Inktober 2014 - Week One by Meketaten
Inktober 2014 - Week One
Phew! I actually made it through a week of ink drawings for Inktober! I think this is the first time I've actually gotten myself to sit down and draw every day for an artistic event. I'm having a lot of fun. Even when I just toss something up to meet the deadline people seem to respond well to it so I'm glad. :D

These were all posted to my brand new Instagram which you guys should go follow, if you have one! It's always cool seeing dA people on other sites. :)

Trying to mix original stuff with fanart but honestly the original stuff has gotten a better response from people so I might just keep going with that. :o The illustrations are as follows:

1) Strigformes Necromancer (Owls!)
2) Faerie playing in the autumn leaves
3) A baker troll, as suggested by my sister. I love him.
4) Elspeth Tirel from Magic: The Gathering
5) Kuvira, the new Legend of Korra villain
6) A shop keeper and a rich elven wizard haggle over some spellbooks. (My favorite!)
7) Adara (my wizard character) is offered a roasted rat by a party member.

So what do you think, deviantart? Which ones would you like to see more of?

Happy Birthday, Skirtz! Sadie/Erandur by Meketaten
Happy Birthday, Skirtz! Sadie/Erandur
For Skirtz's birthday! :D Our D&D 5th Edition characters definitely heard some Passion Pit and started groovin'. www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bfseW… I TRIED TO MAKE HER FEET TASTEFULLY HAIRY (?) BUT... WELL... HOBBIT FEET what are ya gonna do... I still think they're cute. Erandur's got his little silver comb. 

Sadie is Alli's character, a halfing rogue with a crush on my wizard character Erandur, who is totally inspired by the Skyrim follower of the same name: elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Er…

Skirtzzz
ALLIIIIIISOOOOOOON I MISS YOUR FACE. Though I can be there with you on your birthday, I will sit here listening to your music and drawing. Fleet Foxes all up in here. YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS!! (iknowaboutit...)

I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS. DRAWING STUFF FOR YOU ALWAYS MAKES ME PUT EXTRA EFFORT IN. TRYING TO USE THE CARTOONING TIPS. I LIKE THIS ONE. YES. CAN I COME SEE YOUR LAKE NOW SO WE CAN DANCE IN THE FOREST? AND EAT AT GRANMA'S? K. YOU DA BESS. ILU.

Sketch Dump 2014 by Meketaten
Sketch Dump 2014
PHEW, back from an amazing vacation with my waifu Skirtzzz. She's graciously been on my case about posting more and damnit, it's time for me to listen. We went through my sketchbook and she pointed out a lot of things I'd left TO BE SEEN BY NONE but where's the fun in that? I also had a chance to sit down and crank out art finally. So here's a whole bunch of randomness!

1) A Hook for Skirtzzz :>
2) As mentioned in her August Sketch Dump, Skirtzzz and I are obsessed with hot old guy characters. We tried to design our own and the young ladies they would... woo... I guess.. with their SEXY OLDNESS. WE'RE WEIRD, OKAY. TELL ME THAT'S NOT A GOOD LIFETIME MOVIE.
3) Rocket Sabrina from Pokemon Adventure cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thu…
4) Elspeth Tirel from MTG. FAVORITE PLANESWALKER. ;(
5) Messing around with styles for Adara Jakeem, my new wizard/rogue Pathfinder character. She has a scorpion familiar and fights for gender equality for schools of magic heck yeah. 
6) NATHANIEL THE BARD from our PF campaign, he is the definition of a magnificent bastard. 
7) So is Nym... and his son Theo. (PF OCs)
8) Two of the Maestro wizards from our PF campaign. Costume design is hard. 
9) Gaelean reading Nym's telling diary.
10) Lots of Sabrina (Pokemon) sketches.
11) Quig the gnome cleric from PF
12) Tarold the dwarf, he was supposed to have steampunk armor idek costumes are haaard...
13) I love this design but it can only be described as the girl from All Dogs Go to Heaven all grown up
14) Skirtzzz and I love Erandur from Skyrim (BEST FOLLOWER AMIRITE?) so I'm roleplaying him in his younger days in our brand new D&D 5th edition campaign. elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Er… "WAS THAT METAL GRINDING ON STONE??"
15) MOZENRATH!!!!! from Aladdin the Animated Series, I kind of need to draw him way more all the time. 
16) The sassiest Shallan ever, from the Stormlight Archive series. YES ARE YOU READING IT TOO?? HOLY SHIT IT'S SO GOOD!!
17) YAMI YUGI!!!!!!!!!! 
18) Gaelean and Theo (after a drawing lesson from Skirtzzz )
19) Sketch of the Ice Witch from our PF campaign, also two of the paintings are of Sven (Skirtzzz's hobbit character) and Gaelean running away from said witch. I'm doing a bigger/better painting but the coming is slowwwwww... 
20) Nym in the desert near the Fold, should probably finish this one too...

1994-2014 Twenty Year Improvement Meme by Meketaten
1994-2014 Twenty Year Improvement Meme
I'm really glad I did this. I always feel like I've been stagnant in my art since about my teen years, and though there hasn't been as much growth as I wanted til recently, it's good to see that I was actually making progress during that time. 

This was tough because the quality of my drawings tend to fluctuate almost daily but I tried to pick my best work/favorite pieces out of those years. There was a lot of fat to cut. 

Also, it is REMARKABLE how much of an impression Yu-Gi-Oh! had on my art. Anime in general, yes, but mostly just drawing Yami Yugi over and over again. 

I've been bouncing back and forth between cartooning and realism and I'd really like to just focus on realism for a while and then work my way back to cartooning. I just want to be an all around better artist and even looking at my proudest pieces from last year, there's so much stiffness and bad anatomy. The IMC gave me much more patience with my work so I'm gonna use it to actually finish things and do it right. 

That being said... I'd better go finish some of the ones at the bottom there so I can post them!

Hey friends! How are your respective summers going? I'll be travelling all over the place this month... Florida then Maine then Seattle. I'll be at PAX Prime if anyone else is going. :D When I get back I want to post a lot more! Especially Portal 2 stuff, so much more fanart I'd like to do for that game.
