I joined the NYC chapter of Women in Animation this September, and hopped on their Discord server to find they were warming up for Inktober. But something’s going on with the Inktober thing, so thankfully WIA made a prompt list of their own this year!
These were all done in Procreate on my iPad, taking from 15 minutes to two hours, depending on how much I was feeling it. These are all obvs just sketches, and not finished works.
Their prompt list:
Here were my responses:
Autumn: Failed Big Apple: Uh… also failed Potion
4. Movie Monster
Inspired by Pan’s Labyrinth
This is drawn straight from a freezeframe of a Flatbush Cats video.
7. Apple Picking
Er… this is definitely the weakest one because it’s hard to tell that the camera is overhead everything, looking down on the scene.
Cryptid I edited and drew on someone’s photo from Google maps. Sorry.
10. Self Care
Pet at your own risk.
12. Pumpkin Spice
13. Magic Wand
Another Tarot card drawing.
ANOTHER Tarot card drawing, but mostly a portrait of Leah Penniman.
Inspired by Transformers!
17. The Woods
Inspired by Over the Garden Wall
Inspired by The Craft
This is a drag queen angel that I saw at a Pride march a few years ago. Her wings took up the entire span of the street!
21. Horror: FAILED…
23. Hiking: FAILED. Whoops!
Another colorful character I saw at Pride.
25. Haunted House
Inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas
28. National Animation Day!
Er… I think I failed the concept, but I still think it’s pretty. The fox is a classic trickster! Get it?
Inspired by The Repair Shop
Poor TNR cattos. It’s for their own good but they have no idea what’s going on the entire time. Really people, just give a ton of money to Flatbush Cats so they can take care of these bebs.
Thanks for looking!
