ahead of me! Busy, busy, busy! I have never felt more motivated though! I’m confident I will be able to get everything done with ease and make strides with my talents!

Thanks for stopping by this week! Make sure to check back often to see my 2019 Inktober collection grow. I will share one sketch for everyday until the end of October! Share a comment below if you are participating and I’ll be sure to follow along with you!

Happy October, free spirits!

Inktober 2018 – Drain

Of course I had to do “It” for drain. Sorry the image looks a little wonky. I couldn’t scan my sketch so I had to take a picture with my phone so it’s a little distorted!

#52 – “Who is that trip-trapping upon my bridge?”

 

Pennywise

5/1/18, Megtography #52 – “Who is that trip-trapping upon my bridge?” – My son was pretending to be a monster under the bridge when we were at the park. I decided to turn him into Pennywise using Photoshop. I’m still learning my way around the program and I had a lot of fun making this.

Inspired by Stephen King’s “IT”

#11 – I Finished “IT”

IT book

3/21/18, Megtography #11 – I Finished “IT” – and IT was amazing! This 1151 page monster, no pun intended, gave me quite the ride. I had literal goosebumps at some parts. I was lost in this book. It was like I needed to defeat/complete IT just so I could walk away from the hypnotic control the book had over me. I have conquered IT!

Inktober 2017 #1 

I’ve been obsessed with “IT” since the new movie came out. The original was always one of my favorites so I was ecstatic when I heard they were doing a remake. It was fantastic! I bought the book and started reading it yesterday. Wow…just wow. It just keeps getting creepier! 

“You’ll float too.”

I’m excited to finally begin this year’s “Inktober” challenge of drawing a sketch-a-day in ink. For my first sketch, I decided to do a clown inspired by “IT”. 

Inktober Sketch #1

It also has another meaning that ties in personally. “We all have our demons” is written on the mask. It’s true. We all have it burrowing inside us. The what-if’s and worries. The do’s and dont’s. The heartaches and hauntings of our past. Sometimes it takes all our energy to keep the demons at bay. Other times, it is still not enough and they break free. We can no longer put that fake smile on and the monster comes creeping out, ready to attack. It seems like a horror novel but it is all too real. 

Keep yourself balanced and don’t let your fear feed the demons for they will only grow stronger.

Until next time,

“I’m every nightmare you’ve ever had. I am your worst dream come true! I am everything you ever were afraid of!”
