30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Part 2

Day 10: Succubus
Do you have any idea how hard it is to draw a child succubus with out making it look like pedophile fodder?

So, I managed to make it thru my first full week.  There's something refreshing about drawing something I enjoy at night before I go to sleep.  Sadly, it doesn't help me sleep well though.

Day 8: Octomaid
Octomaid was fun, her head reminded me of Queen Elizabeth I

Day 6: Spider Girl
Spider girl is quite intent on learning to Knit.

Day 4: Naga
Hadn't heard of a Naga before this exercise.  The Wiki said that Naga in Hindi culture were usually cobras.  Although the male king cobra is the one with the hood, I really wanted to put one on my little naga girl.

Day 7: Plant Girl
I tried busting out my Tria markers for this.  It's been way too long and I was a heck of a lot rustier than I thought I'd be.

Day 5: Mermaid
Top mermaid was second and I wanted to try an angler fish inspired mermaid.  I admit I'm happier with the first, but glad I tried the second.
Day 9: Demon
Little Demon girls love AC/DC.
What you see here is this week's batch.  Only bummer about this week's batch is that I didn't have time to do a really developed color illustration on the computer.  I did get to look up a new monster I hadn't heard of yet AND I had the pleasure of trying to figure out how to make a 'cute' and pedophile detracting succubus (I'm sure this one's still probably sexy enough to attract some but I'll leave the sexually exploitative 'tween drawings to everyone else).

This last weekend I took part in a beginning puppet construction workshop put on by Lori Lane from Chatterbox Puppets.  Although I took a puppet building and performance class when I was in college, I figured it would be good to brush up on things and see how someone else approaches the idea.  I had a ton of fun and realized I had absolutely no idea what I was doing before.  You can see Todd (or Toddy Wiseass) the Anti-Lovebug below.  My husband and I did make a puppet video torturing our cat Loki with Todd but . . . I'm probably not going to post it any time soon.  Don't worry, it's not anything kinky or strange.  Just your typical "torture the pet" video.  Only with a puppet.

Todd the Anti-Lovebug made at the Chatterbox Puppets beginning puppet construction workshop.
So, big announcement for me.  I'm delving into the of realms of booth running.  I'm going to try to keep my agoraphobia in check and run my first physical booth at a convention/craft fair type experience this Bats Day Weekend (May 3rd-5th, 2013, see their Website for more details).  Since I will be having at least one new painting in the Gallery999 art show that same weekend (also part of the festivities) I figured it would only be logical to also have a booth.  More Bat's Day posts in the future, so be on the look out.
