I'm an illustrator currently working as a 2D artist for mobile apps, but my first love is storytelling! [Artblog: http://blog.inkgizmo.com] [Tumblr: http://inkgizmo.tumblr.com]
If thumbnails aren’t your thing, you can check out the blog post archive of my entire run of 30 Characters in 30 Days 2013 here.
I am happy to have succeeded in my first year as a challenger! I used 2013 as a month of no-pressure discovery by exploring subjects that I like while experimenting with my method. Along the way I ended up developing some good time-management habits for sure! It also left me anxious to start storytelling again, which was an interesting and encouraging feeling. It’ll be fun to look back on this set next year!
Cheers and congratulations to all participants!
You find her behind the ebb of every tide and the rush of every current.
(And that’s it for my 30 Characters in 30 Days 2013! Summary post with musings to come.)
She was the final line of defense, and she knew that she could allow nothing to get by.
She was always up for mischief, even when dressed in her Sunday best.
(I had this dress as a child. It was a wine-colored velvet and the least comfortable thing I remember.)
He has a wardrobe centered around dozens of fancy scarves, vests, and canes.
For just a moment, the fireflies looked like his own personal starry night sky.
When she moved it was like watching a garden of paradise in motion.
She needed to become stronger, but time was running out.
All that you see as she runs the bases is a blur!
Pretty enthusiastic about sewing things as many things as he could together before the house wakes up, which sometimes led to less-than-helpful results.
Hands-down the most delicious power in the entire world.
He just knows we’ll go back to the moon and beyond some day, and when we do, he is going to be ready.
Really the “apprentice” title was unnecessary, since if she was dowsing she was dowsing, and if she was not she was not.
She lucked into that second level and had a long, long way to go.
Lizzie had been on the shelf for far too long. She thought that it was about time that SOMEONE played with her again.
Why limit yourself to just apples?
(Named after the achievement in Glitch, the little MMO that could. You are sorely missed!)
She still keeps teatime every day, though she hasn’t had a guest in ages.
He built his kingdom from the ground up.
(Image edited 2013-11-19. Had his left foot reversed. Oops. >_<)
Something was amiss in the kingdom, and Princess Milia was sure that being told not to worry was the worst sign.
Dress inspired by this Rohit Bal India Bridal Fashion Week 2013 dress and cape-style sleeves.
He’s a mer-MAN, Pa, a mer-MAN.
Feathered fiend? Or just a question of a pinion?
Her wardrobe is unashamedly based off of a Crayola crayon box. Her motto? “The brighter, the better!”
His resume simply reads, “I lift things.”
A light and breezy kind of personality.
Lacking diamonds, a mechanical bird is a good substitute for a girl’s best friend.
A sweet confection, probably.
Gary could not understand why the kids suddenly started copying his wardrobe.
He has quite a lot of friends that he can ask when he needs a bit of help.
Every gal needs some way to defend herself when the terrors of the West come a-calling.
The curious Shifter collects and dons many different personas. He’s just trying to find a skin in which he can be comfortable.
