I mentioned in my last blog entry, that I have already missed a few days of Inktober in week two and three, and I lag behind again, but I’m motivated to catch up and draw the missing pieces. I want to show you my drawing of week three in this blog post. I hope you like it. 🙂

The second Inktober week passed quickly. I haven’t done a drawing every day because I wasn’t really motivated. I was kinda feeling ill and I didn’t know what to draw… I messed up nearly every drawing in my opinion.
But now I have started again and made an Inktober drawing with my new Pental Brush Pen. I hope I’ll stay motivated this time. The following drawings are from the second Intkober week.
Some of you, who follow me on Instagram, already know this, but I wanted to blog about it too. I participated in Inktober this year. The first week has already passed by and I wanted to show you all of the drawings I have made. I hope I’ll stay tuned and keep drawing an ink drawing for Inktober every day.
I painted the next Art Nouveau Pokemon painting yesterday. I painted Gothorita and Gothita and tried to make them look like shiny Pokémon, but that was kind of difficult because the colour difference between shiny and normal Pokèmon is not that large.
I used my new Schmincke watercolours and I still love them so much. I wanted to make a galaxy-like background, but I think I used too many different colours. It looks kind of messy.
I also made veeeery many mistakes in this painting. I don’t know why, but it was really hard for me to paint this, but surprisingly I had so much fun with it.
I really like it in the end, though. I recorded the painting process again, but I have to work at the video now. I’ll put the link here later.
I began a series of paintings where I am going to draw the shiny version of female looking Pokémon in Art Nouveau style. I started with Lilligant and want to paint Guardevoir, Gothorita, Meloetta and Lopunny too. You can leave your suggestions in the comment section, I am maybe going to include this Pokémon also.
I designed the Art Nouveau background on my computer this time. This was very helpful. The painting was made with watercolour again, but I used a fineliner instead of coloured pencils.
I also made a speed paint video. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/oc38XVM3ZDg
There is one famous YouTube artist, his name is Jazza, who makes monthly challenges for his subscribers. I really like the idea to challenge myself with a drawing that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. Therefore, I decided to participate this month. I really struggled because I thought I couldn’t do that, but I finished my painting today and handed it in.
The name of the challenge is Mix’n Match. One had to pick one character and one environment out of three random generated characters and environments and to make a painting of it. Here is a link to the videos with the challenge, rules, prices and so on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K05CLMMPBwE
I chose the “hairy professor that loves to draw who’s wielding fire” and “a giant maze that is extremely windy and features a demonic altar”. I did a mashup with Adventure Time because I love it so much. I don’t know if that is allowed… I hope so. I didn’t copy the whole maze exactly, though.
I had to take WIP pictures to prove that the painting was made by me. I’ll put them below. I’m sorry for the bad quality of them… I hope you like the finished painting. It was a great experience for me to participate in this challenge and I had much fun. Here is a link to the Newgrounds website, where I uploaded the picture for participation: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/fabiennedelalune/beloved-and-hated-crown

I love Adventure Time and Art Nouveau style, so I combined them and painted the following watercolour painting in the last couple of days. I chose my favourite character, the Flame Princess, for the painting, but I want to make more of these paintings with other Adventure Time characters.
As I said, I used watercolour, but I also used coloured pencils to redraw the lines, like I did in my last watercolour painting. I really like the effect. The painting was quite a challenge for me because it is more detailed than my other paintings and contains motifs that I have not painted so often like the fire lilies. I kind of messed up the hands and my pencils sketch shines through in some areas, what makes the painting appear “dirty” but I think the painting came out quite well, and I am happy with it. I should practice painting hands and draw the sketch with a matching coloured pencil, though.
