day 25 – Jabbernowl

| December 1, 2013 | 0 Comments

day 25 - Jabbernowl 001

The Jabbernowl. as I see it, a cross between an owl and a donkey. Another term used in W.C. Field’s movie “The Bank Dick” (1940) and refers to a person who is a “blockhead”. The term seems to have been traced to Francois Rabelais’ “Gargantuan and Pantagruel” from 1532 and refers to a person with a large and misshapen head. The concertina? Well, he likes a funky polka beat. (dead computer = unfinished and uncolored – with this one I bow out say I am done after a long couple of days trying to get my computer fixed – the rest are all really rough sketches)

Though the server time for this challenge is set for “Eastern United States”… I live on the West Coast, so, it was still November 30th when I posted my last (and this) entry, thus successfully completing this years 30 Characters Challenge.  Woohoo!  But if it weren’t for deadlines, nothing would ever get done… am I right?

This year,  I tried to push the “quality” as much as the default quantity.  I wanted each character to match an overall style, and I’d like to think I was quite successful in that, even though I wasn’t entirely sure what that style was gonna be when I started.  There were a lot more animals and creatures this year than I thought there would be.  Was kinda interesting seeing that unfold.  I would also occasionally look back at my entries from 2011, and I must say, I see some growth… which is awesome!

It was a blast seeing some contestants from previous years continuing in the challenge, as well as seeing some new blood, my hats off to all who attempted it.  I’ve got a couple ideas for next years challenge if I participate… but I’ll have to wait til next year to see if I follow through with any of them, or something completely different.

Until then… cheers!

Day 30 – Ms. Mask

| November 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

Ms. Mask is a mysterious person of unknown origin.  She has cuts all over her body and always wears a mask (probably to cover scars on her face).  The mask is also broken, suggesting she has been in many fights after she put on the mask.  No one has actually seen her fight, but everyone is afraid of her.  What is her secret?  We may never know.

#29 – Black Friday

| November 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

Black Friday

What started off as a simple day to get a bunch of Christmas shopping done and save some money in the process, soon began to grow and grow…  Little did financial-minded retailers knew they were giving birth to an entity that would soon consume the nation and even the world.  Black Friday has grown out of control… it now overshadows the holiday of Thanksgiving and turns even the sanest of people into monsters who will do anything (even kill innocent people) in their quest to snag a bargain.  Can anything stop Black Friday… or is it too late for that?
