The Hunger Games (Harry Potter Edition Part 2- Dobby’s Story)

It has been so much fun writing these stories based of the results from the Hunger Games simulator. Writing Dobby’s story was slightly more challenging due to the way he speaks, but it has been the most fun to write (mainly because Dobby is adorable and my favourite Harry Potter character). So much fun in fact, that I got a little carried away and pulled a picture of Dobby into Autodesk Sketchbook (a digital drawing app) and edited the photo to give Dobby a sister elf named Marshmallow. This will be the last in this series so I hope you enjoy, but before we get started let’s recap on the tributes.IMG_0146IMG_0151

(Warning: The simulator made Dobby do and see a lot of disturbing things in this story. It also made him rather evil at times, which is so ironically funny)

The Tale of a Brave House Elf

The Reaping
Dobby never considered Dobby a brave elf, but when the newspaper told Dobby the reaping was coming to District 12. Dobby had to learn to be brave quickly. The day of the reaping came around very fast and being a proud free house elf, Dobby put on the best clothes. A sock Dobby was given by Dobby’s good friend Harry Potter. Then Dobby hurried out the door and raced to the town square, to attend the reaping.

Dobby was a nervous elf, Dobby’s knees knocked together as Dobby stood in line. All the young house elves were gathered in the town square. All stood in perfect rows, facing the stage as they waited for the results of the reaping. Dobby was very scared so closed Dobby’s eyes and preyed the sorting hat would not choose Dobby’s name. The sorting hat clears his throat and the square fell eerily quiet. It brought its mouth close to the microphone and in a loud clear voice it revealed the name of the first tribute chosen for the games. “Kreacher” the hat yelled out. Kreacher was not very kind, Dobby even once got in a fight with Kreacher, so Dobby was pleased with the sorting hat’s first choice.

IMG_0144The sorting hat then shouted out the name of the second Tribute, “Marshmallow”. Dobby’s blood ran cold. Marshmallow is Dobby’s precious little sister. Dobby seen the peacekeepers grab little Marshmallow by the arm. Dobby felt all panicked, Dobby could not let them harm little Marshmallow and force her to fight in the dangerous hunger games. Dobby must stop them. Dobby felt anger then suddenly got very brave and shouted at the top of Dobby’s lungs “Get your filthy wizarding hands of sister Marshmallow. You shall not harm Marshmallow. Dobby volunteers to take Marshmallow’s place”. Before Dobby could utter another word, Dobby was grabbed and shoved on a train with Kreacher and shipped of to the hunger games.

The Beginning of the Games
Dobby trained very hard and was so pleased, when Dobby learnt that Harry Potter was in the games, too. Time moved too quickly and soon Dobby was standing on a podium waiting for the sound of the horn to signal the start of the hunger games. Dobby felt scared, but most scared for dear friend Harry Potter. Dobby does not want to fight friends but must if Dobby wants to stay alive.

The horn sounded, but Dobby was so frightened and froze on the podium. Dobby looked for Harry Potter and seen him running away from the Cornucopia. Dobby then looked for Kreacher and seen him fighting with prior young master Draco Malfoy and that scary lady Bellatrix Lestrange. Bellatrix triumphantly and killed them both. This made Dobby even more afraid. Dobby scanned the Cornucopia once more and seen Harry Potter’s horrid cousin, Dudley Dursley gathers as much food as he could carry. Dobby decided to get some food, too and ran towards the Cornucopia, but before Dobby could get close, Dobby seen Peter Pettigrew break poor Hagrid’s nose for a basket of bread. Dobby’s fled from the Cornucopia in fear, but was nearly squashed by the falling bodies of Luna Lovegood and Neville Longbottom, who had both fed each other poison berries.

Day 1
Dobby was all alone now in the deep dark woods, but knowing sister Marshmallow is safe at home keeps Dobby going. Earlier, Dobby seen Harry Potter and was about to call out to him, when Dobby seen Harry Potter was with his teacher Severus Snape. The two started fighting so Dobby ducked behind a tree to avoid being seen. Dobby was about to help Harry Potter, when Dobby noticed Harry Potter had defeated Severus Snape and decided to spare his life. Dobby thought it might be best to stay always from Harry Potter for now, so kept on walking through the woods. Soon Dobby came across Dudley Dursley with his pile of food. Dobby waited until Dudley Dursley wasn’t looking and stole his food.
Dobby then heard 5 cannon shots in the distance and looked up at the sky to see the faces of the fallen tributes.IMG_0148Night fell, Dobby could hear Dudley Dursley and Peter Pettigrew telling each other stories about themselves. Dobby fears Dudley Dursley will want revenge on Dobby for stealing his food, so searched for somewhere else to rest. After walking for a while Dobby heard the comforting sound of Harry Potter quietly humming, so decided this was good place to rest for the night. As Dobby sits on the forest floor, Dobby thought about winning the games and returning home to little sister Marshmallow, a hero.

Day 2
Dobby awoken to the sound of old Master Lucius Malfoy screaming and went to investigate. From a distance, Dobby could see that old master Lucius Malfoy had injured himself. Dobby found this very funny and laugh until the sock Harry Potter gave Dobby, fell off.

Dobby decided to walk around today, but Dobby bumped into Remus Lupin. Dobby remembered that Dobby doesn’t much like Remus and thinks about killing him. Remus Lupin must have noticed the look of blood lust in Dobby’s eyes, because he diverted Dobby’s attention by shouting “look over there, the dark lord is beating Lucius Malfoy with his own shoe”, then Remus ran away. Disappointed Dobby turned to chase after Remus Lupin, but then Dobby seen Sirius Black being attacked by that crazy cat lady Dolores Umbridge. However, to Dobby’s displeasure Sirius Black managed to escape and they both survived.

Before Dobby could quench this new found feeling of blood lust, the Arena was filled with Carnivorous squirrels that start to attack the tributes. Dobby ran as fast as Dobby’s little elf legs would move. Dobby looked to the right and seen that evil snake Nagini and old master Lucius Malfoy was running away from the Carnivorous squirrels together. The squirrels easily outsmart the two, separating them from each other and killing them both.

After seeing the killing power of the squirrels, Dobby quickened the pace, catching up with Dolores Umbridge and Dudley Dursley, who were previously running at full speed in front of him. Dudley suddenly cried out from the pain of leg cramp and couldn’t run any further. Dolores Umbridge, no longer being able to see Dudley in agony, killed Dudley Dursley so that he didn’t have to also suffer the anguish of being bitten of death by squirrels.

Dobby picked up the pace once again, to out run the Carnivorous squirrels. Up ahead Dobby seen Hagrid, very out of breath and struggling to run. Dobby remembered Hagrid was good to Dobby so shouted words of encouragement, but Hagrid fell to his knee and could run no further. Dobby’s heart felt like it might shatter, as Dobby looked at friendly Hagrid on his knee and thought about the horror Hagrid would suffer when the squirrels caught up with him. With teary eyes, Dobby killed the friendly Hagrid to save him from having to suffer a truly horrific death.

Dobby ran fast and somehow survived the Carnivorous squirrel attack, as well as Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, Alastor Moody, Albus Dumbledore, Bellatrix Lestrange, Hermione Granger, Peter Pettigrew, Ron Weasley and Harry Potter. Dobby heard 7 cannon shots in the distance and with a heavy heart looked up to the sky at Dobby’s fallen friends and tributes.IMG_0147 (1)Night fell again, distraught and traumatised by today’s events Alastor Moody begged Dobby to kill him. Dobby did not want any more innocent blood on Dobby’s elf hands so refused, keeping Alastor Moody alive.

Day 3
Despite the events of the day before, Dobby had a quiet day. Dobby got a supply pod filled with medical supplies from an unknown sponsor. In Dobby’s heart Dobby knows it was from dear sister Marshmallow. Later that day, Dobby noticed Remus Lupin stalking Harry Potter. Dobby regrets not killing Remus Lupin.

Night quickly came again, Dobby is convinced Remus Lupin is pure evil, after seeing him share a shelter with that wicked lady Bellatrix Lestrange. In the distance, Dobby heard the voice of Hermione Granger begging Severus Snape to kill her. Thankfully, Severus Snape refused and kept Hermione Granger alive. Dobby could no longer cope with the stress and turmoil of the games, so screamed out a despairing cry for help. Sadly, Dobby’s cries of anguish were not answered and no one came to Dobby’s aid.

Day 4
Day 4 in the games is a bit of a blur for Dobby. Dobby can briefly remember seeing Sirius Black attacking Dolores Umbridge, but thinks she escaped. Dobby also thinks Dobby seen Alastor Moody falling and injuring himself. Dobby thought this was very funny. Later that day Dobby seen smoke in the distance, but thought is was better not to investigate.

A little after that, Dobby thought Dobby had lost the plot and that Dobby’s eyes were playing tricks. Dobby was sitting near a cliff and seen Harry Potter having a knife fight with his friend Hermione Granger. Dobby swears Dobby’s mind was being tricky, because next thing Dobby seen was Harry Potter pushing Hermione Granger off the cliff. Dobby is sure Harry Potter would never do such a thing, but then Dobby’s heard a cannon shot in the distance and looks up at the sky.IMG_0149
Dobby’s good friend Harry Potter is scary. Dobby thinks it would be good to stay away from him for now.

Night fell, nights in the games are very noisy now. Dobby heard many things while trying to get to sleep. Dobby could hear evil Remus Lupin and Bellatrix Lestrange telling each other stories about themselves, in the distance. Dobby could also hear Peter Pettigrew and Sirius Black fighting, a short distance away. Dobby thinks Peter Pettigrew won but spared Sirius Black life. Dobby was also given more medical supplies from an unknown sponsor.

Day 5
Nothing much happened today. Dobby spent the whole day collecting tasty fruit from a tree and filled Dobby’s little house elf belly. At night Dobby was a bad house elf, Dobby destroyed teacher Severus Snape’s supplies while he was sleeping. Dobby will have to punish himself later, but for now Dobby will listen to the cheerfully singing of Ron Weasley, Head mater Albus Dumbledore, and Peter Pettigrew, in the distance.

Day 6
Dobby woke up very hungry and decided to go hunting. Dobby was walking along the riverbank when Dobby seen the nice plump juicy legs of Dolores Umbridge and made a plan to sneak up behind Dolores Umbridge and take a bite out of her delicious looking calves. But before Dobby could carry out this brilliant plan, Ron Weasley appeared out of nowhere and speared Dolores Umbridge through the abdomen. Dobby was not pleased with losing Dobby’s supper, but fears Ron Weasley would kill Dobby too, if he seen Dobby. Dobby then heard a cannon shot and looked up. IMG_0150
The night was very busy and Dobby witnessed some very bad things. Dobby was minding Dobby’s own business when Peter Pettigrew appeared in front of Dobby. Before Dobby could do anything, Remus Lupin stabbed Peter Pettigrew in the back. Dobby quickly ran away in case Dobby was next on evil Remus Lupin list.

Shortly after that Dobby seen Sirius Black die while he was trying to escape the arena. Dobby’s ordeal did not end there, while searching for a safe place to sleep, Dobby seen Harry Potter severely injury his teacher Severus Snape, then put Severus Snape out of his misery. Dobby was very sad seeing his good friend Harry Potter do awful things. Then Dobby remembered the awful thing Dobby nearly did early that day. Dobby cried big heavy wet tears, staining Dobby’s face. Dobby continued to cry until falling asleep.

Day 7
The cornucopia was refilled with food, supplies, weapons, and items from the tributes’ families. Dobby could not stand being hungry one second longer, so team up with Bellatrix Lestrange, Ron Weasley and Alastor Moody to get supplies and weapons. Later that day Dobby also received explosives from an unknown sponsor.

Dobby thought the day was going well, until Dobby witnessed head master Albus Dumbledore scream out “I cannot handle these circumstances” then throw himself on a landmine. Dobby heard 4 more cannon shots and looked to the sky.IMG_0154That night Dobby felt very awkward when Dobby stumbled upon Remus Lupin snuggling with Alastor Moody. To make things worse, at the same time Dobby was creeped out by the quiet humming of that scary lady Bellatrix Lestrange, coming from close by.
Dobby has done and seen some horrible things in the hunger games and is beginning to question Dobby’s sanity.

Day 8
Today was the saddest for Dobby, early that morning Dobby seen his good friend Harry Potter arming a landmine. Dobby decided to loudly greet Harry Potter to grab his attention. This did not go as well as Dobby planned. Dobby’s sudden loud voice caused Harry Potter to jump, accidentally detonating the landmine, killing Harry Potter.

Hearing Dobby’s cries of despair, Alastor Moody, Bellatrix Lestrange and Ron Weasley rushed towards Dobby’s location. Most likely, hoping to put Dobby out of Dobby’s misery. However, they do not get the chance to, as from the corner of the eye Dobby noticed evil Remus Lupin holding a detonator. Before Dobby could react, evil Remus Lupin sets off an explosive, killing all other tributes including brave house elf Dobby.

 

5 cannon shots ring out in the distance. The night sky was lit up with the faces of the fallen tributes and amongst them was the face of our brave house elf Dobby. An elf who died to save his little sister Marshmallow.IMG_0153

The winner of the hunger games is Remus Lupin from District 6!IMG_0152

The Hunger Games (Harry Potter Edition Part 1)

The Hunger Games simulators are so much fun. In the last post we had an anime duo edition of the hunger games, this time around I bring to you the Harry Potter edition. To keep thing interesting, I’m going to present the results from the simulator a little differently. This time I’ve taken the results and turned them into 2 little stories, both from the perspective of a tribute. The first which is shared in this post is about Ginny Weasley and the second, which I’ll share in the next post is about Dobby (I had so much fun writing that one). Hope you enjoy the story, but before we get started let’s have a quick look at this round’s tributes.
(Warning: These simulators can be very violent and dark at times and may trigger those of a sensitive nature)

IMG_0146IMG_0151

Ginny Weasley and the Great Betrayal

My brother Ron and I have been chosen in the reaping to become tributes in this year’s hunger games. I am finding it hard to come to terms with this horrible fate, so have decided to keep a diary to help cope with my turmoil. My brother Ron and I have both trained very hard for the games and tomorrow the dreaded games begin. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t mind splittingly nervous. The fact that the use of magic is prohibited in the games, is not helping to put my mind at ease. I must rely on my own wit and strength to survive the games. My only comfort is having my big brother Ron by my side, during this awful time. I do not expect to last long in the games, but I take great comfort in knowing I’ll spend my last few moments with my beloved big brother Ron.

Day 1
Just as I thought the beginning of the games was a complete bloodbath. When the horn sounded, I quickly glanced towards the cornucopia and saw your close family friend Remus Lupin grabbing a sword. It was then that my eyes fell upon the terrifying sight of Sirius Black strangling Aberforth Dumbledore with a rope. Feeling fear and panic come over me, my eyes searched the cornucopia for my brother Ron. I caught sight of him running away from the Cornucopia with his friends Hermione and Harry. I tried to move to join them, when I felt the strong rough hand of Alastor Moody grab me by the arm. Scared for my life and not knowing his intentions, I used all my strength to break free from Moody’s grasp, but in my panic, I sprinted in the opposite direction than Ron, away from the cornucopia.

Now separated from my brother, I spent the day exploring the arena in search of Ron. It was to my horror that while exploring, I stumbled upon that creep Peter Pettigrew attacking Professor Albus Dumbledore. Luckily Dumbledore escaped, but this sight has shaken me. What if this is how I’ll meet my end in this game? Shortly after, the sound of 5 cannon shots could be heard in the distance. In the sky I could see the images of the first of the fallen tributes. Part of me was happy that I made it through the first day, but other part of me is terrified for the night ahead.IMG_0148

My first night alone in this god forsaking games. I could hear the sad sound of Dolores Umbridge singing herself to sleep, somewhere close by. Frightened to my very bones, I timidly walked in complete darkness trying to find a safe place to rest. Seeing a tiny glow of light in the distance and cautiously went to investigate, hoping the light might belong to my brother Ron. Hugging the cover of the trees and bushes, I got close enough to make out two figures, belonging to Hermione Granger and Alastor Moody. I held back remaining hidden in the bushes, listening intently. It was then I realised Hermione Granger was begging Moody to kill her. Thankfully Moody refused, keeping Hermione Granger alive.

Still wary of Moody, I retreated back into the darkness of the woods, only to be attacked by the dark lord himself, Lord Voldemort. He grabbed me from behind and threw me to the ground. With a sickle in his other hand, he raised it up high in the air and brought it plummeting towards my head. Out of reflex I quickly moved out of the way of the curved blade. The blade hit the forest floor and dug deep into the soil, getting stuck in the process. Lord Voldemort struggled to free the blade and seizing my only opportunity to overpower him and survive this ordeal. I shoved Voldemort with all of my might, sending him flying. I grabbed the sickle from the ground to prevent Voldemort rearming himself. I turned to run, but the fast-moving Voldemort was already back on his feet and quickly knocked me to the ground once more. He tried to pull the sickle from my hands, but I hung on tightly, refusing to let go. I desperately tried to kick Voldemort away, to break free of him. I kicked as hard as I could, landing a kick to Voldemort’s right leg, knocking him of balance. Voldemort fell forward, landing on the blade. I felt it go through something soft and Voldemort stopped struggling. I pushed him off me and realised the horror of the situation. Voldemort was bleeding to death from a wound I had inflicted. I walked away and left him to die, I fear this game has turned me into a monster.

Day 2
After the events of yesterday and last night, I couldn’t sleep a wink. At dawn, I heard Hagrid screaming out in pain. I thought he might have fallen and be in need of help, so I went to investigate. I located the source of the screams and seen the reason for Hagrid anguish. Hagrid was being attacked by that terrifying snake Nagini. Just as I was about to jump in and save Hagrid, he managed to escape and ran deeper into the forest.

Later that day I thought I had finally found my salvation, when I spotted my brother Ron in the distance. I ran as fast as I could towards Ron, only to have my moment of hope shatter right before my eyes. There in front of me, my brother had beaten Hermione to the ground and was about to deliver the final blow, when I instinctively cried out for him to stop. Ron ceased his attack, sparing Hermione’s life. Ron raised to his feet and turned to face me. He called out to me with open arms, but the look in his eyes and red stains on his clothes. I could not stand to look at him in that state, it both scared and disgusted me, so I turned and ran. It appears the games have done terrible things to my brother as well.

Before I got far, I crashed into Harry somehow managing not to knock him off his feet. Harry caught me in his arms and held me tightly. “At last a friend”, I thought to myself as I returned Harry’s embrace, but when I looked up at Harry’s face, I seen the same cold crazed eyes as my brother’s, glaring down at me. Getting a horrible feeling from those eyes and sensing danger, I pushed Harry away and ran away as fast as I could.

Out of breath, I decided to rest at the foot of a huge oak tree. Enjoying the shade of the tree, I was sat there for about an hour when I looked up and spotted something on one of its branches. A rather scruffy looking squirrel was perched high up in the tree. It first I thought nothing of it, but as I sat staring up at the squirrel, I noticed something was very wrong with this squirrel. Foam was spilling from the corners of its mouth and its limbs seemed to twitch on their own. Thinking the squirrel was rabid, I quietly stood up and prepared to sneak away unnoticed, when out of nowhere other rabid looking squirrel appeared on a neighbouring branch. Then as if in unison, several more appeared in the surrounding trees and more again, until rabid squirrel covered the treetops. A cold shiver ran down my spine, I did not get a good feeling about this.

Suddenly, I heard screams in the distance and out of instinct I started running in the opposite direction of the screams. I glimpsed over my shoulder to behind me and to my horror, those rabid squirrels were chasing me. Catching a closer look of their disturbingly large teeth and glassy blood thirsty eyes, I quickened my pace. Ahead of me, I seen Peter Pettigrew and Seamus Finnigan brawling, oblivious to the horrifying danger that was about to come racing towards them. Not wanting anymore blood on my hands I yelled “RUN”. Peter Pettigrew and Seamus Finnigan looked my way and seeing the huge scurry of rabid squirrels pursuing me, they began running. I quickly over took them, then glanced behind me. From the corner of my eye, I seen Peter Pettigrew shoving Seamus Finnigan into the squirrels. Not wanting to see the dreadful sight of Seamus being torn in pieces by squirrels, I looked away and focused on the path in front of me. Even after traveling some distance, I could still hear Seamus’s desperate cries of pain and anguish.

Still running for my life, I looked ahead and seen my brother Ron, also trying to escape from the blood thirsty squirrels. Noticing me behind him, he slightly slowed his pace to match mine. Confused by this, I turned my head to look at him and seen him wearing a troubling sinister smile upon his face. Before I could react, I felt him shove me in the directions of the squirrels. I fell backwards hitting my head on a rock. Immediately after, I was engulfed by a sea of squirrels covering me from head to toe. Being badly bitten and scratched, I tried to fight back and throw the squirrels of me. But it was in vain, the blow I took to my head was too great and the pain the squirrels inflicted was so intense, that I quickly lost consciousness. My eyelids closed never to open again.

In my final moments, I had been betrayed and died at the hands of my beloved big brother. However, I cannot hold this against him. The games do strange things to a person and can turn the most caring of us into complete monsters. My first act as a ghost was to record my final few hours in this diary, so that others may know of the horrors we were forced to go through in the Hunger Games.IMG_0147 (2)

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this little story I’ve written. I’m giving my shoulder another week to heal, but plan on getting back to my usual post next week. The next part of this story is about the house elf Dobby. I’ve used the same set results to create Dobby’s story and you’ll be happy to hear that the winner of this simulation is revealed in that story. If things go to plan it should be posted soon.

As always thanks for reading.

The Hunger Games (Anime Duo Edition)

Something rather unfortunate happened last weekend. Don’t worry there wasn’t a reaping and I’m not partaking in the hunger games, I just twisted my shoulder in a manner no shoulder should be twisted and haven’t been able to draw. But let’s not let that stop us having fun over on this blog. Instead of the usual art or review type post, I thought I’d let you all in on a little weird thing I do for a bit of fun and a laugh. Which is putting characters and people through a hunger games simulator. Before you panic and think I’m hosting the hunger games in my back garden, let me explain what the hunger games simulator is. Basically, it’s a simulator available on the internet where you enter 24 names (12 teams of 2) and it produces a hunger games story for you (The hunger games, is a movie where 2 young people from each of the 12 Districts are forced to partake in a survival game, that only ends when there is one participant left alive).

As you can imagine, you can get some really strange but entertaining stories when you enter fictional characters into these simulators. As a lot of the people who follow this blog enjoy anime, I thought why not start The Hunger Games of with an Anime Duo Edition. To add my own personal touch to the story I’ve made my own tributes, fallen tributes and winner sheets for this story (since they could be made using one hand and since the simulator’s sheet weren’t very good quality) and I’ve added some commentary to the story, which is in brackets.

So, let’s begin the game and may the odds be ever in your favour:
(Warning: These simulators can be very violent and dark at times and may trigger those of a sensitive nature)

The cornucopia is replenished with food, supplies, weapons, and memoirs from the tributes’ families.

Levi decides not to go to The Feast.

BulmaAshL, and Meliodas form a suicide pact, killing themselves. (Holy cheese on a cracker, that’s so dark. The hunger games are no picnic, but glob I wasn’t expecting that)

Victor decides not to go to The Feast.

Day 4
Levi severely injures Victor and leaves him to die. (Victor really stood no chance against Levi)

5 cannon shots can be heard in the distance. The following tributes have fallen:IMG_0113

Statisticsgame 3

Hope you enjoyed the story; the simulator isn’t usually as dark as that, it’s normally a lot more comical (it’s really the luck of the draw which type of story you get). At best I won’t be able to draw for at least a week, so I plan on doing a few of these. Maybe a Harry Potter edition or other movie themed one and to keep it interesting I’ll put a spin the story delivery part.

As always Thanks for reading.

The Frustration of The One Line Art Challenge

Every so often it’s nice to attempt one of these little drawing challenges you see posted all over the internet. It can be a lot of fun, watching others attempt to create art in strange and peculiar ways, then trying to create art in the same way yourself. In a kind of weird way, it can turn learning a new art skill into a really fun but challenging game (I’ll leave a little video below so you can see for yourself).

(This best attempt I’ve seen so far at The One Line Art Challenge. It’s so unbelievably awesome)

However, sometimes these challenges seem a lot more fun than they actually are and the results may not turn out as you’d like. The one line art challenge was one of those challenges, but as it’s only a bit of fun and we’re all friend here, I decided to still share my attempts at this challenge (WordPress is nice in that way). This challenge was a little more complicated than other challenges attempted on this blog, because it has a few very strict rules, which I’ll quickly explain before showing you my attempt.

Rules:

  • Your drawing must consist of only one continuous line
  • Once the tip of the pencil touches the page, it can’t be lifted until the drawing is finished.
  • No erasing, whatever marks you make on the paper stay.
  • No tagging in a friend to take over drawing when your hand gets sores (and it will get sore).

thumbnail_20181110_162712Hmm…. yeah it was so much harder than it seemed. I should probably explain this beautiful monstrosity you see before you. I started of drawing a Nightmare Before Christmas style snake, but kind of got a tiny bit frustrated with not being able to lift the pencil and went on a little rage scribble (little being an understatement). After unleashing my full wrath upon the page, I decided to turn my scribbles into a spiderweb and drew a wee happy spider.

Although the results won’t that great, I suppose if you look at things through the eyes of an optimist you could say it was somewhat successful. For one, I managed to complete the challenge without lifting my pencil of the page, so the drawing is one continuous line. Also, as the piece is a true expression of my frustration, in some peoples’ eyes it could be classed as real art. Maybe not good real art but real art all the same. Therefore, my attempt at this challenge ticks both the one line box and the art box, so technically speaking it was a successful attempt (glob, talk about flogging a dead horse).

So that was my attempt at the extremely difficult one line art challenge, hope you enjoyed this post and…

Speed Drawing Yuri on Ice (Part 2)

As promised, part two of the Yuri on ice speed drawing (for a recap of part 1 click here). I was hoping to get this out soon, but unfortunately this week has been extremely stressful and busy, so things didn’t go as planned. It’s been one of those weeks where your patience and ability to remain calm are truly tested and to top it all off, I’m feeling a little height conscious at the minute (I was mistaken for a child at the Halloween fair. I know I’m a bit on the short side and under 5.3ft/160cm, but glob I most definitely do not look like a child. Peeps need to go to Specsavers to get their eyes tested).
Getting back on track, in this video we pick up where we left off and add light and a bit of colour variation to Yuri’s face. Which surprisingly takes a lot less time than adding shadow, so we also tackle the eye, hair and background. Thankfully my habit of canvas spinning is less noticeable in this part. Hope you enjoy! (If the video appears blurry increase the videos Quality setting, to a number above 360p. YouTube’s default settings don’t seem to work well on digital art. This should fix any blurriness.)

To finish this post of I thought I’d give a quick insight into the techniques used in this video. This piece has quite a lot of layers and required quite a few different brushes, but the main technique is to roughly determine where the areas of light and shadow are, blend and tidy the edges and adjust the opacity (Canvas spinning is optional). You can skip the tidying step by doing things more precisely and neatly first time around, but I find you waste a lot time doing that and the end results are the same (plus there’s something strangely satisfying about cleaning up the edges).

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post and…
