OK so maybe I need something to do since I’m unemployed and staying at home still in recovery for a semester. Anyway, I’ve made a little challenge for myself and anyone else who’s interested in joining. I barely expect to complete one of these, let alone in any sort of order, but whatever. Do what you will with this. #neodraw for reference.
Week 1: Colours 1. Your favourite pet colour 2. A lab-only colour 3. Your least favourite colour 4. A colour with paint brush clothes Plus the three major form changes: 5. Maraquan 6. Mutant 7. Baby
BONUS: Draw a pet you love in a colour you hate, or vice-versa.
Week 2: Pets 8. The first pet species you owned 9. Your current dream pet 10. A pet with a pet pet 11. A neopet site character (shopkeeper, NPC, hero etc.) 12. Your least favourite pet species 13. An “old pose” style picture of a pet (angry, happy, defended, sick, etc.) Make one up if an existing one doesn’t exist. 14. An unconverted neopet of your choice.
BONUS: Pick a pet or colour to draw from this page of unreleased colours.
Week 3: Characters, Plots and Events 15. A scene or character from a plot of your choosing 16. A character that gives out quests 17. An OTP or noTP of your choosing (eg: Sloth/Space Faerie for either) 18. A random event (list here) 19. Your Altador Cup team 20. A Battledome Challenger 21. A game or game character
Week 4: Difficulty Rating - Extreme 22. A landscape of your favourite neopian land 23. Draw a (hypothetical) scene or excerpt from a Neopian book (eg: The Mystery of the Kougra Paw) 24. A Neopian pop culture crossover (like from this list, or one of your own!) 25. A pet drawn in full customisation 26. Invent your own colour, or design/redesign a pet/colour combo of your choosing. 27. Draw a neopet based on real life animals. Make it as realistic as possible.
I suck at drawing, but I’m going to try.
I’ll probably do this! Just… not everyday but these will be nice warm ups. :)
The spell is something I think about constantly! ;_; I could have my clone just run errands, answer my phone, cook and clean while I can just focus on drawing but I know in the end, I’d just end up HORRIBLY bored. Regardless, I still often daydream about what the world would be like if magical powers existed, and I could practice magic.
I had to dissect a shark for Marine Biology back in high school! I’ve also dissected a sea star and jumbo squid for class as well. In one of my sketchbooks, I got to write with squid ink! Anyways, for the shark, we had to cut open the stomach to check for contents, and my shark had a squid in it! The head was digested but the tentacles were untouched. My lab partner took off the beak though, ugh. Our teacher let us keep what we found, so the next day I brought in a jar and some rubbing alcohol and he still sits on my book shelf.
As for the dog skull, I found it while hiking with friends in the desert! I got really excited because I’ve always wanted a skull but never knew where to get one. It was missing its mandible and most of its teeth, I should have looked more but I was just so happy. I took it home with me and asked my life drawing teacher (who was also into taxidermy) how to clean it.
(sorry, putting a read more cause cleaning it is gross and idk how sensitive you are)
